On the Hooks and Off the Hooks

On the Hooks - I am almost finished with the purple ripple. I've neglected this a little, I could have had it finished long ago. I am putting the ruffles on the baby afghan - this is a forever project - Terry Kimbrough likes a basic simple afghan body, then an elaborate, complicated, Victorian border. I have also started on a baby shawl for the shawl ministry. This is done on a Tunisian hook with the Shells and Columns stitch. The group has decided to give a white shawl to every baby baptized at the church. Someone suggested embroidering the baby's name and date of birth on white satin ribbon. I seem to be the only one in the group with a machine that has that capability. It won't take much time once I've practice a little. I've done it once for a Terry Kimbrough afghan I did for a customer. It probably means I'd like to have my machine set up in a semi-permanent place.

Off the Hook - oops, looks like I haven't finished anything new.
