I’ve been making some great progress, and I’ve been meaning to update the blog, but I’ve been so busy at work, I just haven’t had a chance.
I forgot my project at work last Friday, so I didn’t get to stitch at all this past weekend. Instead, I decided to work on the beading of Caprice, and I’m almost finished that. I think I’ll need one more evening, and she’ll be done.
Here’s my progress on the mystery gift:
I added a face, and I find that it helps bring her to life. My next direction is to start work on the wings.
I had a 50% coupon from Michael’s, so I headed over and checked out the price of an Ott light. It was ridiculously expensive even with the coupon!!! Price without coupon was $350 something. With the coupon, I was still looking at $125, which is more than I wanted to spend. I ended up buying a very cheap lamp (under $20) at Walmart. It has a clamp that attaches to surfaces and the neck can be adjusted. I set it up over my shoulder, and I’m happy with the outcome. It helped make the beading of Caprice easy. I can’t believe the light I was stitching under. How did I even manage that?
I set up an Instagram page for this blog. It’s regurgitated photos from here. Feel free to follow me at http://instagram.com/needlesflossapplesauce.
