Psssstttt.....secret stitching and other things

 I've been working on some secret stitching and this is all I can show you till I give it to my swap partner......MMmmmm I wonder who that could be?
 I've also put the border onto this Christmas stitchery, I just need to add the backing and sleeve and it's ready for the Christmas box :)
 While keeping busy I've also been working on this baby blanket during my lunch times at work, I'm onto the final ball of wool and just need to decide to leave as is or add a border to finish it off a bit more what do you think?
Here's a close up of the pattern, very pretty and simple repetitive stitch so relaxing to work on :)

All your projects are wonderful. As for the blanket... if you don't have more wool... then leave it as it is.

Another lovely crocheted blanket! I love the pattern, What is it called? Maybe I need to start a crocheted baby blanket as well as a few kiddy quilts to put away for a future (not thought of yet) grandchild.
