It has been very hot and humid here in Brisbane for the last few weeks and I haven't picked up my stitching. We don't have air-conditioning and I am resisting getting it. The weather is only nasty and unbearable for a few weeks a year, although it feels like forever after the last few weeks.
I am updating my blog today because it is COOLER and WET today. I am going to stitch all afternoon and hopefully some evenings this coming week. Here is where I was at before the hot weather.
Living with Charm Finished
I finished this a few weeks ago and have just taken a photo.
It was done on 28ct Laguna opalescent with WDW and GAST threads.
Rose Garden Mandala
Here is my progress until mid January. I love working with the silk threads that came in this kit. I am using Q-snaps to hold this piece as I am doing it. The pattern is from The Gift of Stitching online magazine (Issue 44) and it is stitched on 32 count white linen.
I have started my leopard, but I am still on the black as you can see. I have gridded this with sewing thread so I am removing it before I get to it. I am doing this on scroll rods on my floor frame. It is the biggest piece I have ever started and is for my son.
