Hi folks! I am now working on a very large project. I'm stitching on a shirt and I am doing the text of Beowulf on it. So far, it's coming along very nicely, and stitching over paint has been interesting. More later.

Hi folks! I'm back at the studio, and feeling better. The gold border is done, and the dark purple french knots are put in next to the fleurs-de-lis. Time to finish up the black french knots, and the black border, and it's into its bath. (After its bathtime I'll add the pearls, and maybe opals.)

Hi folks! I'm starting a new, quickish piece. I start with a couple constraints. 1- it has to include squares and circles. And, 2- I want to use green, orange and turquoise. There's a default constraint, that this will be a brooch.
There should be more posts during the day.

Good afternoon folks! The brooch is coming along very nicely. Stage one of the petals is finished and now it's time for me to mount it on to some organza, and add some pearls and some leaves and then see how far it goes.
I like this process of stitching. I'm not sure what the end product is going to look like, but I'm having a lot of fun getting there.

This weekend I started a largish piece of lace for a large project. The spine of the lace is nearly done.
I prefer to work on 2 or 3 projects at the same time. That way, if I get stuck I have something else to work on, while I figure out a solution.
