I’m still stitching along on my BBD Where My Heart Blooms. I’m much happier with the silks than I originally was. I think the Sister Scarlet and I have come to terms. You can see I’ve filled in my windows and have completed the darker color of the house fill in. The rest of the house fill in is done in a lighter color. I’ll be glad when I can get to the green on this piece. I think it will give it a lot of life.
After getting to a good stopping point on WMHB on Friday, I decided to pick up ATS and work on that the rest of the weekend. ATS was good to me this time. On Saturday evening, Eric and I watched the Opening Ceremony from the Olympics (yes I know…) and I stitched on my cherubim. Cute, aren’t they? I love their little red drapes. I finished them up and then decided I should probably go back and outline my angel’s wings before I forgot about it. I got it about half done and decided I hated it. Eric assured me that it really needed the outline, so I went ahead and finished it. Once I stepped back from it, I could see what Eric meant. So, the outline stays…
On Sunday, while recovering from the fact that it SNOWED on Saturday night (in March, in Texas), Eric and I sat down to watch the Closing Ceremony that evening. And ATS came out again. I figured I was having good luck with it, so I might as well carry on.
I worked on the two stars above the angel. I was able to finish the left one, but still have the center pattern to fill in on the right one. There are gaps at the bottom of the stars where the pikes overlap them. I’m stitching this on 40ct Elegant Bean and I am just in love with this fabric. It’s really beautiful! One of these days, I should probably get back to working on my border. But, it’s too much fun to stitch on the motifs right now. I’m really looking forward to getting to stitch on this some more next weekend.
I am grateful for a relaxing weekend and domino tattoos.
