Thar she blocks!

No beading update today - I've been focusing on the mystery shawl - and after working all day on the edging that never ends...

It's a long (over 70 inches) shawl - but shallow. As you can see, it's pinned out right now - and I'm blocking the bejeezers out of it to get some depth, and nice sharp points.

Hopefully I can talk Dave into helping me get some modelled shots when it's dry.

Now, I did tell a little white lie - I wasn't working on the edging all day. We made a quick trip to my grandma's to deliver my Aunt's wedding bouquet I put together for her. The wedding is at the end of the month, so I wanted to make sure she had everything accounted for.I love the little butterfly and the tartan ribbon. (We have Scottish ancestry)
So... now that's done, I guess I better get knitting - and beading!

That bouquet is really striking with the dark purple...really nice! Can't wait to see the shawl after blocking.

Wow, that shawl was finished quickly! The bouquet looks wonderful! Very different from what I've seen so far. I hope your Aunt loved it.

Love the bouquet - you did a lovely job.

It looks really nice, the bouquet that is. I'll let you know about the shawl when I see it in person.
