Whelp, back to the drawing board

Occasionally, I do goof up on an idea. I spent yesterday working on the second layer of leaves. The color is right, but the size and shape are wrong. So today I'm working on the redesign.

Must stitch faster!

Stage 2 done!

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.

The brooch is coming along.

Well the piece is coming along very nicely. I really like how the picots are coming along, both on the link sections, and on the leaves themselves. I'm looking forward to seeing this completed.

Happy Monday!

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.

Happy stitching!
