As promised, the photos!

I promised some photos!

Stephanie had asked about my poor, long-suffering WIP, Summer Ball, by Sandy Littlejohns. I actually have not worked on it for a long time, but I think it's time to pull it out and work on it. This is where I left it a year or so ago (Updated: it was actually 2 years. Per a blog post from October, 2007, I was working on it then. I didn't realize the time had flown like it had. I am a dork)



And the horrible embarrassing Cocoa ornament. This is a freebie by Sanman Originals, from her website. I did it eons ago, but just finished. It's not a good job. NOT AT ALL. But it's done. I'll try better next time.

I don't think it is horrible! I think it is cute. I absolutely love the pattern I think I must go find it.:)

That Summer Ball is going to be beautiful. It definitely deserves some of your attention.

The ornament is really cute. It will look adorable hanging on a tree. The imperfections will slide into the background. Such pretty colors!

At the Ball looks like a great stitch. Look forward to seeing you progress on it.

Haha!! Don't blame me for adding another WIP to your stitching rotation. The funny thing is that I remember seeing Summer Ball on your blog and I had to have it, well it is now in my WIP!! Strange how that works. I guess I should take it out too...can't wait to see your progress!! Stephanie

Your WIP is looking great! Trust me, your orniment turned out much better than many I have tried that way!

Wow, your Summer Ball piece will be stunning when completed, Rachel...that is a lot of work! Could you take the San Man piece apart and just put it in a tiny frame? Just an idea...

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
