More Photos

Another shot of my Lilies. They've really been spectacular this year, and and have opened in a colour sequence. Just as one colour is dying off, another starts to open. Unfortunately, these seem to be the last of them. :(


Stitching Update:
As promised, this time with photos...
Fantasy Triptych is what I've been focusing on lately, and it has just grown by leaps and bounds. May I present to you the start of the rocks under the castle?



And a shot of the full progress so far. I am so sick of greens right now, but there are many more in the rocks, so I'm not done with them yet. I debated stitching on across the bottom and finishing up with the trees all together, but decided I wanted the change. Besides, there's not much point in doing the backstitching until I can do all of it for the trees, and since they extend up into the rocks...


Next up is the receipt for all the floss from my floss fairying! It was a fun photo to take, especially since I know how much it will be appreciated. Remember all my readers out there, I'm always happy to buy and mail!



Okay, so there's one last photo from my garden. I was playing around with working on my macro shots again...



Also, in answer to Jan's question, I haven't started getting my blog links together yet, I've been too busy stitching. At the same time, I haven't had a single person ask to be on it! Please, leave me a comment and I'll be more than happy to link to your blog!

Are you kidding? Put me on your links list.

Also, I have a question Re: stitching. Do you use one of those scroll do-dads to hold your fabric and what do you use to help keep your spot on the pattern?

...yes, I'm having a hard time. The fabric won't stay tight in the little circle deal-ie, and everytime I look away to make a couple of stitches, I loose my place on the pattern. What works for you? Do you have suggestions?

Also, I stitched a declorative doily for my daughter...I'm not a great stitcher...I wondering, could you look at it and tell me what you think of it?
