A Small Finish and More Progress

First the finish, a scissor chatelaine I made for mom. Mostly a black and white design with the only other color being added on the circular beads on the scissor tail on the bottom. This one was a bit of trial and error as I couldn't find the same beads I had used on mine for the whole thing so I've had to substitute a few different things in to make it work.

Second we have the progress on the Red Hat Lady. This, sadly, is the best of 6 photos I took of her, I can't seem to get the fabulous effect of the dark over dyed thread to show no matter what I do. Next time I will have to try a scan and see if it will show up that way, the effect is quite cool. The thread is one of Soy Lusters "Shadows" colors so its got variation of the color within the strand to give the effect of shading, add to that the fact that I can't get 2 strands that are the same and I'm stitching with 2 strands and its making a rather unusual effect.

And I just couldn't resist last night, I had to start Mojave. I think the colors in it are fabulous and I want to make sure to keep up with the series so its been mounted onto stretcher bars and I'm working on the border, I should have enough progress by Monday to post.


  1. Ooooh, I like the underside of the hat. Yummy! And I'm glad that you made a start on Mojave. It looks like a really neat design. :) And the scissors chatelaine that you made for your mom is beautiful!
