something to show finally

I received my new skein of Paua Abalone so I'm moving ahead with Celtic Birds II. Home stretch! I'll be glad to have this piece complete, it's been lingering forever it seems.
Here is my progress on Book of Ink Circles. I'm almost fnished with part 2 but as you can see I have a lot to put back in for part 1. And I haven;t even started frogging out the knot to the top right of the picture. That is also one stitch off. :-( Bummer.
I also finished up the needlebook portions of Quaker Turtles. The green linen I'm using is Parkland from Silkweavers. I've tried to get a nice photo of the color but just can't. I'm tried everything. I think I need a cloudy day to get it right.

You are always working on such magnificent pieces. I can't wait to see those little turtles put together. I just love the monochromes, I will be starting a Glendon Place Wisdom piece before too long; the celtic birds are awesome.

Lovely WIP's! Hang in there - you're nearly done with the Celtic Birds! :)

I'm keen to see the assembled Quaker Turtles - I've had my eye on the chart for a while but am worried about my finishing skills!!!

Your stitching is so pretty and such an inspiration to get to work on my own that I'm shutting the PC down right now!

Great progress Margie, I can't believe that you think Celtic Birds has been hanging around for a long time lol.
