DLM first, since I've talked about it so much.
This part (part 8, holy crap, getting close now) is beautiful. I just love the colors together. Believe it or not, there are six (I counted them) SIX shades of orange in this part. Three shades of purple, one brown, and three blacks. (310, Anchor Marlitt, and PTB Black. I only used two of them, as I stated in an earlier blog entry. I wanted to use up some more of the Marlitt, and I also used the PTB (Petit Treasure Braid from Rainbow Gallery), but you can barely tell the difference. I do like sparkly things though, so it's all good. You can see my little bunny in the bottom part of the photo. I learned my lesson with the first corner ornie. I can't put the Q-snap too close to the center, or the bundled up fabby gets in the way of the stitching. So I put it further out on this one, and it was much, MUCH easier. Thank God for Q-snap huggies, and Christine Marie, lol.
And now, Beach Romance.
I had a little bit of trouble with her/him today. (I'm not sure if the project is female or male. I'm leaning towards female.) She had a bit of a problem in two places. At first, with the angle of the sun on the balcony (Yes, I DID put a cushion on the chair. NO, it DID'T help my poor, abused butt) I had trouble seeing the holes. That cleared up very quickly though, as it was pretty late in the day when I went out. Then I made a mistake when I started a new color. I put it in the wrong place. So I had to frog out about fifty stitches. No big deal, but I still didn't get as much done as I would have liked. Good progress, but not as good as it could have been. However, my butt is still hurting, so I'm done for the day. Maybe tomorrow it will feel better. Hopefully, lol. I hope you all enjoyed IHSW this weekend. Three cheers to Joyce of Random Ramblings for hosting. She does a great job, and we rarely thank her. So thanks, Joysze, and kudos on the IHSW growth spurt!! Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!
