I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

The 2017 List - Part 2

Today's featured project is one we haven't seen for a while here...

Some of you will recognize
Copper Illumination by Kay Stanis.

This is my challenge piece for my 
ANG (American Needlepoint Guild) chapter.
It needs to be completed by the end of June,
or I will be $10 poorer.

This is where I left off.
It's not really a large piece, but
the blackwork section on the left is "random,"
the large flowers on the bottom 
are all beads with purl purl leaves,
there's more goldwork on the sprig
of flowers in the upper left,
and there is a small piece of copper sheeting
that needs to be shaped into
that tulip design you see in the model.
($10 won't break me.)

This piece is still on the list because
if it's not finished this year,
I'm afraid it never will be.

Thanks for stopping by.
See you tomorrow!

That looks lovely and sounds complicated. I hope you do finish it.

Don't give up your $10 just yet; it's still early January. We'll be rooting for you!

Julie said...

Something a little different, very nice.

Linda said...

What a need design.


Beth said...

Beautiful, Pst.

Carol said...

Good luck with this, Pat! I'm sure you will indeed finish it--and finish it beautifully :)

Minnie said...

Looking through your last couple of post I have no doubt you will finish this piece just as beautifully as the others. I wish I could FFO as many pieces as you do.

It's beautiful, i'd love to watch your progress on this!
