I pulled Dorothy Walpole out a couple of weeks ago and FINALLY got some stitching done. I even remembered to take pictures before I went to the next section, but didn't have time to download the photos and post before I went back to work, so I'm going to share them today.
I finished the Flame Stitch section:
Dorothy WalpoleAnd the strawberry band below;
And last night started the gorgeous flower band. Just a few flowers outlined for now, but I am planning on sitting on the couch, cat in lap, Downton Abbey on the DVD, and stitching this afternoon with a cup of mocha. What bliss!!
The silks for A Parrot, A Leopard, A Lion came in last week - aren't the colors gorgeous?
I am going to start the outlining on PLL this week. I am using the AVAS silks and 40 ct Antique White Newcastle linen. My mother is having knee surgery this summer and I need to have a "coloring between the lines" piece to work on in the doctor's office, hospital, etc. So Dorothy may have to take a vacation this summer (unless I can get her finished in the next month or so. . .hmmmm??) but she'll be back.
I have kept up with both blogs, although I haven't posted in a while. I love seeing everyone's progress. I hope to maintain my stitching momentum while it's too hot to knit.
Love to all,
