I finished all the outlining with the Lacquered Jewels. Each petal and leaf is completed with the two strands. My tip for working with Lacquered Jewels comes from previous tangle issues. I take the new bundle, remove the paper tag with the number and set is aside. I then pull out an empty card from a Rainbow Gallery fiber. I snip the tied end, untwist the bundle and set it on two opposing points. I then wind the entire skein on the card. I tuck the color number into the back of the card and can easily pull the desired amounts off the card without tangling the rest of skein.
I actually finished this last night. Just as I was coming up to post the photo the power went out from all the snow! We received 11 .25 inches of snow since 3 p.m. yesterday. We were ready for it, and I read by kerosene lamp for a while and went to bed. The power came back on in the middle of the night. It is still snowing which is better than the sleet from a couple of hours ago.

Hi Pat,

Very pretty!

Hope you are staying safe and warm with your weather. We are only going to get about 4" from this snow storm as we are on the western edge.
