The re-stitch continues - and some more Chihuly...

I finished as much as I will on my QFFRR and will get it in the mail tomorrow to Rowyn. here is a snap of how it looks now...

So here is is - I have used - HDF- Raisin Wine and Old Maid of the Soil for the wreath and initials - and they are the first and secondary colours. The little bit of grey is WDW Dolphin - probably my favorite WDW.... or at least in the top ten. I also changed the crown a bit to get some grey in there. i am going to hold off on the date until it comes back home.

I started on Carol's piece and got one medallion finished
- here is a snap -


I will probably get this finished up in the next day or so and then have it out to Rowyn next Tuesday. The is is on the the LHN RR - I have the design all picked out and the floss gathered up it is just the stitching to get done. Then this will also get sent to Rowyn as she very graciously offered Cheryl her stitching prowess to finish out the last square. So Rowyn will be getting three things in the next few weeks from me....

Here are today's Chihuly snaps....






This is a snap of the chandelier room pieces - so that you can get and idea of how large these pieces are I have included some other patrons in the picture....

It is hard to tell what this is...
it is a snap looking directly up under the green chandelier in the previous picture
- isn't it just the most bazaar looking thing??

Thos medallions are lovely. I really like the color choices.
I am not much into modern-style things, but glasswork is the one thing that I really appreciate in a modern style. What an amazing exhibit. Here in the land of "no culture what-so-ever" I really crave such things.

Oh, Edgar, thank you so much for sharing such great snaps of the exhibit! I have always wanted to see his work live and in person, but reading your commentary and seeing it through your eyes is a real treat! Love your stitchy-ness, as always!

Love the Chihuly photos! In January my husband and I went to a Chihuly exhibit at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh and absolutely loved it.

That big yellow chandelier? Phipps purchased one for desert room of the conservatory. It looks perfectly at home among the cactii!
