As you know, I belong to a group that stitches on Saturday mornings. We started several years ago, meeting and stitching for a couple of hours. We talk, laugh, drink coffee, and stitch. It is a great group of gals. Anyway, everyone is working on different projects right now. Some times, we all work on the same thing. Like, the topiary trees. Some are still finishing theirs, and most of them are totally different. When they are all done, I will see about posting a photo of them. This piece, I just finished, is by Kick Back and Stitch. It was worked on green 18 count canvas, and used overdyed Caron, Kreinik, Splendor and Very Velvet. I have put a piece of gold lame' behind it and tomorrow I will put it in a black box top. It is going to be a birthday present for someone who shall remain nameless at this point as she reads the blog! She might guess at this point, but will not know until her birthday!
I also finished the middle petal of Akela Tulip except for the stem and incremental bottom shading. I will do that tomorrow and post a photo then. I also am going to try and finish the third petal as well. This tulip is white, with pinkish, dark mauve shading, and I hope tomorrow's photo turns out better so you can tell that.
