I finished the far right petal with Silk Lame braid, Panache, Elegance and more beads!  Only two areas left!
I have enough of all most all of the supplies left for another one....anyone have this in their stash?

Another large petal

This one is larger than most of the others but the pattern went fairly quickly using Impressions, Flair, Kreinik and yet another kind of beads!

Around the petal turn

I added Frosty Rays and more beads--pale yellow around the turn of the petal.  Just a few more to go!

Here is an overall of the progress and I have stitched the "turn" on two petals.

Petal nine

This one has some Flair, perle, Sundance beads, and square crystals!  These are going so fast....Jane had asked the size of the canvas and it is an 11.5 square.  I bought mine along with guide and kit from Aristeia in California.

Another one done.

The very top middle petal is done and I have started the one on the left.....beads, glitz, shine....who could ask for more?

What fun!

Do click on the photo.....that way you can see the beads on petals one and two on the right.  The next petals I have started and am working on french knots!

Starting something new...........

White Camellia is by Melissa Shirley Designs which is an 11.5 square design on 14 count.  The stitch guide is by Beverly Churchill.  Thanks to Aristeia in Santa Monica, CA for getting the canvas so quickly and kitting the design.  Off to staple this one to the Evertites!  Click on the photo to get rid of the blogger imposed marks.

The finishing touches

I stitched the holly wreath and berries and then added the bow on the wreath.  The stocking is now done and I am off to finish up writing the stitch guide!

Monday, May 12, 2014

And that is the end of that!

All of the plaid is now stitched!  Sorry for the shadows but it is storming big time here and not great lighting right now!

A prince of a stag

Isn't he just a stately dude?  He is all stitched.  Just the holly wreath and a few more green squares to go!

Turning the heel

It is time to get back to the green at the bottom of the stocking.....While I love working on the stag, I still need to get a lot more of the green done at the bottom.  I turned the corner of the heel and have about 15 squares yet to do.....

A bit more

I finished the front leg, under belly and started down the back and the tail...another day or two and he will be stitched.

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Half of it

I got about half of the back done and will keep working across the rest of the front leg and belly next.

Monday, May 5, 2014

Well, duh

Spring is a busy time of year, and it apparently got me yesterday!  I was running wide open and forgot to post the photo of my progress!  I have both of the front legs done and have started moving across the back....
