Are you still watching???
Here are some pictures I promised from my last post.
This picture is my finished band on the current rotation of the EGA RR. I adapted a band from the SAL from Papillon Creations. I think my band turned out nicely. I don't too much like the previous band but that is my own personal opinion. Hopefully mine will tie in that one and whatever the future holds for it.
Next up is a little pattern I did by Tournicoton out of the Gift of Stitching magazine. I have always admired this designers patterns. I love the use of color and stitches to show depth and texture. As I was stitching this, I hated it. I think it was because I used 5000 count fabric for it LOL, ok, not really, but it was really small. I didn't enjoy it. Perhaps I will try another pattern in the future and have a better fabric choice.
Lastly is my picture of my Queen of Freedom, home from the hospital. I know this isn't the greatest picture. I never professed to be a photographer, amateur or otherwise. I put it up on my mantle and then decided it was too heavy to take it down to try for a better picture. The mantle was the only place in my house I could find to put this. It is really big. It is about 3 inches from my ceiling. I live in a very small house so big doesn't really fit. Anyway, I love it. I love the mats on it, I love the frame, I love everything about it really. I know you can't see the frame real well but the design is small airy leaves...think fern. I thought they looked museummy (I know that isn't a word), which reminded me of Washington D. C., which reminded me of government, which reminded me of the flag and freedom. LOL, I know, I know.
Anyway, so I have gotten a little accomplished in the new year. Next up is to finish my project for the EGA Seminar, then I am getting my Mira November Fairy back out and work on her.
Happy Stitching, till next time.
