I have a partial finish. YAY!!!!

Gay Parasol from The Silver Lining. Done on 25ct 1 over 1. I have to change some colors since I can’t use blended colors while stitching 1 over 1.

A very very late one.. sorry….

But HEY an update is an update πŸ™‚

At First Sight… missing 1 color… and getting into her hair ornament.




Second one, Iris, mostly neglected, but still able toΒ squeezeΒ in some stitches..




And these are Mini Mandala’s from Chatelaine that I’ve finished some times ago and just figured it out on how to “use”it.


Loaded with threads for At First Sight:


Last but not least… a new start.. again πŸ™‚

Zomerboeket in het groen from Jan Houtman. I am using several different stitches on this one.

Here is the progress of Iris.
I stitch it on 30ct Black Florentia from Passione Ricamo.
Surprisingly the rayon thread is not that difficult to handle, they are slippery but they don’t create static or make your hands rough like silk.

I only stitch this piece on day light, the problem is that the rayon is so shiny that if I use my OTT light then my eyes get tired easily. DH jokingly said that I might need to stitch with a ray-ban sunglasses πŸ™‚

Due to some technical problems, I can only scan my stitching and the picture does not do justice to the shiny rayon.
