A finish and a Summer Ball update

I meant to post yesterday, but it was a long day at work, and I was exhausted when I got home, so I didn't have the energy to post. Not that I'm complaining--it feels kinda good to know I worked 25 hours at my part time job since last Friday. The money at least feels good. We watched football all afternoon. My teams won this weekend. The Cowboys of course, my first and dearest love, and also the Ravens. I grew up in Redskins country, and was never a fan, but it feels so good, now that I live closer to Baltimore, to have a team worth being a fan of!


I finished Midnight just now. It took a bit longer than I expected, but I like him! I don't know if this huck towel feels finished, though. It needs some writing at the top or something. Or else I won't be using any more of these for these, and will use the ones with the thin band, and use the huck towels for something else.



And this is my progress on Summer Ball. It's slowly moving forward. The main girl's face is done now, and there is more floor, plus, let us not forget Seth Rogan's head, all the way over there on the right. I'll get it finished. One of these days . . .

You inspire me to tackle some huck towels. Do you really use yours?

Great stitching on everything! :-)

Summer Ball is looking great.

I use huck towels all the time and find that pieces look more "finished" if I add a little border to the design. Of course, I have always done square or rectangular designs on my towels so it has always been easy to add a simple checkerboard, zig-zag or parallel line border. But if you follow the arch of your design and simply outline it with stitches in three or more rows of "framing" colors with the outermost and innermost being a dark color and the row[s] in between picking up colors in the design ... it might work nicely for you. Of course, it does add stitching time to each piece but the result may be worth it.

The kitty is another cutie. And Summer Ball is such a beautiful design. I think I wouldn't be able to stitch anything else til I finished it.

Your kitty is very cute. And Summer Ball is coming along well too.

Cute finish :o)

Wow, that will be some piece when you finish it!

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
