Victorian Elegance

There are several photo's in this post, so I'll apologise in advance to those with a slow connection.

My weekend stitching for the last couple of months has been Indigo Rose's Victorian Elegance and I finally managed to get the finishing completed a couple of days ago. It's a very different colour palette to my usual smalls but I think it is indeed elegant. Here's the front

I had a major breakthrough with Dragon Ride this week when I finished the over-one. It should start to grow much quicker now :)

I also managed to finish the first of the bubble wrap sock, Dill condescended to model it for me :) I've cast on the second sock so I'm hoping that they get finished this month.

Victorian Elegance is beautiful Karoline, both stitching and finishing! The border reminds me of the Peace ornament she did some time back.

Karoline, I want one ;-) I really love this...I can't believe I'd love something done in black but this is sooooo classy and elegant. It was certainly given the right name. Your pictures are brilliant as well.

Hope you had a nice Easter weekend
