It's DONE!

Yup, after months of work and a lot of looking at it in despair, it's done. I'll be mailing it off tomorrow to the ANG for their auction. I'm just really happy to have it finished. It even counts toward my ten project challenge, too. Five down, five to go.

Auction Piece ...

I now have four of the six rectangles around the center completely done, and since this picture, have finished the vegetable cart with the exception of the red outline and the white background - which I'm working on. Hopefully, I'll have this done in time! Only 17 more days to get it done.

Buttonholes and Auction Piece

I got the big rose done on the buttonhole and bargello piece. A small one too! This morning, after these pictures were taken last night, I did the final one. I'm getting closer to finishing. As for the auction piece, it's coming along. I have four weeks to finish it and I'm done with the watering can itself on its rectangle. Now to fill it in and move on to the next one. I really need to have it done soon.

Auction Piece Progress, Really!

Three sections done, four to go. I got the hat section done this week and am debating whether to outline the pink ribbon or overlay a matching colored satin ribbon over it to highlight it. Next up is the watering can. I started working on it yesterday. Still have to have this in the mail by March first, but I THINK I'll make the deadline. This is the only piece I make sure I do something on every single day.

Going to Have to Speed Up

So ... I got the second block done and reread my directions. I have to have this completed by March first! So I've increased my frequency of working on this. I'm almost done with the third block now. I think, if I work on it daily, I should get it done. The hat's completely stitched as of today and I have about half of the white around it done. I'm going to add a bow to the hat in Neon Rays so it shows better.

Progress on Needlepoint

I'm very happy to say I can see real progress on both of these. The bargello has all the outer borders done except for the last two sides of the elongated cross stitch on the very rim. On the auction piece, the flower box is almost done. I'll be doing more French knots today on the flowers. It gives a lot more dimensionality to the picture. Maybe by the end of the week I'll be filling in background on that rectangle.

Auction Piece, Again

Still working on that top left corner rectangle, but I'm -almost- done with it. I worked on it some more this afternoon and have about 100 stitches to put in it. Then I can go on to the geraniums!
