Okay, July's gone.

     Another month has flown by, and I'm still working on "Florentine Fancywork." I'm well into the next to the last area to be stitched before it's back to the border and the final backstitching.

     The area I've been working on is called "Little Hearts," and it's turning out quite pretty. This is a pattern I've been able to get into a rhythm on, so it's actually going quickly. I just haven't had much time for stitching.I like the alternating threads: Overture, Kreinik, Mandarin, and Neon Rays. Now that I look at a close-up, I see that I missed a small bit of green at the top and have some compensating still to do next to the startburst. Sigh.

     I've gotten an extension to the end of August, and I will finish on time!

     My work on "Stars for a New Millennium" is painfully slow. At the last meeting, at the end of July, I made very little progress, despite stitching for the entire time.

     At this rate, I'll still be working on this through 2011 and into 2012.



  1. I just recently found your blog and I'm really glad that I did. I'm working on Stars for the New Millenium too! I should post a pic on my next blog update. I've been away from needlepoint, but reading your blog has really sparked a huge interest again and I should pull Stars out. I'm about as far along as you.

  2. I'm glad you found the blog. You might be interested in checking out the chilly hollow needlepoint adventure (link in my blog list at right), where Jane is also stitching Stars in between her (first love) painted canvas projects. You definitely must get back to work on it! What's your blog?

  3. I like the colors of you Florentine fancywork, they are very lovely missing green or not
