Last night I met a friend for tea after work. One thing about Alaska, there are coffee shops all over the place- we love hot drinks (and ice cream!). So when we get together we meet at a coffeeshop close to where I work and catch up over tea. It seems none of the local shops have much lighting so I typically take a non cross stitch project to work on when we meet over the winter. Come summer light is not an issue in Alaska. Plenty of sunshine all day long. This time I took a crochet baby blanket in progress for a coworker having her first baby. It took me a while to get the pattern down as I haven't done that pattern in a long time but I finally remembered how to make the turn. My best friend showed me how to do the stitch and it is a great travel piece. I just need to do one blanket ahead so I am not struggling to get something done on time for people that I want to gift a little handmade item for their little ones. Got a little bit of progress on this one.

Well that is all I have gotten done since I posted last. I hope you have had more stitchy time in your day. Marjo
