So...this is the big one I'm working on now. This is Sweet Nectar, it's a piece I started as a gift for my Mom. I still hope to finish it for her...we'll see! I started this in October 2015 when she was about to have surgery for her leg. Gee that sounds like such a long time ago. It's time I get this finished!! I would say I'm a little more than half way finished. I got a lot done yesterday, finishing up the big hummingbird, and more of the outlining on the flowers and some of the background of the plate. I'll show before and after so you can see what I've been able to accomplish.
Here are a few close ups, this pattern is so involved, it takes a lot of time to go just a short way in the middle of all these flowers and with the hummingbird.
This week I also worked on the Serenity Prayer that Katie gave me. I'm hoping to finish this up soon. It shouldn't be long now!! The fabric isn't that "pink", it's more of a cream. It's so hard to get a good picture in my house!! LOL
It's hermitting weekend this weekend. I'm hoping my guys will chill this weekend and let me stitch. Knowing them like I do, I will probably be out galavanting....my guys do like to keep busy!!
And now...for my friends who have been encouraging me to come out and play...I will soon! There has been a lot on my mind, last year was pretty intense, and for now I just need a little more time to sort out my thoughts and feelings. I won't be hiding away forever, I just need some processing time. Thanks for giving me the space I need!
