Quickly, more CQ & Stumpwork this time!

Hi, again, Everyone!
If you saw this post earlier, check it again!!!...I just figured out what I was doing wrong to make my pictures so blurry....and was able to correct it!  So the pics are much better
and show the stitches very well!!!!!!!
Olivia & Grace go off to camp tomorrow.  They are creating 'piles' of clothes on their made beds, that they want to take.  Actually, they are being quite I snuck off to blog-post!  :~)

Just wanted to show you the fruits of the last 2 nights labor!

 Mr. Bunny in his Gorgeous Ribbon-work Garden!

The stump-work bunny was a wee bit of a challenge...yikes!  I decided to give him a garden first because I was intimidated to stitch him.  As I was working with the silk, I was noodling on how to tackle him and what shape I really wanted him to take.  He really looks amazing, especially considering that he is just done in padded satin stitch!  Oh, and the dimensional ear is picot needle-weaving!

Daffodils, finished and with beads in the greens, finally!

Embellishment on the fan is under way!!

The embellishment is a bit intimidating to me.  Why?  Because the background stitches are so lovely and perfect, that my 'Needlepoint Psyche' tells me that the piece is done.  I need to think out-side of the box, like oh perhaps, a Crazy quilter!  Then let loose and start stitching!
All for now!
Happy Stitching!


  1. Hi Kelly,

  2. Hey Kelly,

    What a great piece, simply outstanding. I too would be interested in a long distance class. It would be fun and quite challenging.

  5. Love the daffodil basket, Kelly! It's difficult to pick a favorite section of this piece because you have done such a beautiful job stitching all of it. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  6. Looks great, Kelly! I can't wait to start on it!
