A bit of Bling!

I fell like I have left Bling in the back porch for a while. So I asked her to forgive me and what does she do???? Yup she made me do a bit of frogging just to get even. I'm not sure the mistake was made the last time I stitched on her. But we are even now. I won't leave her that long again.
The JD Album of stitches is sooooo much fun to do and pretty tricky as well. It does take a bit of concentration but look at the results...I LOVE IT!
This photo is a bit fuzzy because I wanted to get up close so you can see the sparkels in row 2.
There is NO cross stitch in this this is the Mosiac stitch ...hmmmm different but pretty.
Ann and I are working on the black 32ct... the rest of the ladies are working on neutral shades and some on a larger count!
They are all beautiful. Ann will be posting there progresses on her blog as we meet every 2 weeks to enable each other.

I hope you all have a good week and take care. Thank you for your lovely comments.
Stitch with happy fingers...see you soon.

Bling is looking good, too bad he got mad at you and made you frog. LOL. That stitching on black looks wayyyyy to hard. It is very pretty.

Wow Beatrice, beautiful! It really stands out on the black. Must be a bit hard on your eyes though.

Bling is looking great. Dragons ALWAYS get their own back lol.

Your JD album is coming along well. It must be fun working on some specialty stitches. At least it makes for something different and challenging.

Bling is becoming more beautiful every time I see him. And the black piece is stunning. But you're a whole lot braver than I am.

Unusual pieces, Beatrice, esp. the dark sampler. Oh my goodness, my eyes start to hurt when I even look at all that gorgeous stitching on such dark fabric...

Hi Beatrice! My you have been busy stitching away while I was away. I love your ornament finishes and Bling is coming along so nicely. I think frogging is getting off lightly if a dragon is mad at you. LOL!

Hugs ~

Glad to see bling is out again! Wow your book of stitches is looking great. I've at least put mine into a binder... but then... my name isn't Beatrice ;-)

Great start on your Stitching Album! I'll look forwards to watching your progress.

So nice to see Bling out again, she's such a pretty piece. Sorry the frogs came to visit though, how frustrating. Album of stitches is looking beautiful. The stitching is so striking against the black fabric.
