The Stitching is Done

This is the chicken for the Coq Au Pins by Twisted Oak Design.  Doesn't look like a chicken, does it?  I have enjoyed stitching it so much that I decided to do the rest of the pattern which includes a scissor's case, scissor's fob and a pin keep.  I am using threads that I dyed.  Hopefully I won't run out.

This is what I have been doing lately...picking strawberries.  I made three batches of freezer jelly and froze quite a bit.  The kids are tired of picking them which is ok as they are about done.  But boy, they sure enjoyed them with cake and ice cream! I am working on Elizabeth, but no real progress to show.  I do have some work done on another piece that I will post soon.

Elizabeth's Mask

Well, it has been a while since I last posted.  I redid a section of Elizabeth and then added the outlines.  I think any remaining lines on her face will receed with all the other stuff going around her.  Her ruff is going in next.  Hopefully I will be able to post more frequently, but it all depends on the weather and the amount of time I get to stitch!

I Never do Basketweave Quite Right

This is Elizabeth's mask.  Nothing exciting yet, but please notice the line on the left of her face, kind of under where her mouth goes...It is much more pronounced in person.  Does it bother me?  I am not sure.  The face is important and I may need to restitch that section.  I am not sure what I did wrong.  I was very tired and stressed when I did that section...Could that be it?
My boys will be on vacation and taking my camera so I probably won't post much till they get back.  Hopefully I will get some serious stitching time though.
