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.
