Adding Greens

I added some green shoots this week to the band, and started with the insides of the main ladder. The picture's even a bit straighter this time. Hopefully next week I'll have more fleshing out done.

Seventh Part Done

Yay! I'm caught up with this again. The next part doesn't come out until August first, so I can put it aside for the next week and a bit and know I won't get behind on it. A couple of colors make their first appearance in this, too.

Another House Done

This week I finished the twin to the brown house I completed a few weeks ago. Things are moving to the top somewhat quickly now, and I even managed to do a bit more on the side town scene.

Some of the Brick

I not only did some window this week, I did a bit of the building around the door. It's all whole cross stitches and worked over a big surface, so it feels kind of like doing a HAED design.

All the Way Across

If I haven't miscounted, I've got the top all the way across now. Just need to fill in the rest of the top strip and then the fun part - starting the different designs on the four sides.

Some rice stitches started this week - The four large stitches and then the bars of stitches at the top and side. They look like a lot of progress, even though they're very few stitches, because they're huge.

Lines and Flourishes

Both the egg and the connector are coming along fairly well. All of the inner line of the connector is done, and I will be adding the black this coming week. The egg's insides is no longer looking like swirls, but real palm leaf flourishes. Maybe I'll be able to start the third egg soon.
