I am starting to see a lot more steady progress on this. I am almost done with the vegetations on the left-hand side, at least what's hanging over them. It's a lot of tedious filling in on the head, but last night, I got a good long stretch of black done while we watched Coal Miner's Daughter, one of my favorite movies.
I thought I'd post the difference between what it looked like two weeks ago, when I really started back in on it. Which is this:
And today. Not bad for two weeks work! When I look at it on a daily basis, I don't see major changes, but this is pretty dramatic here. Tai Shan has a back and a complete head now, LOL. Mei Xiang is a lot better looking. They're getting there, but I can't slow down now.
I am pretty proud of myself. I went to A.C Moore to get paint for one of my fair projects. I took along one of my stitching magazines, but I didn't kit anything up. Maybe it was the comfort of having the magazine there, and the knowledge I have whatever I need here at the house, but I'm tickled. I did, however, hit their 4th of July clearance. I got a table runner for the coffee table, a decorative shutter to hang my primitive ornaments on, and a cute little box for storage. All at 60% off. I paid $12 for all that stuff and my paint, and it had been A LOT more. I am going to cross my fingers that they will have a Halloween or fall shutter, because that would be pretty sweet to hang my Halloween ornies on til I have enough for a tree.It's time to keep my eye out for that. I'm leaving my patriotic things out til September 12th, then it's all getting rotated out for the fall and Halloween stuff
