More WIP pictures

I had time to take pictures this morning.

My progress on Shores. You can see the first of my changes to the chart in the words. I'm a little leery about how I'm working from all sides in, instead of center out. I always worry I've miscounted, but I can't just work on large blocks of color. I know it's on a Silkweaver fabric, but honestly don't remember what it was.


This is our wedding pillow, by M designs. I really am enjoying this and I think it will stitch up into a very unique momento of our day. I am glad that I didn't pick something fancy and hardanger-y to do; this is a lot less stressful than all that cutting and such, and, since I'm not really going for fancy and floaty and lacy with anything else in the wedding, I think this is just right. I'd like to find some knotwork buttons, so may head over to the fancy fabric store on the Pike to see if they can help me. But I've got a good start, I think!



I hope the weather is amazing where you are. We are in the midst of a heatwave. It was 80 here at 9PM last night. Not that I'm complaining. You don't have to shovel heat!

Is that the Celtic Knotwork heart? I know I have that in one of my binders. If I remember correctly it first appeared in a Celebrations magazine. I love the floss you are using ... are your attendants wearing those shades of blue?

Love the blues in your wedding pillow, Rachel! And you've made a wonderful start on Shores--very brave of you to start from all four corners--wow! My counting is not accurate enough to try that... Looking forward to seeing it all come together :)

You're making good time on your WIP's. I'm so glad you decided to work on Shores. Maybe I'll get mine out as well. Your wedding pillow will be such a nice momento of the day.

Both look good so far.

Shores looks awesome! I'd be scared to stitch it that way.

The pillow is going to be gorgeous :o)

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
