Can I get a backrub, now?

pre-blocking

Hiawatha, pre-blocking
longer than me!


Lace: It's What's For Dinner!

Hiawatha soaking


gingham, a lace dance, and lots of pins

I'm off to stack wood. Again, backrub? Anyone? (I'll let you touch my lace...)

Wow! I never realized how beautiful that pattern is before. I look forward to seeing it modelled.

I read "lap dance" for lace dance.

I assume your back is aching because of the wood pile, but I don't see how crawling along the floor putting pins into gingham and lace could have helped.
But I'm sure it will all be worth it (and then some!) in the end.

That shawl is going to be a family heirloom no doubt.

That is a LOT of lace! :) How did the border work out for you?

It's a beautiful piece.

Wow, that does really look like it was intense blockage there, no WONDER your back needs a rub!

Ouch! Did it start to dry before you got it all pinned out? And how long exactly did that take?

Gorgeous! It makes me want to dig out the pattern and start yet another shawl.
