Am I Still Shopping?

Yes. But only for fibers. And maybe some plain canvas. Oh, and another pair of scissors???

For all who are interested in the Swedish Weaving thing, the latest issue of Mary Hickmott's New Stitches magazine on the newsstands now, has an article on it. She calls it Swedish Darning. And adapts it to other fabrics like Lugana or Aida. Probably not the latest issue in the U.K., but it is here in the states. It's the one with White Cliffs of Dover on the cover.

Just been plugging away at my own hand-painted canvas. Need to decide on a background. No way am I tent stitching the entire things.
