So you can see...

I have laid the two colors on the left side.  Since the outside border is looking yellow to some, I darkened the photo as well.  The inner thread is Waterlilies and the outer thread is Soie d Cristale.  The outside border is worked with 2 ply of the inner color.  The designs in the boxes is worked with either one or two ply of the outer color.  The "flowers" in the design is worked with two ply of Waterlilies Flamingo and a strand of Accentuate. Since this is spring, the designs should  look like flowers.

This is Mystery #3 by Loretta Spears called Spring Reflections.  I have already worked Summer, Fall and Winter so this is the last one in the series of four.  We have an 8 x 11 cut of 24 ct Congress, Waterlilies, Soie Critale, Au Ver a Soie Perlee, Accentuate and beads.  Off to staple this to some bars.

Santa's Back!

He is back on the frame!  I finished his beard, worked the star on the left and the moon in the center.  Next, he is worked down to the bottom of his sleeves.
