A day late this week! With good reason though. Yesterday was DH and I’s 13th wedding anniversary! So, he took the day off from work, and my blog was not on my mind lol. We had a great day, and an amazing dinner at my favorite restaurant. We ate wayyyy too much, but it was worth every bite.
So. Much. Progress. This week. I am so VERY glad to say…. The background, is DONE!! Yayyyyyy!! So, right now I am working on the overlay stitches which I was dreading, for good reason, it is in the skirt, there is certain stitches that get the iridescent filament stitched over it. And of course, one it’s hard to see (I’m actually finding working in indirect light is better because it’s easier to see the white stitches I’m working over since there are so many light colors), but the other big problem is that I have to work with very short lengths of this filament because it frays, separates, snaps, tangles, etc if I cut it too long. So, that is very frustrating to me, but I’d say I’m about a third of the way through it so I should be done in a day or so.
Two pictures for you today. One is a close up, that kind of shows where the overlay stitching has been done. I was trying to get a shot that would show it sparkle, but it’s hard to do. The other is a full show to show, no more blank background staring at me!!
