Tuesday stitching

Tonight at stitching group I worked on the Nancy Cucci piece.  I started by doing the first pass on the box on the bottom row, second in from the right.  First, the DMC pearl cotton is darned in and then the Kreinik #8 went in.  There is more on this pattern, but I skipped up to the center beaded boxes and started putting in the beads in the third box from the left, alternating pearl beads with crystal ones.  this box is about half done.  Pretty good progress for all the laughing we did tonight.  We somehow got started talking about weddings and bridesmaids dresses we had worn and it was downhill from there!  LOL

Actually, this kind of looks like a wedding dress, doesn't it?

I never would have thought to alternate bead colors this way. Very clever touch. This is coming right along, even if you did slack off stitching in favor of giggling last night.
