Since taking these pictures on Saturday, I've finished all the red on the roses. All I have to do is complete a couple of leaves and it'll be done. Good thing, too, since I have that other one that I got in the mail last week! For those of you keeping track, this one is the fourth of six. The needlework tools is the fifth of six. One more after that one, and mine comes home!

Pottering Along

Got a bit more on the pots done this time. I really didn't have much stitch time last week. This week has been a -little- better so far, but I just keep feeling like I'm falling farther behind. Oh well... at least I can see some progress on everything every week, and that's why I am doing this.

Part One Done, Onto Two and Three

I really like the copper on the inner tiling in the middle of the garden. Yes, it's all stitched in, just not on this picture. I've started filling in Parts 2 and 3. Because there are some charting errors on the Part 2 design, I'm going to be doing Parts 2 and 3 together using Part 3's chart to get it right. It's going to be hard to tell when I complete one part or the other, though.

I got at least half a line done on the huswif. It's a lot less yellow in person. Don't know what happened to the camera this week that made it so. I'll be finishing the rest of the band this week and hopefully the next band too, which is a really quick satin stitch band.

Heart Takes Shape

I've got the heart itself done but for the lines inside. Then, the circle on the outside and it's done. If only I can get some time. This week, I got very little stitching done - I ended up spending six hours on Wednesday finishing kissing pillows for a deployment party and then other things kept me busy the rest of the week. At least my husband's home this week. It's good to see him.

Goldwork - Silk and Metal GcC

For some reason, the background fabric looks really yellow in these pictures, but you can still see the progress I've made. Tomorrow I'll be filling in the flower petals with couching. There's still a chance of me finishing this before I go to France; otherwise, I'll have to fit the frame in my suitcase. I have until the end of July to get this done. I really want it done before that.

Michele's Round Robin

This is the piece I got in the mail on Tuesday. It's beautiful and I have no idea what the poem says. Anyway, Lynn managed to find me a pattern I really like for it and I will be getting it in the mail next week. This is the fifth piece, so there's still Yveline's to do after this one. Thank you to all who responded with help regarding the needlework tools! I'll be keeping those sites in mind.
