Found my way to the bottom....


I found my way to the bottom of Memories tonight. I am far from done... a little more of this white lace work with perle cotton and then I get to add some roses. And then, of course, add the embellishments. But that won't take me too much longer - then back to Spring Ride on Sundays, I think.

I finally finished my biscornu today for the HoE Biscornu Exchange - it is pretty colors on black jobelan, and neither Mike nor I could get a decent, focused photo of it today. I had the same problem with the Heartfelt biscornu on black linen a couple of weeks ago. Hmmm. I figure I will try one more time in morning light before work tomorrow, before I package it up and mail it off to its new home. I hope to get at least one decent photo of it before it goes.

Oh, and I got my confirmation letter yesterday for my classes at Celebration of Needlework in May. I was able to get into both classes that I wanted - excellent!!!

And... thank you all for your kind help with ST's Victorian Floral Needle Roll. The ebay seller has stepped up and is sending me a new chart in the AM. Sandie Cox Vanosdall, the designer, is out of charts, but is willing to help me out if I return the defective one - I will do that if the ebay one does not arrive. However, I received some lovely offers from my friends - thank you, dear ones! I appreciate you all :-)

Stitched on today: Finished biscornu for HoE Biscornu Exchange, and stitched on Memories

Just a beautiful project, Carol!

Nicole said...

Wow, Carol you are almost done! I have been working on it from the bottom up and I am up to band 9 now. Can't wait to see it finished! Thanks for the inspiration!! :)

Memories is simply beautiful Carol.

I love the box you made for Becky. This is one of my must stitches!

Barbara said...

VERY pretty, Carol! So glad the chart issue has been sorted out, too.

Vonna said...

LOOKING great Carol! You just buzz though stuff! Sort of like Nicole...she buzzes through stuff too and it makes me jealous :)

Nicola said...

That's looking so pretty Carol. I've stitched a few JN's myself and find the perle 8 a bit tedious to stitch with on 28ct although it looks great when it's done.

Great that you got in those classes, I bet they will be fun.

Congratulations on getting the Celebrations of Needlework classes that you wanted. I'm hoping to be able to attend the event in Louisville later in the year (as it is much closer to me than NH). I'm envious that you have such a world class event so close to home!

Memories will be done in no time! It's looking really nice.
