Happy Dance: Czarina

After some concentrated stitching today (since yesterday was spent shopping because my sister was working on Friday), Czarina is done![Edited to answer Janine's comment: It worked much better to stitch the Amadeus and other non-metallic parts of the quadrant before putting in the Flair crescents. I did have to be careful not to snag any of the plies of floss used for the Amadeus with my laying tool, but that was less trouble than stitching around the bulky crescents!]

I think this is my favorite of the series so far! Thanks to Jim Wurth for a wonderful "color play" experience!

After almost a week off, I'm back to work, reality, and UFOs tomorrow!

Did you have any trouble stitching the crescents after the other stitches were in? Czarina is lovely. I'm working on Arcadia as a travel project right now so I get a little bit done every once in awhile. Janine

Hi there! This would, indeed, be the Karen E. who stitched with you at Golden Thread. How on earth did you track down my blog?
You're canvas work is gorgeous! I have some counted canvas reminding me that knitting is not the only thing I do with needles. There just aren't enough hours in the day to do all the needlework I want to.

It really looks wonderful. Just started working on mine a few days ago. I will be starting the Jessicas sometimes today.

It is always such an adventure each time I work on one of Jim's ornaments as they are so much fun and different from each others and at the same time keeping some of the same characteristics.
