Almost done

Look at these beautiful lillies my son chose for me. I've got another 3 stems in a different vase so my house smells beautiful :-)

It's lovely watching them gradually open up into something beautiful

Today I've been busy with boring household jobs like washing and ironing clothes. I did manage to squeeze in another row of my Mum's shawl. Just 2 purl rows, 1 lace row and the cast off to go now. The lace row will be slow, 3 beads for every 12 stitch pattern repeat...

I've counted and I think I've got _just_ enough beads. Fingers crossed! I might even be able to get it finished and blocked by Friday. I can't wait to see how it turns out :-D

    1. Thank you :) The mirror was made by my Mum so it's nice to repay her by making her a shawl :)
