More Mandala

Still progressing on the mandala.  I'm almost done with this set of squares - one full one started and then a partial one at the bottom.

Started on the Fourth

Real progress, in that I've started working on the fourth of five jellyfish.  The third one, as far as I can tell, is totally done.  The first one is, too, which leaves two for more work later.  No idea on if I'll get done in one pass on the fourth, but it's started.

Another Stitchalong Start

This piece is called Fiori, and it's a little circle of flowers.  I thought it was perfect to do over one, so I am.  I also changed the colors, as usual.  It's through Marquoir, of course!

Near the Bottom

I am almost done with the sides outlining!  The last inward part will start the bottom.  That means I'm getting somewhat close to being done on all the cross stitching and can start the special stitches soon.

Rita's Asian Block

This block was sent home to Rita about a week and a half ago.  The picture at top is how I received it.  All fabrics used were from kimonos.

And here it is after my work.  I added some embellishment to the lady, as she was rather drowned in the other wonderful things.  Then I did more rickshaw wheels and some seams.

Four Parts Done

This is getting done quickly.  I've now got four parts done in this picture.

All Crosses Done

All the cross stitches are done and the backstitches are started, so this is almost done.  Yay!
