Well, it's time for an update on my big projects...

last time you saw "Lady of Summer" you couldn't really see too much...

Here is this week's picture... I am working on the shading of the dress ruffles.

It's a lot harder than you think -- believe me!!

And here's the Symmetry project (canvaswork) that I am currently stitching.

This is my latest work done on it--
I have some triangluar backstitching to do. But becuz I am uncertain of the stitch direction, it's been put on hold. I know that it's probably something very easy, but I don't want to screw it up. So I will wait till I can get with Sue (my mentor) and stitch it correctly.

I also had some time (imagine that) and stitched 2 ornies for the Ornie SAL that I am a part of. I TRIED to do punchneedle today and OMG!! I got fed up really fast with it. I got a Dimensions kit of a Christmas tree that could be turned into a pin or an ornie, real simple. Well my punchneedle tool kept making HUGE holes in the fabric and the thread wasn't looping right. I got fed up with it and just stitching it in satin stitches instead. It's really cute and I even finished it into an ornie this evening. I made cording with the leftover threads - which there was plenty. So it was a productive day all around.
Hope that you are having a great week -- it's almost over!!
Keep Stitching,
Cameo
