    Closer up of the embroidered bit. Next panel I'm doing something other than chain stitch!

    Finished my cloth bag pimping up.

    Today's a great post day. A 1898 hat by Kristine Byrnes and a magnetic pin holder. She's not on Instagram but THANKYOU Bobbie. Xxx

    Lush cardigan. Done.

    Knitting in the button holes. Does anyone else get a bit anxious doing this?
