Finished The Night

I just put the finishing touches on The Night piece I've been diligently working on for the past year, and I am very happy with how it came out.  The bead work was surprising easy, and the outlying stitches drove me bonkers, but she is done and I couldn't be more proud of myself.

Woo!! Like I said, I'm really happy with how well this turned out, even with the color differences of the bottom couple of inches.


That's it for this post. I'm probably not going to be posting for a little while. I recently made a life decision that will keep me from probably doing anything for a while.  Will give more details in next post, however far into the future that may be. I'm nervous and feel like I'm going to regret it in some way, but I know it has to be done in order to be happy.  In the meantime, Happy Stitching!!

Closer to Being Done...The Night WIP

Yet another The Night WIP.  It is really coming along and my hands are hurting trying to finish these bottom few inches.  However, since I now have no job, I have the time to finish it in a somewhat timely matter.  It sucks not having a job, but the fiance had the better paying job and we only have the one car, so that's how that went.  Anyway, my progress on this piece is coming along nicely.

I'm not overly crazy about the fact that the color of the bottom two inches of the dress don't quite match the top part, but I think it might be because of the time difference between stitching the top and bottom....that or the dye lots aren't quite the same, which is even more aggravating to think about.

Now for patterns.

I know I've done some doubles, so I apologize for that.  It's hard to keep track of them all after a while.  Anyway, Happy Easter and Happy Stitching!!
