Progress on the Florentine Pocket

I have the whole dark grey/black skeleton stitched now and the colours selected.   These look random enough to me so far and certainly very colourful.   Hopefully in a week or so I will be able to make up the bag.
Today I passed by my LNS and called in to pick up one DMC floss.   Look what jumped into my hand as well :-)   Who knew that Highland Mist was such a beautiful colour.  
This will become a hardanger piece (once I look in my stash for suitable fabric) but may have to be put out of temptations way until I finish the current WIP's.  On the other hand, in a couple of weeks the HD3QBEM and I are going away for a long weekend break and I will need a small project to stitch then so....we shall see.
Meanwhile I have a date with a good book, a hot water bottle and a warm bed.


  1. Those threads, jumping into your hand like that and insisting you bring them home - so forward of them!

  2. Your florentine is looking lovely. The colours go together so well.

  3. Very nice! I like the orderliness (is that a word?) of bargello.
