More Black Belt Stitching Wizard Stuff

Monday, July 07, 2008


I had a great evening of stitching (except for that 40 minute doze in my chair with stitching still in hand) tonight! I finished Create on the Double-Flips and got a fantastic start on Live! Its just a shame I've got to get up for work in the morning, otherwise I'd be pulling a late night for sure!

Here's the entire piece to date

I forgot to share with you last night the lovely gifts I received from my guests this weekend. I got the STUNNING Royal Doulton/Franklin Mint plate from Kathy. Its called The Dragon Master. It currently has a spot of honor on the top of the entertainment unit so I can look at it while I'm stitching.

I also got from Lynn these very yummy threads! Not only do they look good, their colour names are just as yummy like gumball and berries and cream.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll have two things to share with you : a happy dance for the Lizzie*Kate Double-Flips and a loss at the scales!

Your LK piece is looking great, everytime I see a wip picture of this I am very tempted to get mine out and start on it but I think I have enough wips at the moment. I love the plate and the threads.

That's a stunning looking plate. And yummy floss indeed.

Hi Dani,

Looks like you and the gals
had a wonderful weekend
gathering. Lots of laughs
and lots of stitching.

And they gave you some lovely gifts. That plate is incredible
and will be a great incentive
when working on a Dragon Dreams design. And those threads from Lynn are so pretty.

Your Lizzie Kate double flip-it
is looking fantastic! Can't
believe that you're almost done
with it. How big is this design?

It was cool seeing all your
Paradigms, and one Cirque, all
together in one picture. They
all look amazing together.

wow Dani, the double flip its are looking amazing. Best of luck for a loss and a HD today :)

Ruth said...

Ooooo, you scored big time! Do you think you'll be busy enough admiring your beautiful goodies that I could sneak in without you noticing and make off with that LK of yours? It's great! :)
