Heart and Flowers part 2

I wasn't going to share another post on this, but I did enough progress on it this weekend that I think I can :)

I've finished all the bullions and all the cut work areas. Switching between bullions and the cutwork really helped speed things up. All that's left now is to attach the pearl beads, but I think there might be some stitching left to finish the edges of the needle book. I will have to take a closer look at the instructions later. The fabric is really wrinkly since I stitched the bullions in hand.

I'm pretty confident I will be done with everything including finishing by next week. In other news, I got my kit for Alison Cole's cyber class. This class won't start until January 27.

There are still a few things I need to gather for the class, luckily I don't have to worry about ordering a pair of goldwork scissors and a mellor. I got those when I ordered the dupioni silks. So that was a good bit of luck :)


  1. Pretty! And have fun at Allison's class. I really loved her stumpwork book. I think it is the best one on the market right now.

  2. Beautiful little toolie set! I love blue and white. Look forward to seeing the finish!

  3. Very pretty and dainty--like the blue thread on white fabric.

  4. Very nice progress. That is going to make a beautiful set.

  5. Yes, you've done well there - and I bet you are full of anticipation about the class!

  6. You have so much patience with all those weevils. Oops I mean bullion stitches!
    The butterfly looks like a good project too.
