Garden Verses 5/21/18

While I'm not thrilled about how her hand looks, I am NOT going to rip it out to rechart.

Progress continues and I'm hoping to finish in the next couple of weeks.

Garden Verses 5/14/18

I made lots of progress on Garden Verses over the weekend.  The balustrade and railing are complete.  All the upper right corner needs is the metallic border but I want to do the upper left border first to make sure they match up.

I started on the papers in the lady's lap last night and hope to finish those tonight so I can move up to her top half!

A pineapple and rotation

This is my progress on Hawaii since my last post.  I finished the rhodes stitches in the pineapple while waiting for a track meet to start and that's as far as I got.  I just couldn't do any more for now.  I do love how the berries (or whatever they are) in the leaves turned out though!

Garden Verses was still sitting on the coffee table patiently waiting when I put Hawaii away so she went back on the qsnaps.  I put almost 1000 stitches into the balustrade yesterday so I would call it a win.  I'm hoping to get to the railing in the next couple of nights so I can move back over and hopefully work towards finishing this one this month.

Hawaii part 1

Last night, I finally finished part 1 of Chatelaine's Hawaiian Mandala.
That is a big center!  All the open black parts are for beads/cubes/bicones.  This will sparkle when I'm done!!  Hawaii is staying out for a bit.  I'm excited to move onto the pineapples of part 2.

Hawaii 4/23/18

Saturday night, I completed the top half of part 1 of Hawaiian Mandala.  This is so pretty!

Then I flipped it all over in the qsnap and started working on the other side.  This is my progress as of last night.

It's been a busy week and I almost forgot to post an update.

This is where I was Sunday.

Hawaii 4/9/18

Still making progress...this was yesterday afternoon when I had to move my qsnaps.

And this was the end of the evening.  All those empty spaces in the blue are for beads!
