A Bargello Finish!

Yay! A finish just before I move!  All the stitching's done, but the piece won't take its final form until I'm in Moldova.  Andreas wants it to be a dice bag, so it probably will be that.  It's always been meant to be a bag, but I had no clue what to store in it.  I love working with these Tentakulum silks.  They're hard to find in the US, but if you see some, pick them up.

Not Quite Yet

I think the next time I take this out, I'll just go ahead and finish it.  Didn't do it this time, but was tempted!

Dragging Out the Last

One day soon, I'm going to be working on this and just go for finishing it.  That day wasn't the last time I worked on it, though.

Starting on the Last

I am finally on the last rectangle of the bag!  It's started, and I only have to finish it to get the whole thing done.

I successfully resisted starting the fourth rectangle until the third one's done.  It's completed now, so I just have to work on this last part and the stitching will be done.  Yay!

Still Being Good

I've managed to resist the urge to start the fourth rectangle once more.  I'm even almost done with the third!

Still Have Willpower

I've still managed not to start the fourth rectangle.  Who knows if I'll be able to hold on until this one's done, though.  After all, I'm -so close- to being completely done.

Back in Bag

Truly, I'm being good.  As you can see, I haven't started the fourth panel yet.  Got another couple of stripes done, though.

So far I've managed to resist starting the fourth rectangle and have kept working on just the third.  But I'm so close to being done!

Second Square Done!

Yay!  I finished the second square!  Only a bit less than two more to go.

Over Halfway

I believe I am now officially over halfway done with the embroidery on this.  One whole and two partial rectangles to go.

Bagging It

It's getting more baglike as I start in on the third side.  And it's getting more done!  Yay, maybe I'll finish it before the end of the year.

Caved In

I ended up starting the third rectangle, so I could feel like I had a new start.  it's a more orange-ish and spiky one, so it's almost like a new start, isn't it?

Waving Along

I am now officially over halfway done on the second rectangle!  Now I have to decide next time I work on it if I am going to start on the third or just continue with the second until it's done.

Waving Along

Three more stripes done on the second rectangle, so it's almost half done.

Riding the Wave

I am getting on with the second rectangle.  Can't start a third until I've got the top row done, and I'm a bit over halfway to that.  Maybe I'll have the stitching done by the end of the year or earlier at this rate.  Only a bit more than two and a half more rectangles to go.

Yet Another Building...

... is done.  I'm still less than halfway across the area, but I think I'm going faster on this one than I did on the first side.

A Rectangle Done!

I finally finished the first of four rectangles!  I think it looks good, and the second one is well started.  Now to speed it up.

Thursday, May 06, 2010

The corner of the second rectangle is coming along pretty well; the pattern's emerging.  I'm also nearly done with the first rectangle.  The last line of dark diamonds is in place!

A Pattern Emerges

The second rectangle's pattern is hard to establish with a thread length - the gaps between are just too big.  So, now that I've added three colors to it, you can see the wave emerging.  I'm almost done with the first basketweave rectangle, too.
