Peeking Back

The peacock's back look in this piece reminds me of how much I've been doing and how much I've been neglecting the stitching.  At least thing are supposed to calm down now, and I should be able to get more done.  In this, he's got a few more feathers and the tree has a bit more background.

All The Crosses

All the cross stitches are done!  I've only got the beading, specialty stitches, and back stitches to go.  I'm so happy to get it done!

Cosplaying Around

 Looks like a lot of people having fun in costume!

Working Back Over

It's time to finish off all these motifs I kind of skipped over.

Padding The Petal

So the top is done as is the first petal of six.  Getting somewhere with this piece.

On The Fly

 Another set of flying birds.  The owl is particularly stunning.

All Eight

 Here are some photos of the whole set of temari I donated to Hospice Angelus.  They raised fifty euro for the charity.  I believe they would have raised more if they were labeled something other than "decorative balls."  It wasn't even mentioned that they were handmade.  Ah well... the person who did the silent auction was busy and did similar labeling jobs on all of the items.  I don't believe she gets that advertising helps add to the amount of money you collect.
