I put a few more hours into Mystery IX tonight. Martina has us stitching a lot with the Silken Perle Size 5, but says the clumpiness will be abated a bit after the project is ironed.... OK.... we'll see :-) Still not done, still going. I am not sure if I can get this finished tomorrow, it all depends on how our day goes.... There is a bit more ornamentation to go atop each of the chards in the corners, and then those blue objects on each side are said to be red cabbages (no red in them), and they look pretty quick to do. We'll see... I would love to be able to start Part 4 of Medieval Town Mandala on Monday.
Here is Mike and I at the Christmas celebration at my brother's house this afternoon. Odd angle - my SIL was sitting in a chair when she took it :-) I did get some other photos and may sort through them to share soon too.
My framed pieces did come back from the framer today - Celtic Band Sampler, The Marriage of Minds and Garden Bounty - but I was so busy with watching the two football games, and then also working on Mystery IX that I did not yet take photos of them. I will try to do that tomorrow. They came out great :-)
New England Patriots 28, Jacksonville Jaguars 3... a good start to the post season, so I am cautiously optimistic again this year (to be overconfident sure would be foolish) - loved the game! And loved the Redskins game - congrats to them and their fans too :-)
