IT'S FINISHED!


July was a productive month! I FINALLY, FINALLY finished stitching this piece taught by Tony Minieri at a Chicago ANG workshop three years ago. Still not happy with the clouds, but they're the best I could do.

In July I also finished the Heart-to-Heart design of the four red and gold dresses on black Congress cloth, a Christmas ornament, and put the finishing touches on two other projects.

Now I can get busy on a new piece called Ribbons of Hope, finish an ornament that's been in the works for a few months, and look for new projects. I'm declaring some UFO's NTBD's (never to be dones), which eases the guilt over what's left.

We just visited Chicago for the first time. What a beautiful reminder your stitching is!

For interestins skies - go see Anne Stradal's needle blending at The Caper Stitcher - it's amazing and simple. She "shades" the sky from dark at the top to light at the horizon on her lighthouses. Your work is looking good!!

LOL I'm tired right now - disregard the typo on "interesting." Also, Anne is The Cape Stitcher. I did a bad one on that too.
