In between organizing this weekend, I stitched.
Like a mug.
Mei Xiang and Tai Shan are getting a bit of a background now. More importantly, Mei Xiang is getting a face. The new photo is not the best, but I think you can see the difference. I'd like to get the background on this side stitched by Wednesday, but I'm not confident about that.
I don't really have high hopes for this piece if it's ready in time for the fair. It doesn't have a highly refined look. It doesn't look as hard as it is to stitch. My stitches are not as neatly formed as I may have wanted. Last year's lions are a far better executed project. But . . . this year, the victory is in completion. If I win anything, it will be a distinct pleasure. Perhaps I'm finally growing up.
Nah . . .
