Watch out ... a stitching update.

I've decided to take a break from editing, typing, printing, layout, drawing, etc of my book and show ya'll an update on what I have been stitching ... Villa Mira lately ... here is the last pic I posted (from July 30th!!) with the dress almost completely finished.
And here is what I have as of today ... if you can get past the wrinkled fabric. ;-)

And can I just say "WOW" to my new all-in-one?! Whadda difference from the old one that blew up.

And can I also just point out the hazards of blindly following the instructions. }:-\ See the purple below her ear? I questioned whether or not to just do what it said ... "Maybe it's a special flower or something?". Pssht. Frog away my lady ... frog away.

Here's a coupla things I started: A biscornu front on Silkweaver somethingorother 20 ct with Soie Cristale Silks by Caron; and a Halloween scissor fob I made ... twice. 1st is the tiny one (with a new dollar next to it for scale) that I finished and am not quite sure what I think, and then I decided to try 2/2 on the same fabric. I decided I didn't like it so big so it's still sitting there.


And that's all I can show as the other things I've been working on are PIF gifts. (Aren't ya'll glad you were sitting down for that comment?! ;o)

Sorry I'm so bad on posting lately, I'm so wrapped up in this danged book I can't see much else. I hope ya'll understand, and thanks for the well wishes ladies!!

Wow, major progress on Villa, she looks wonderful. Love the other projects-especially the biscornu front. The fob is so tiny-but adorable. It's nice to see a post from you!

Your progress on Mira's is always outstanding, and this is no exception! Can't wait to see when your book is coming out - I *always* had interesting cab drivers in Portland, and I'd love to hear their side of the story!
