Of a Tuesday

I finished the hem stitching on Mistress L.  Yeah!  It still needs the handkerchief linen on the back (to hide my messiness!).  So this sucker isn't really done-done.  I want to go by the quilt store and see if they have any options for hanging this up.

I got a kick out of Marilyn.  She is a faithful reader of this blog and always leaves a kind comment.  She thought my BAP might be ghosts.  That reminded me that I haven't shown the whole picture for a long time.  I'm stitching a John Singer Sargent painting called Carnation, Lily, Lily Rose.
I'm working on the top left corner and have a couple of lilies and a lantern done.


It would be a magnificent accomplishment to stitch this whole thing.
Yesterday's photo:
This is how much stitching can be accomplished in one evening.  Not much.
I finished putting in the blue lines on the front of Pioneer Girl.

I've run out of Claey's Root Beer Drops.  Horrors!  I'm off to Hobby Lobby to replenish my supply.

    It almost looked like the ghosts in this one.
