Here it is!
Not much new - just some black from working on Ferret Knot and the threads from Immaculate Hart.
|Two trays of bacon in the oven already, most of the other ingredients were in the fridge|
|This is the second time I've taken home this trophy! woot!|
Also, check out the pretty tile! I need to post about the kitchen update
|My little pigeons|
|The most delicious mushroom sauce, like, ever.|
|That's a fat half of fabric right there - Platinum Lugana - my favorite|
|Most of the stitchers there! Someone posted this photo on the FB recently, so I snagged it.|
|The finished piece from my stash. |
The Shame! The Horror! Or, at least, one initial too many.
|Such a tiny amount of fuzz for such a large amount of work.|
|Looks so much better no? I mean, correct initials, the ironing. Life is good.|
|I've always been amused at the neat little nest the pearl gets to sit in.|
|Stitched on platinum linen.|
|This shot cracks me up because the beaded area in the center looks so wonky from here. Hah.|
|I had already stitched this spot in 2005, so when I finished in early 2006, I didn't change it.|
After all, it was commemorating the GTG in 2005, so it felt apropos to keep it like that.
|This is really just to show off. The small hole was completely covered by the stitching, so it ended up being a non-issue. The large hole I managed to cut is actually only partially (maybe half?) covered by stitching, the rest of the damage (and repair work) is in a completely un-stitched area, but even I can't see it and I know where it is.|
|The whole piece. It's not very large, just a few inches across|
|Sorry for the not-quite-flat picture, they came rolled in a tube, and I'm trying to keep them safe until framing.|
