The first panel is moving along, the purple is working better than I thought. And, I've started a bit of the second panel, to see how the orange looked. (I like it!)

I've started laying in the gold. Right now it takes about 40 minutes per row. That'll go faster as I go along. (Part of it is that I'm working in a hoop, instead of a frame. But there will be fiddly stuff later, that needs to be in a hoop)

I've finished another of the weekly pieces. This one also has the back embroidered around the pin backing. This week willl be a week of getting pieces ready for display and sale. (Meaning, there will be outrageous amounts of detached butttonhole stitch. YAY!)(I sure know how to have fun, don't I?)
This week looks like it will also be a studio cleaning and rearranging kind of week. It definitely feels like spring, and I want to take advantage of the smell of new beginnings and the colors of new growth.
I spend so much time online, since that's where I get the majority of my inspiration, that I forget the visceral, commanding qualities of nature that also influence what I do. Sometimes it's good to give in to that wildness, and believe its promises.
