about that wreath…

This weekend I had the best of intentions to finish that Winter Wreath I wrote about in my last post.  I sorted through all the finished flowers, decided what I still needed to do, and then I was  stuck.  I couldn’t come up with any ideas for the embroidery for the flowers & leaves I needed to finish the wreath.  So it was back to my Golden Ratio Blackwork Project.

I am estimating I’m about 1/4 of the way through the first, and biggest, square.  It’s slow going, but I’m very happy with how it’s looking so far!

I also picked up a new cookbook I had ordered a month or so ago from my favorite bookstore – The Nordic Cookbook by Magnus Nilsson.  There are so many delicious sounding recipes in it that I can’t wait to try.  🙂
