I got to work on the beads and crystals on Medieval Town Mandala again tonight, since the password for the very final part (I can hardly believe it!!) comes out in a day or two. It was really kind of burdensome to bead the corner triangles near the center tonight. The entire outer edge of each of the four triangles is blue and gold beads. But... the delicas beads are slightly wider than two threads of belfast linen. So, the vertical sides of the triangles were a bit of a tight fit (that is putting it mildly). However, that is done now, and I am now on to making little beaded flowers around the next border - which I love doing. I look forward to getting back to them tomorrow night. I think the darker purple ones really look a lot like lavender - good job Martina! I don't think any photo I can take (and most certainly not this one) can show how sparkly MTM is getting now :-)
Daylily: Siloam Valentine
After tomorrow, I am off for four days as the US celebrates Labor Day. I had anticipated having Fridays off for the month of August, but it never really did work out that way when I got the notice about my record review. I spent the last two Fridays either catching up with paperwork at home or going to the office to finish my filing... this Friday, no work at all.
Stitched on today: Bordeaux Sampler ( at work - only a tiny bit, but still some...) and Medieval Town Mandala
