Garden Verses 2/19/18

I'm still working on Garden Verses.  I've been moving up from the bottom and got a big chunk of the pillar on the right done over the weekend.

Here's the whole thing since I needed to move the qsnaps.

And here's the rest of my progress yesterday.  I think I'm going back to the red to pull that up some more so I can move the qsnaps again.

Garden Verses 2/12/17

I completed a challenge for a Facebook group yesterday so I unclamped two sides and took a picture of Garden Verses.  She is coming along slowly but surely.  I've found the bottom right corner and started working my way back up.  I hope to finish all these flowers tonight so I can start either the purple of the dress that trails into the flowers or the column on the right side.

Here's progress as of last night.

Garden Verses 2/4/18

I'm still working on the skirt in Garden Verses.  But, I'm getting close to moving the qsnaps and moving to the columns!

Garden Verses update

When I picked Garden Verses back up, she looked like this.

After the weekend, I left her looking like this.  
While she's out this time, I would like to get the bottom half the chart done but that may be asking a lot.  At the rate I'm going, I may just get the dress filled in where I've already done some work.

Garden Verses

I didn't make as much progress this weekend as I wanted but it was more than I expected.

A finish!

The last time I worked on Irish Chain I had started the backstitched green vine.  This time, I decided I wanted a simpler work and the green vine and the yellow flowers, while pretty, were too much.  So I frogged the green.  This left me with a very simple, pretty quilt.  I don't know what I'm going to do with the rest of the Kreinik silks that came in this kit, but I'm sure there will be something, someday.

This is the picture from the kit.

and here is my finish.

Garden Verses is up next.

1.16.18 update

I'm still working on Polar Mandala.  When I quit for the day last night, I had completed 3056 stitches out of 28,900 stitches in part 1 which is only 10.57% completed **gasp**  

I think I'm going to give this one a break for a bit.  I brought Irish Chain and Mirabilia's Garden Verses back upstairs last night.  I think I'm going to pick out the green vines in the border since it looks too dense on 28 ct 1x1 and I think I like the simpler look without it.

We'll see how it goes.
