A UFO Invasion!

Hello everyone!  Hope everyone had a lovely week!  I got a little stitching done on Persephone but mostly worked on Deep Blue Sea.  I spent two nights in the Urgent Care with sick little boys so I got a lot of stitching done in the waiting rooms.  I'm still chugging away at Persephone.  She's slowly getting the rest of her tail.  I think once I'm past this part I'm cutting out, it will be faster because I can follow the chart instead of improvising as I go.

I got a quarter of the way through part two of Deep Blue Sea.  It's slow going because there is a lot of over one stitching in this part and I'm stitching on a 32 dark colored opalescent. 

Thanks to Deborah, I now have the petite silk lame so I'm filling in the gray curlyques.  They are VERY sparkly and the picture just doesn't do them justice.  And here's a close-up of my tiny over one starfish. 

Aren't they cute?  And only 12 more left to stitch!

My friend Jule is making me pull out a UFO and stitch on it once a month.  It is Shores of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings and I'm stitching it one over two on 40 ct linen.  She's just started this one so a group of us are going to meet once a month to work on this one or other UFOs. 

The fabric is not as yellow as it seems in the picture, I just had terrible lighting today.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but I substituted all of the NPI silks for overdyed cottons.  I really like the way it is coming out, but it is rather boring to stitch.  TTFN!


  1. Mermaid of the Pearls looks amazing so far!

  2. Pere is looking fab!

    Love your DBS!

    Good on you pulling out the UFO :D

  3. Your stitching is looking great.

  4. I like the little starfishies. Cute!
    Let's see how much progress you can make on Shores tomorrow. I'm almost done with block one. Woopwoop!
