Butterfly Kit

Luca-S has a whole series of butterfly kits in their catalog.  This one was the only one in stock when I went to their store in Gemeni the other day.  Disappointed!  I do want the other ones, and I am definitely changing out the fabric....

At A Snail's Pace

This was a crazy January start from three years ago.  I've finally got it done.  When I worked on it, it was pretty quick.  My main problem with the kit is the color difference between the kit's photo and the colors provided in the kit.  There was at least a three shade difference.  I'm thinking of getting MolDeco to make this into a pencil box.

I Won!

Our framing shop held their annual embroidery exhibit.  It's the largest in Moldova, and they give prizes.  It's also curated.  I was asked to submit three of my pieces.  One won both the people's choice and technical competence awards.  I was shocked!  I was also  the only non-Moldovan in the exhibit.

To The Bottom

I've managed to bump into the bottom of the piece - the butterfly on the left is all the way to the bottom.  Now to fill in all that missing stitching....

The Silk Mill had a sale a little bit ago, so I bought the left hand package and got the right hand package free.  They're going in my suitcase to Luanda.  No idea what I'm doing with them yet, but they're going.

Everywhere A Line

Lines everywhere, but at least they're new ones.  I'm working on getting the width of the piece plotted out.

Be Egged

We got some eggs from Angela Eiiseeva.  They're beautiful additions to add to my egg collection.
