Altered image

Starting my exhibition piece for our regional exhibition in October. The aim is to have the stitching finished before the end of may. This is my painted canvas and stitching to start. Hoping to have more texture before it is finished.

Busy Weekend

I have had a busy weekend with sewing and getting a few small projects finished for gifting later in the year. I have spent Sunday with a friend making her snappy bag and also finished one for mum. They contain a piece of embroidery which was done a couple of years ago. It was fun spending time with a friend and getting another project off my sewing room floor.
Judy and I are making a plan for some more beading days, which will also be doing a piece of peyote picture stitching. It is a nativity scene for a bauble so will be interesting to get finished.

Next piece of exciting news it's only six sleeps until Adele concert. Before that Stephanie and I will be going to see Much Ado About Nothing at the Pop-Up Globe. It will be so much fun as it is a while since I have seen Shakespeare performed. It will be fun.

Green beads done

All the outside border and green beads are done on my odyssey piece. When I count the days of stitching it's nearly a whole year. Shame that it has taken 18 years to get here but it should be framed by the time that anniversary comes around.
This long weekend has been stitching time as the weather is lousy. I have completed the rows of brown beads as well so stitching the last row of black beads on tonight. I have also finished the triangles at the bottom and all the French knots have been done.  
Last row of blacks beads to go.
