Second week.

Long Dog Bagatelle    
This is so cool...I think this is going to be fun to stitch ...BUT look at all of the Thread that is going in.
I was asked is it all white?  No.. the back ground is done with DMC 415....pale gray (.backstitch) Click photo for close-up.
40 skeins of white b5200 and 20 of 415.

The Seaside Kingdom

BEADS , Beads , Beads.   

 I decided to start adding the beads as I go ...I prefer not to do them all at once! And there are many in this piece as you know Mirabilia and beads go together.
B
I bought this new travel bag for my stitching projects. Of course green is my favorite colour and the B is a nice added touch.
Thank you for picking it up for me Bonnie!
So as you can see I'm stitching a bit more these days...I've cut back on computer (fb) time as my New Years Resolution...seem to be working.
I did a bit of sewing too but will wait a bit to show that off.
Have a great week and stitch with happy fingers!

Wow! That is a lot of white. And seeing your Seaside Kingdom makes me want to dig mine out again.

Wow, you have been stitching. See that Farmville was just too time consuming. I'm taking Bagatelle out tomorrow and will put some stitches in her on my home back to AZ on Friday.

Wow! That's a lot of white! And gray for that matter. It will be gorgeous when done. Love the bag too.

Your new project is stunningly beautiful, but boy, am I glad *you're* the one who's stitching it and not me :o)) All that white on that dark fabric! I will very happily watch your progress, though.
Good for you for spending less time at the computer!

Sorry... forgot to say that the Miribilia is beautiful too :o)

It's a beautiful piece but I'm not sure I could handle stitching all that white! I'll sit back and enjoy watching you!
Castles is coming along nicely too.
Love your new bag! It's got great handles.

Cathy said...

Both of your projects look great! I will keep checking back in to watch your progress.
