Stash and an almost finish ...

I got these in the mail Sat: some stash I bought from Kali. LOADS o' Mira's and the cutest bee needleroll. I believe I've seen this one stitched up but it was so cute. And honestly, can you ever have enough Mira's?? :o) Thank you EVER so much Kali!!

And this is the ... THING ... I've been working on for the last 1.5 wks. I started out with such high hopes. I mean, it's a very straightforward chart, small, cute, and heck, I'm practically a professional now but dayuuuum. I am having some serious issues with this particular stitch. BUT, I still love how it looks so I just gotta finish it and I'm almost there anyway. I was going to use it as a PIF but the big problem I'm having is getting my stitches to lay correctly. Anyway, here it is. All DMC on a random Silkweaver 32 ct Reflections something or other. :o)

The grapes are looking great :) And have fun with those Mira's, I was seriously considering framing the charts since I had so many there was no way I was going to stitch them all LOL

Hi M, great stash and the grapes are really pretty. Sometimes those small and quick can be hard and long-LOL

Your grapes are beautiful! And I'm very jealous because of the great stash you got! Keep plugging away at the grapes! Isn't it odd how sometimes there's a piece that you just can't seem to do right. That's happens to me a good bit! lol

Often the simplest designs give us the biggest headache and then the most rewarding result :)
Lover your new stash! That bee needleroll is gorgeous!
