Here and there

I worked the left borders down to the knee, did more basketweave on the legs, and started the
costume feathers on the left side.  Each of these still has a ways to go, so I will work some of each are every day.

Long Legs

Jubilee has some loooonnnnng legs!  These are all going to be done in basketweave.  Pull up a chair and some wine....this may take a couple of days!

More body suit

I should probably call this the costume!  Anyway, I finished all the white stitching and have come back and added beads in the holes of the stitches.

The Bodysuit

I have started the body suit.  I am working in and around the spray of feathers that is on the hip and have almost step one done!  More to come!

Other stitch guides

I just finished 3 more stitch guides for another client.  The first one is by Painted Pony, and is the Sandcastles & Seashells angel,  canvas 996EE.  You can see the canvas here:

The next is a Patty Paints and it is the ABC Schoolhouse, C14 and you can see it here:'s.htm

The last one is also a Patty Paints and it is the Princess Sleeping with crown, C31 and
is at the same site above.

They are all cute and I can't wait to see how they progress!

Jubilee is wearing very shiny and fancy gloves.  Her bracelets will come later as beads
will catch my fibers.

It has taken me all day to fix what some one with too much time on their hands did to the email account.  All of the old mail, saved mail, and contacts were deleted.  After changing the password a multitude of times, I had to call.  Some things have been recovered, but not all.  All of the email was blocked which I figured out about an hour ago and email was returned with a note saying I was not receiving mail.  It is finally fixed.  Apologies if I sent you a financial request, and if I have not answered an email you sent today--I did not get it.

More borders

I have moved further down on the right border today.  There are four rows of borders on the design and I am stitching some as I go so as not to have to do days of borders!  I am going to work on the gloves next!

Friday, October 18, 2013


The Chandelier earrings are done in beads and crystals!  The choker is all beads!  The weight of the jewelry will help her hold that head dress in place!  Time to work on the right side border.

Beads and more

The headband for the headdress is all beaded!  The arms and chest are also stitched!  Moving down!

Just one more

Just one more stitching session should finish the head dress.  The center is done and I have started down the left side.....plotting what to do next!

Monday, October 14, 2013

Starting the center

I am working the center spray from left to right to pack the rows tight!  The head dress needs to be really full!

Sunday, October 13, 2013

The right side

The right side is all filled in!  I am going to work on the center spray next!

The border closeup

I work a little each day on the borders that are done in Kreinik.  This way, I am not dragging my hand over it while working it and also not having to do a marathon when all of the show girl is stitched.   I am almost down to the elbow on the left side of the canvas!

Feather progress

Continuing to add the feathers on the head dress.  They are white, white mixed with gray, and gray. 

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

More Feathers

I am now working out and around the head dress by adding in all of the feathers.  today, I started from the center plume out to the right.  You might guess that this will not be the only part that I will do.  I have lots more to come just on the head dress.

The Head dress

Starting the head dress piece by adding the feathers in and around her face.  I also stitched more on the left side border, adding the final woven part over the diagonals.

The other side

The three inner bands of the border are done to just past the headdress.  I have started the setup for the outermost border across the top laying in diagonals.

Thursday, October 3, 2013


There are four borders surrounding Jubilee.  I have started at the top and worked the inner three in Kreinik.

Getting organized

The threads et al I have ordered for Jubilee are here!  I have made my outline for stitches I plan to use and have finished stapling the canvas to the frame.  Pull up a chair, grab the popcorn, and get ready!

Another progress

I did more of the sky and then started the right muff!  Using Whisper, it will be fuzzy when I get it done!
