I am tantilizingly close to finishing the Second Bookmark. That confetti stitching takes forever. The Second Bookmark is a bit longer than the first one.
I found some pearl cotton to do the border weaving in. It was expensive but it is hard to find overdyed pearl cotton.
I got nearly two more small motifs done on Mute But Not Silent.
I tried some overdyed thread on the border of the Stitching Chair Necessaire. You can't really tell in this photo but the greens go together fine. I like it and I may sprinkle a few little pink buds in it too.
Next stop on the casket design is to trace with a pen the flowery design and find an "A" that I like that fits in the center. I am thinking of just trying out some embroidery on 40 ct. linen to see how it looks. I prefer cross stitch but I'm willing to give this a try. We get the templates for the casket tomorrow.
