Tossing Some More Confetti About


Now it's the left wing that has me counting out my confetti stitches ever so carefully.  The other wing took me a solid day to stitch  But I'll be able to devote at least two hours on Wednesday and again on Thursday to this so I may start my three day weekend with another wing completed and ready for back stitching.  We shall see.  This progress shot shows the completed and back stitched right wing, the back stitching of the robe and drape and hair - or at least as much as I could do without compromising the over one area of the face - and the first four confetti colors of the left wing.

At the rate I am going, I had better get my act together and order the braid and beads I will need for embellishing this piece.  I'll be at that stage by late October or early November at the very latest.  It would be a shame if the finish were delayed for want of the right materials.

I know I am at least a month. away from a finish but I am already beginning to feel a bit melancholy at the thought of not stitching my angel.  For the moment nothing in my WIP/UFO basket is calling to me and I am not sure what I shall pick up next.  Probably the old and new Thea Dueck Mystic pieces: the stitching pocket and accessories from the past retreat and the Christmas Sampler from this year's retreat.  I have gotten into the habit of doing one project at a time.  I wonder if that habit will stick once I am finished with the stocking.. There is also the possibility of starting a stocking for my granddaughter, Piper ... a Woodland Maiden to be a companion to the Woodland Angel.  But first I have to covert the colorway of the name and maiden's dress from blue to pink

Looks really great. You've had some good progress. Looking forward to seeing you and the stocking in a couple of weeks in Mystic.

Each time I see this one I see something very lovely about it, the little bunny looks so snuggly and comfy.

I have neglected visiting blog land the last couple of weeks so I am very impressed at the stitching you have done. This is such a beautiful stitching project and I look forward to seeing your finish.
