Started Something New

I still have not finished Celtic Noel.  My motivation to do any work on her has dwindled to almost nothing.  I have done some beading, but it's come to a standstill because.....just because.  However, I have been stitching.  For my last post of the year, I have some stitching progress on Crystal Symphony by Mirabilia to show.  The first image is nicely lighted, the second one is not lighted, and the third image is a detail shot of the chandelier.

Now for patterns! I decided to go all out this time with the Christmas dragons.  Gives you all a nice head start for next year ;).

I believe that is it for now.  Hope you all had a Merry Christmas, and have a Happy New Year!! Happy Stitching!

Almost Done With Celtic Noel

I'm almost done with Celtic Noel.  I just have to find the scrolls of the scroll frame I have and put it on so I can do the beading....which I hear could take 16-18 hours.  Looking forward to doing it...kind of, lol.  Anyway, I have pictures of it without the back-stitching and with the back-stitching. I took a couple detail shots, as well.

That's about it for me, stitching wise.  Again, I didn't find anyone who completed any of my patterns, so on to more patterns. I added a hatchling for those not "adventurous" enough to make a large dragon.

That is it for me....except my birthday is SUNDAY, so, if you wish, you may wish me a "Happy Birthday" on Sunday.  Just saying ;).  Happy Stitching!!

Another Celtic Noel WIP

Not much stitching has been going on lately what with work and life, but I have managed to get some stitching in.  Here is the progress on Celtic Noel.  It is very slow going.  I'll be honest and say that part of the procrastination is due, in part, to me not wanting to use the metallic thread.

No new finished pieces made from others this time....I think(?).  On to the patterns: MORE DRAGONS!!!

I will do my best to update a little more often. No guarantees, what with it being Christmas and all, but I will do what I can.  This would go by so much faster if life didn't keep getting in the way.  Oh, well.  Until next time....Happy Stitching!!
