More Quick Updates

Margaret Bendig
Plum Blossom Kimono
24 ct grey congress cloth
Various called-for silks

Here is what I have accomplished after my first-ever needlepoint class this past weekend! I know it doesn't look like much got done. But I learned a lot about technique (which I sorely needed). And I feel very confident to move on. To see what this is going to look like when finished see below-

Jardin Prive SAL
Sampler aux Bouquets
30 ct natural linen
DMC threads

I decided to replace the orange threads in the letters to more of a magenta color-I like it much better.

Blackbird Designs
2008 Mystery Sampler
30 ct R & R Highland Mist
Called for WDW & GAST threads

Hope all is well with you. I am managing to keep up on my blog reading and really enjoying the Ann Grant samplers plus much more!

Pretty progress pics, Teresa, and so many of them. Love them all, and I'm doing the jardin prive too!
The kimona will be fun to watch take shape :)

WOW, They look great

Nancy said...

Such beautiful projects! I especially love the blue flowers on the Jardin Prive and your choice of color for the letters is perfect!

Deb said...

Just love your needlepoint project! I have seen that one before at my local store and thought it was quite striking. I love needlepoint because it offers so much more than cross stitch does. You've done very well for your first class.

Margaret said...

Beautiful work on both pieces! That kimono is really gorgeous!

Sue said...

Oh, I love all your stitching.

Karen said...

Ohhh...your projects are so pretty. Love your SAL piece...don't know how much longer I can resist this one.

Tatkis said...

Good luck with your processes! Kimono needlework would be a beautiful one!

That kimono will be fantastic - it looks like lots of fun too. Great going on the WIPs :-)

Christine said...

Great progress on your WIPs, the kimono is going to be stunning

Blu said...

Lovely start on the kimono! Looks like it'll be a lot of fun.
The magenta colour looks good.

Carolyn NC said...

They're both beautiful! Love that SAL!

Jackie said...

Oh I think that Kimono is going to be very beautiful. I like the Jardin Prive SAL you are working. I also love the BBD Mystery piece you are working on. I've started it but I am almost sure it has ended up at the bottom for now.
Thanks for sharing and your visit.
