Working Away

I have been working away on the impressionist's painting project and Lady Catherine's slipper.  I reached the far side of the painting and want start working my way from left to right filling in the stitches.  This is kind of like a jigsaw puzzle.

I'm putting in the gold heavy chain stitch on Lady Catherine's slipper.  The slipper isn't exactly symmetrical so that is bugging me.  But hey, you can tell it is hand stitched.  The photo of the slipper shows a very nice even stitching.  I'm hoping that by the time I do the black stem stitch outline around the gold, it will look more even than it looks now.  I have to use a magnifying glass to make sure I am picking up (actually, going under) the right threads on each stitch.

I finished stitching the Erica Michael's scissors fob.  Here it is all done:

This afternoon is the end of the year party for the mentored kids.  Last time I will see Dylan until next year.
I have gotten in 10,000 steps for four days in a row.  That is amazing.  I've almost lost ten pounds.  That is amazing too.  Actually it is more like a miracle.

  1. Congratulations on the weight loss. 10,000 steps a day is a lot of walking. Perhaps you don't have enough time left for stitching LOL
