Part 3 of Mysterie; Part 3 of Quaker Star and July Ornie

Here is an update on Quaker Star. This shows progress through Part 3.

This is Debbie Draper's Mysterie, completed through Part 3. It is gorgeous in real life - the green is so rich looking. Both of these projects are from the Sticklounge group.

Here is my July ornament. This is the newest LHN All Dolled Up pattern - Peppermint. I used the recommended fibers, except the white is HDF Premium white - I could only fight with the stiff linen and the knotty cotton floss for so long - I threw in the towel, and started using silk. If only I could have switched to Lakeside Linen also, this project would be so much better (I am soooo spoiled.) This is my first attempt at finishing a flat ornament - I think a little practice is in order.
I have not been doing much stitching, but have resumed my stamping - taking classes and collecting stash - very little real crafting going on, but it's fun anyway.
Happy stitching! Margaret
