A sampling of my designs as well as personal stitching, and life in general.

 I waited from the week-end to show an update on Pandemic becasue I had a stopping point to show off.

I just finished 2 cards of Splendor silk - 12 ply silk, 8 yards - when using 1 ply to stitch with, it was 96 yards of silk. 

My original goal was to be finished by the end of July.
Revised goal, the end of December.
Meanwhile I'm also doing a medium sized piece
and have a small piece for waiting rooms, etc.

Time to go stitch more!

 It's time again for the SAL.   I had picked this piece partially becasue I prefer to work on black on the summer and lots of natural light.  During the last three weeks, it has rained a fair amount, been as humid as could be without raining and the cicadas.  Yes I have gotten some work done on the piece, it has been a royal pain.  The directions are still terrible and thre threads lsited are no the ones in the package, etc.

Here it is as of today


                        I finally got the black outlines done.  Each of them has been ripped out at least twice if not more times.  Nothing on the left matches on the right, etc.  There is no photo to go by.  However I will just do what I can to "fill in" with the coloring that I like.  This piece could have been so much better with someone else writitng the directions and doing the charting.

Meanwhile - enjoy the stitching of everyone else.


Have a great stitching  week !
