Let's get to the fun stuff that a stitching blog is all about. I may not have been blogging but I have been stitching this summer. I finished a couple of old but beautiful projects. The first project is the completed Funky Rose by Terri Dryden. This project is from an ANG National Seminar a couple of years ago. I believe it might have been in Columbus. I am not sure how I am going to have this finished so right now it is hanging in a closet.
The Prague ornament was bought last year at the EGA Seminar. This is a hand painted ornament by Silver Needle. The picture does not do this ornament any justice. It is all done in Planet Earth silk, Accentuate, and Kreinik Metallic threads. I have bought Dupioni Silk in royal blue for finishing the back.
My poor Flamingo project is in need of an iron. This is a Teresa Layman project that was created for the EGA Seminar in Naples a couple of years ago. It is stitched with thousands of French and colonial knots. I find these projects very relaxing and I usually have one of Teresa's projects going. I am still working on kitting my next project from Teresa.
I am getting ready for a fun weekend and hopefully we will have warm weather. Tonight is a fund raiser for a local park and this weekend a friend from Singapore is in town and maybe a Cubs game. My final picture is what I view when I am at my outside nest. They middle flowers are about on their last leg but they have given me many hours of prettiness over the summer.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and endless hours of stitching.
