Sporadic posting is not to my liking

It means there has not been much stitching.   Lots of other things going on around here.  I did get my first chapter of Amy Bunger's new book.  Very exciting.


Full of helpful hints, tips and diagrams.    The first chapter was about 50pp and there will be five more chapters in 2015.  amybunger.com


Red Magi from Heartstrings
In between events I have been basketweaving the background of this dashing fellow.  What's left to do for this set?





Camel which is huge

Still with the bad lighting...

Painted Pony Heart Angel
I don't know why this girl is so hard to photograph.  Finished the red stitches on the skirt and the bodice.  Back doing Rhodes Hearts on the ones I had to pull.

Progress on my Painted Pony Heart Angel

Too bright with the lighting
The lighting was too bright but you get the overall effect.  You may also notice that some of the hearts are gone.  They are coming out even though I tied them off very well.   I may try a spot of glue on them...
