Full Steam Ahead!

So this morning I hit the ground running, I finally feel like I have my energy back! I set right to work on 'Small World' and was determined to finish the rest of the stitching this morning. I am happy to say I did! I have a few sore fingers for it, but thats ok...finally at long last it's done!

After I finished the stitching, I started working on the frame. I think it's going to be exactly what I wanted. I'm quite happy with it so far. I see this piece being completed before the end of the week. *crosses fingers*

I also took a photo of the new dye piece I made for the leaf study. Some of you might remember that the piecce I did have for it was creased so badly I couldn't iron it out. I am MUCH happier with this new piece. It has a lot more blue in it than the previous piece and I think it will look better with that. I plan on starting the stitching on this sometime this week!

I am so happy that I'm finally feeling better. I felt like I was wandering in the desert for awhile LOL!

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

  3. Small world is a beautiful piece of art...I love the beauty of the eyes and their lashes...I love the puffed stars coming out of the clouds...the moon is a brilliant piece of embroidery AND the fact that all the suns rays have something different happening is a feast for the eyes. You should be very proud of this piece. It's absolutely great!
