Finished!

Hi folks! I've finished off one of the weekly pieces and will be donating it to an auction to support City Year.

When I get more info, I'll post it here.

Info on the piece...
It's inspired by Australian Aboriginal art.
The pearls and silver cord represent some constellations of the southern hemisphere.
This only took 24 hours (I'm getting faster!)

Fourth weekly piece

I'm running a little behind the schedule I want to follow. (I should be on weekly  6) However, I'm really happy with how this one is turning out. I should have a finished picture for tomorrow, and I can start the  next one!
Ciao!

It's coming along...

The current illumination is almost done. I just have some erasing to do, the initial letters, and the shading of all the leaves and stuff. Later in February (I don't want to post the finished piece until the recipient has seen it) I'll post the finished picture.

1 task, done!

Pearls!

I've added the pearls, and am almost ready to add the wire edging and cut this piece loose. I'll be working a lace edge around the piece to keep it feeling airy. There may be pearls in the lace, I'm not sure until I start stitching.

I'm very happy with the organic feel of the eyelets and french knots. I might need to make a big piece, like a necklace, on the same thought.

Have a fabulous Friday!

Progress!

The Kerouac/Walkabout piece is moving along nicely. It's taking longer than I thought it would (this really isn't a surprise) I am so pleased with how this base layer of work is coming out. It has a physical density that's just wonderful to hold. I am getting itchy to start the text layer of it, but that just has to wait at least for now.
Have a fabulous day!
