Drawn Thread Ornament Done

I finished my Contemporary Drawn Thread class project this week. It's something I won't be doing again. It doesn't count toward my project challenge because it was a class during the challenge, but at least it's a Seminar piece done! I like the colors, but not the ornament. Maybe it'll grow on me. Looks like an art class project from middle school to me.

Wavy Spider Legs

No Honeydew this week! I used the two midnight blues - the metallic and the overdyed - to draw more spider legs all over my piece. I'm getting very close to halfway done with this part. It's going to be hard doing more work in this coming week, though, because I'm going on vacation for several days. Will bring stitching with me, but won't be dedicating time to stitching, if that makes sense. Every time I look at the center medallion, I smile. I really like the play of the copper and the blue.

Band's Done

I finished this really dense band this week, with no more frogging. Go me! Now to do the flip of the little line of bird above it and on to the next one. I'm looking at my rotation list and going ... geez, I'm not going to finish any of these things soon. They're all too big. Dazzle will probably be the next finished. I have completed two things this week - they'll be in separate entries.

Not So Red

More of the rooster's visible now. I should be finishing stitching it today and then sending it home later this week. This round robin, that includes my planets piece, is being cut short. The organizer is not going to be doing round robins anymore, so everything's going home. I have one more bit, another chicken, in my possession, and will stitch that before sending it home too. I hope someone's stitched something on my planets and I get them back.

Lady's Flag

I don't know why, but I didn't get a picture of this last week. This week, though, you can significant progress on the flag. Even though it's very detailed, there are surprisingly large chunks of one color. That makes stitching go a lot faster.

Edging Along

Shells on the border are what I got done on this piece this week. They're looking pretty good. Now to get those starfles done next and start the huge Jessica band...

Another Correspondence Course

The due date for this one, Algerian Eye to Czar, is the middle of October. After working on it this week and already frogging quite a bit, I can confidently say it's not going in on time. This is one of those things that just got away from me this summer.

The piece itself is a group correspondence course through EGA which I am taking via Cyberstitchers. I've changed canvas size, colors, and type of thread, but what's hardest for me is counting in this one for some reason. I'll get it done, but I'm not going to stress about it like I was earlier this week.
