Not Quite East

Well, I made some progress on the big E, but didn't quite finish it. Need one more row and a half. I did, however, start the southwest point, so it's not all bad. At least it is beginning to look like progress again.

Still the Door

This week, it was still the door, but it's -really- almost done this time. My stitching on this in the coming week won't include the door. Besides the dark gray, I did some of the brick color at the very bottom of the piece. This means I've completed another column on the chart and go back to the top and see what's next.

Playing Footie

Yup, Bibe's got a foot now. It's to the point where all I have left is very little. Maybe this week I'll just finish him when he comes up in the rotation.

Next to Last

I completed the next to last part of Zentangle. One more section and it'll be done. The Marquoir group will be starting another Zentangle some time in the autumn. We haven't seen the design yet. I should be able to get this done once I finish up the part of the Kaleidoscope mandala I'm working on. I'm finishing only about a month and a half behind the people who completed it on time. Not bad for me.

Part Three Started

While I haven't quite finished part two yet, I did have floss still in my needle of the right colors to start part three. For part two, gold metallic needs to outline the rice stitch bars. Three is the last part, and, unlike the previouos workshop, it has a lot more work. There are cross stitches on the edges and even more rice stitches. On the other hand, it -is- getting done.

Black and Blue

This week's colors are black and blue. Both are roofs, too. It feels good to get working on the rooftops. Means I'm getting closer to having this part done.

Ornamental Beading

I participated in an exchange on the Brooke's Books yahoo group and decided to just finish an ornament I had already stitched instead of stitching a new one. This piece I completed back in December, but I finished it last week and mailed it to the Netherlands last Friday. I hope the recipient likes it. I think I'll make another one for myself.
