This week I have mostly been...

 Doing Blackwork. This is the kit I received the other day, with the first half finished. I changed some of the filling patterns, and I tend towards more open fillings, so I have not filled as much as in the pattern, but as it is all still on the frame I can add more if it looks too empty at the end.
Blackwork is not very portable, but I can do it while watching television. We haven't got a signal at the moment so we are working our way through episodes of Jonathan Creek on the computer via an HDMI cable.

More lace

This is a sample of Torchon ground showing four different stitches.
This is the finished sample of Flanders, with the (not very) heart shapes.
