Spring Cameo


Here she is! My first page is complete. 1 down, 24 to go. To be perfectly honest though, about 9 of those 24 are half pages or less. She is oval-shaped after all. I can't decided which way to go when I pick her up next though. To the left and fill in some more of the cameo? To the right and do her cheek and hair? Straight up to forehead and her eyebrows? Northeast to her hair and the beginning of the flowers? I only know I'm not going down to do her neck just yet. For some reason, that's kind of a creepy thought right now.....

I'm moving on to the next slot in my rotation, after the HAED SAL weekend. Next up is Part 2 of St. Pete!

I finally figured out why my Vikki Clayton silks haven't arrived yet. Even though she received my payment, she never got the order itself! PayPal's fault. It was still sitting in my shopping cart. Vikki is a sweetheart though and we got it all straightened out in about 5 minutes.

It's pink silks. I want to do the Ink Circles Breast Cancer Ribbon mandala as a biscornu for my Mamaw, who was recently diagnosed. But I want to use silks, not the Carrie's Creations that it's charted with. I'm a silk slut, of course I have to use silk!

Most recent stash acquisition happened yesterday. Lori told me about the matroishka doll pattern in the latest issue of The World of Cross Stitching, so I set off in search of the issue. I don't have a local source, so I ended up buying it from a lady on eBay. It's an adorable pattern! Very bright and Russian. I like it a lot.
