I told you I’d share my Bargello Roll progress this month. It’s not finished but I’m getting so close!
Here it was last Friday:
and after a diligent weekend and followed by getting the oil changed in my car this morning here we are today:
I keep forgetting, after all the silk is stitched, I have to go back and put the metallic thread in each of the spaces in each diamond shape. I thought it would be easier to manage that all in one go at the end rather than dealing with the metallic intermittently. I hope I’m doing that next week! I am aiming to finish the stitching before Christmas! Won’t this be a glorious FFO in January!
I also managed to do a tiny bit of couching on the Butterfly Brooch. I really need to give this one some concentrated effort. I enjoyed the afternoon I spent on it.
You’ve seen my finishes and starts and the Mill Hill cupcake so that’s rounds out my stitching for the month. I can’t believe it’s the end of the year!
