Drawn Thread Nearly Finished

Just cruisin' on Drawn Thread B My Valentine.  
I have a little on the bottom left square then one more row.  
I love doing these.
Each square is a small triumph!
Tried another spot to take pictures and this appears to be the best yet.
I did it in my sewing room with all the lights on especially the pseudo Ott.  
These colors came out pretty true.  
Did a little shopping yesterday with my friend Arttie.  
She is making a quilt top for me, a throw for the bottom of the bed.
It will then give my mom something to hand quilt. 
We went to the quilt store and picked out fabric. 
We went to the yarn store too.  
I got a book of hats/scarves/mittens etc, a pattern for baby/kid sweater and sock yarn.
The sweater pattern has owls around the yoke of the sweater that are just a variation of a cable stitch.  If I don't get the pattern now, while I can, when I want one, I won't be able to get one.  
Downton Abbey tonight but, also Sons of Liberty starts on the History Channel so dvr'ing that one to watch later.  
Hope you have had a great weekend.
It was pretty good here.  The weather was really nice the last few days but, cold today, 10 degrees right now. 
I hope you ladies on the East Coast have projects ready and head lamps in case the power goes out and you can keep stitching.  
Stay safe!
Have a wonderful week.
Keep on Stitching
