Progress Updates





The Blog Candy winner is in the post below - congrats Jules! I have a couple of stitching updates to share. My Spring Exchange piece at the Rotation Stitchers Board is in the mail, as is my "Mystery" exchange piece at the Robin's Nest.

I've also posted updates on Pyra, Alhambra and Watergarden. Pyra is entirely stitched out of seedbeads - one connects to the other with thread. It's not hard to do, but is time consuming. It's also a little tricky, as the pattern is in full colour without any symbols. In order to keep the lines straight, the pattern includes a template to isolate the current line of beads, but when you put the template over the pattern, it can be hard to distiguish between all of the different colours of beads. I think I've figured it out now, although there are a few fudges in the design.
