WIPs photos

I finally finished the Breast Cancer Ribbon Angel ... it took a total of 11 hours. I am amazed that such a small piece took so long to stitch. Granted I used blending filament for about a third of the design and that stuff is rather fussy, slowing one down ... but still. I figure it'll require another hour or so to affix the piece to it's backing and do the sewing finish. In any case, here's a picture of the stitching "finish".

And, while I am at it, here's a shot of the Pirate ornament, stitched but not yet assembled.

And a photogtraph of progress made on The Holly and Heart Sampler.
First, as last seen:

Then, with current progress ... yes, I am a very slow and meticulous stitcher [I frog less, that way] ... but this piece is alot of fun ... I've even started to like all the back-stitching :)

And, just because I still had some sage 32ct linen loaded on the Doodler frame that I have been using for my ornaments, I started another Imaginating, Inc. Cardinal ornament ... the last time I stitched this, I finished it as a pillow ornament ... this time I think I shall finish it as a flat ornament.

Later on this evening, I shall get back to the Holly and Heart Sampler. It is my plan to get in another solid two hours on that piece.

Great pix! The finish looks wonderful, and I love that Sweetheart tree WIP. I am starting to like her stuff, I just get intimidated by it.

Gorgeous stitching, Riona! :D Funny how those seemingly easy/quick projects wind up taking "forever", isn't it? LOL!
