Back in the swing

We are back from our trip to Michigan and the Fireworks were a hit! We had a great time with everyone and a fairly easy ride up and back. Now I am back to stitching. I am taking the Perfume Bottle by Sharon G on the next trip to CT in October so I need to get cracking on this one. I finished all of the gold running stitch in the Kreinik #8 002. I then started on the bottom of the bottle on the right side. I am doing basket weave stitch in Splendor with the darkest value in color S960. I originally planned and started doing Alicia lace, but it did not look right with all the gold, so I took it out. I then added the middle value using S1133 but only got a few of those stitches in. I may do the stopper in the Alicia lace, but I will have to wait and see.

This is really pretty!! I'm glad you're back - I've missed watching you stitch in my morning routine.

Gosh, this is pretty! The stitching really brings this rather plain canvas to life doesn't it? I hope the Alicia Lace works for the stopper. It is a very pretty stitch so I hope it is perfect for this pretty canvas.

And as Judy said, welcome back. We missed you.
