"Feast" Update

Gentle Friends the weekend by the Bay was laid back, sunny and breezy.  After our usual errand running around and shopping I spent the last couple of days stitching away......  and here's the result.....

...... the house uses three "blueish" flosses - "Uniform Blue", "Blue Corn" and "Tin Roof" - The left side is actually made up of two different flosses, although there is not much difference in the dyed floss - it really doesn't matter.  I am loving the "blue" colours and enjoying the "fill" stitching.  Since this piece is coming to and end sooner rather than later I have hauled out two projects to get a start on.... a Christmas piece and a Hallowe'en piece.  I have the linen and floss ready to go for both - so a new start on something is imminent.

I love the colors in the fruit bowl.

I'm starting to feel like a broken record (hope you're old enough to remember records!), but I absolutely love this piece, Edgar. I think my favorite part today is the bowl the fruits are sitting in. It is so subtle and the colors are awesome. The whole piece is gorgeous!

Such a busy piece and so colourful.

This is coming along very nicely. I really like the blue. It makes the roof, windows, and shutters really "pop".

I can't believe how fast you stitch!!

I'm looking forward to seeing what your next projects will be :)
