Finally, I get some rest. I woke up feeling greatly refreshed yesterday and got back to work with a vengeance. In those last few days of blur I was lost in my choice of stitches so I wondered over to Pin Tangle Sharon B's wonderful blog. If you look in the right column there is a link to her Stitch Dictionary. I went over there trying to jog my memory since I couldn't think of a single stitch...and went away learning five or so new ones. I'm not done either. I think I will be stopping by often to this wonderful resource. Her blog is amazing showing several examples of her work. I hear she teaches great online classes too.
I finished the embroidery part of my mermaid bag! I have to admit it didn't go at all the way I planned, but I still like it quite a lot. I cant wait to finish making it into a bag and see how it looks then. I do like the water motif and plan to explore this further.
I also did quite a bit on another fairy shoe pincushion. I cant seem to find a good color choice for the pin cushion part of the first one and modified the pattern a little bit for the second one. This one has a lot more work to be done on it though. I really like the roses and black combination.
And guess what came in the mail? My gloves I have been waiting for! Now I can once again get to work on my paisley project!
My hands are very happy today *^_^*
