Paradigm Lost Update

It's update time again for Paradigm Lost. I haven't heard from Jo, my SAL mate, lately... I hope she is well... hers is really pretty too using the Indigo Ocean silk on white linen. Same pattern, totally different effect. Anyhow, this one motif is really quite large. It has been fun and a nice break to wander off to do the fleur de lis and little doo dads :-)

Thank you to everyone who left such nice feedback about Kingdom Sampler! You stitchers are so motivating and wonderful!!

A few asked what will replace it - two things will - An Emblem of Love with Carissa (not blogging any longer) and Karen V., as well as Violet and Lace Sampler with Katrina :-) And, of course, my long list of other WIPS too!
Daylily: Femme De Joie (with an unkind visitor on it - my blog is full of bugs lately, isn't it??)

New DVD Release Tuesday: Scary Movie 4 and RV :-)

Stitched on today: Paradigm Lost

Your Paradigm Lost is moving along very nicely-what is the name of the fabric you are doing it on?

PL is looking awesome - great colour! :D And I've been loving all the flower piccies too ... even with all the 'bugs' ;)

Sue said...

I thought maybe you were purposely looking for flowers with bugs on them, but by your comment I guess not :>). Paradigm Lost is looking great. Gets prettier every time you post it.

PL is really stunning. I love all the little "do dads" too. And as always the flowers are beautiful, bugs and all. Ann.

Congrats on finishing Kingdom Sampler! Paradigm Lost is looking good, too.

Sorry about the unwanted garden visitor. I've had quite a few of those in my roses this year, so I understand completely.

Jenna said...

Wow, that is quite a large motif, indeed! Looking good, though. :) And sorry to see a Japanese beetle bugging your flowers. I can't stand those nasty things!

Paradigm lost looks wonderful! And congratulations to your Kingdom Sampler finish. It looks great!

(And I find the beetle in the picture actually quite pretty - but I suppose I would be annoyed by it in real life ;)

Paradigm is moving quickly! You're a speedy stitcher!

Is that a Japanese beetle? They are KILLING my roses. I had to resort to pesticide. Sad, but it's working. I now have some lovely blooms on my rose bushes.

I have an Iris question. What do you do after they've stopped blooming? Mine are all done and the bed is choked with weeds. You would cry I think if you saw it. I have an entire row of them along the garage that I can see from the kitchen and it's pretty disgraceful at the moment. But I don't know what to do! Are you supposed to cut them back or dig them up and split them? I need a gardener!

Lovely Carol! I just posted a pic of mine :) I'm also using the Konini thread for an exchange gift and just love it. I still love the Indigo Ocean too though.

The two birds in PL remind me of the double eagle symbol of Russian monarchy - very interesting!!
