And then there were two....

Sorry the photo is so dark, but the camera batteries are on their last ounce of juice and there's no time to charge them....

The Hush,Hush dress is really coming to be again!! As you may be able to make out in the photo, there are two with finished decreases -- and only one with a stripe! Yipee!! I still have a ways to go - I think 6 more inches till I am kitting the lace at the top, but I am very pleased!! I will have a dress to wear this summer.... Now I just have to decide what length to make it, the pattern length or shorter, I'll have my measuring tape out tonight!

And because I can't buy yarn, and my copy of Victorian Lace Today was lonely and two people on my lace kal just finished gorgeous shawls from this book.... I bought myself a treat yesterday! I am really excited to look through and find a shawl to do after my dress is done. I would really like to do a round shawl, I haven't done one of those yet - so I am sure that it would be a good learning experience. Also, in my continuing efforts to reduce my stash - there is a bunch of lace yarn that could be used up. (Although, black lace yarn is on the list of to-buys on my day of yarn purchasing - April 16th)

Have a good week!
