Last week on the left, this week on the right. You have to look close because I've only gotten outlining done. I feel like I've been outline stitching for a year and I'm still not done! Just in this section there are 3 colors of outlining. The corners of the frame have about 6 stitches of black and the rest is brown. Ugh.
It really does make a difference though, just look at the top of the sewing basket and the strawberry pincushion. I will have this section done by my next post (in 2 weeks). After this outlining is done I will be moving to the bottom left.
On the right is another piece that Ive' made. This is really the type of embroidery that I most love doing. I bought this as a kit and I'm pretty sure that I bought it in Woodland Hills, CA when I was working on an acquisition project there. We bought that company in 1999 and I worked there for almost a year. That's where I met my friend, Denise. I worked on this in the hotel and completed it in April 1999. I made it for my Mom and got a photo of it while I was at her house this past weekend.
My Aunt is home from the hospital and recovering very well! Thanks for all of your well wishes.
