A Rainy Day in the Desert
Okay, a rainy day - one of several - in Atlanta. BUT I did finally get Part 1 of Desert DONE - all 13K+ stitches of it, including app. 600 beads :) I had the stitching done Saturday night, and spent 4-5 hours on Sunday getting the 2 rings of beads put on, while listening to the Euro 2012 games. Not necessarily by choice of course. Anyway, here is Part 1:
And then, here are a couple of close-ups of the beads:
In other stitching news, I did not go to the Tuesday night group, as I was feeling kind of not well, but I did make up for it during Thursday & Friday lunch times - I started Bent Creek's Glory as my new travel piece (2nd travel piece, I guess is more accurate). I found a couple of great flosses from the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe, and put them together with a couple of DMCs on 28ct Tea monaco:
Not much so far, but the blue section isn't very big; I plan to go to this week's Tuesday night, so if this gets attention instead of Rainforest, I hope to have the blue done, maybe a star, too :)
This week, now that I have Desert to a stopping place, Secret Victorian is coming back out. DH hasn't finished my new frame yet - all for the lack of a 7/8" hole bit - but I can move forward on SVG without it, for the time being :) I'll work on it for a bit, then Tuscany later this month, and then I think Lady & Unicorn will come back out in July - or so that's the rough plan as of today. Because we all know how I stick to stitching plans :)
Happy Stitching this week to everyone!
Wow, was this really short, or is it just me?
