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!
