Look Who Came Out of Hiding!

I have been stitching in fits and spurts this week... between coming home from the gym or going to Taekwon-Do (which I am proud to say I made it there three times again this week!).


Last night a project I started in 2006 ... really 2006??? It seems I also haven't worked on this piece since April of 2008. Really??? Well it came out of its little mesh bag and got worked on last night for a few hours.


Yes, folks Tour des Marques from The Silver Lining, stitched over one on 28ct. It really is a beautiful piece. I think I might alternate this piece with Art Deco Spirits when Todd is around.

WOW! It goes really super with this fabric. I hope you will continue with it as I would really love to see the finish of this one.

I love the name of your blog and now I know why you name your blog Black Belt Stitching Wizard. You can Taekwon-Do!

Great way to keep Todd of track and you get this great piece done too. CJ ok;-)

Wanda said...

Oh Dani! This piece is awesome! Yeah..I sort of agree...work on it some! I have one piece that I started over ten years ago and just can't finish it. If I even just outlined now, no one would know it's not the complete pattern. But actually do that? Heck no! Good for you for getting it out!

Nice to see Tour again. It will certainly keep Todd off track. It would be nice to see Art Deco Spirit again too. Maybe you will post to the Mira blog?
Looking forward to your visit Friday.

It's great to see this one again! Sadly I became frustrated with mine and ended up cutting it up. I hope to restart it sometime soon.

Tour is such a neat piece, I'm glad to see it coming out again. Loved seeing your finished RR too. What an awesome fantasy piece it worked up to be.
