Thrown to the Lions!
So, today I worked on the lion's mane. I was resistant to try what Amy suggested as I am not a fan of reverse stitching! But, with Amy's encouragement I jumped right into the lion's den! She had me section off the mane and treat it three different ways to keep it from being TOO MUCH of anything. I have only work on step one and I can already see her vision coming to life.
Meanwhile, Laury is "cooking with gas" ( new expression I have learned) on her owl. It looks great and she loves all the Bargello work. Mary has many sections started and I live all the different textures that are jumping off the canvas. Pam's pig is so great~ the pig itself is looking good, but the accoutrement are going to be outstanding! The ladies with is in class are working on two projects I love also. They are going at breakneck speed! Great dinner and 'tinis at Automatic Slims ( did I fail to mention the blue Cheese laden potato crisps and the amazing Mac n cheese? Shame on me!). Amy and Jill joined us for dinner and were a delightful addition to our group! Back in the room, I am about to work on one of my From Russia with Love eggs....it is starting to get beautiful!! Whew, stitching drought is over ! Forward motion finally!
