Stitchy Update

I have two finishes. Both are from the Oak Haven January SAL. I finished February and March.



Oak Haven January SAL
February

I changed the color layout just a bit. Just moved a couple around is all. I made one of the small hearts in Mill Hill beads and I satin stitched the inside of the middle heart.

This one I pretty much left the same. The only thing I did with this one was I did the face, hands, and feet over 1.

I've got a quick WIP going, but I can't show it. It is a gift for someone who reads my blog. :D I really hope they like it.


Tonight I did a bit of fabric dyeing. I got three pieces done. One is for a RR I am in and the others were for fun.



This is the one for my Round Robin. It is a two tone piece. The bottom is a light gray and the top layer is a blue-gray.



This was one I did for fun. It is another two-tone piece. The bottom one is light blue and the top tone is red. The blue doesn't show up too well on the scan though. :(



This was another fun piece. Single tone, just double dyed. I dyed it in gray and then re-wadded it and dyed it again.

Hope your eye is ok now and that the smoke didn't bother you too much.

Your stitching is lovely and your fabric dyeing looks great, just like the marbled fat quarters I buy for my patchwork.
