I finished my bobbin lace phoenix! We had a weekend of Milanese class instruction and the added hours helped me to complete my 12th Milanese project. Hooray! I took a picture of it before I sent it off to the framers.
Here are recent pictures of my wedding overlay X-Stitch piece. I ran out of the dark chocolate sampler thread when I was in Washington. I stopped at the local X-Stitch store but their thread was way too dark so the contrast would be too different. (Typical for overdyed threads) When I got back to So Cal I went back to my local store here and they still had some of the same dye lot that I had originally used. (thank goodness!) So now I am back to work : )
