squares in progress

Tonight I hoped to be a little further along in my bedtime stitching, but practicing my chunky 6-ply satin stitch took longer than expected when I tried to fashion a shaded flower. I liked Jill's idea of letting her flower overlap the edges of the square, so I tried it too. Don't yet know what else I'll put in the green square. And apologies for the late night photography lighting.

Although I'll be out of town until early next week, I'm hoping to have a little late night hotel stitching time. :)

Stunning! I love it. Thanks so much for agreeing to stitch along. And for being such a great friend.

Wow your work is amazing! Very, very elegant :) I just learned how to french knot and have used it on a bag I am embellishing but I did not use it on the ice cream cones all though I was tempted. Thank you for the sweet comments :) Have a great trip!
