I took these on Saturday. It was gloriously sunny and warm here in southeast Michigan, so I finally took some outdoor shots. I only wish the ground had been dry -- we have some ivy under our evergreen tree (pine? spruce? I'll have to find out) but I had no intention of laying this creamy beauty on the sodden leaves. Maybe when it's finished the yard will be dryer, and I'll do it then.A close up of the stitch pattern.
