I'm also at the point of hand stitching this piece. I haven't shown you yet. It's a new take on Bloom. It's 3x9 inches... vertical! I love the feel that cropping things differently creates. Here's some pretty close-ups of the work thus far.

Check this out. I was wandering aimlessly around a department store, looking for treasure to perk me up after a week of tending to sick me and sick children. (Do you ever do that?) I found it! Bernat decorative bundles of yarn fibres. It's a 'scarf making kit' at Zeller's... but I have other plans for these pretties.
|mmmm... couching, couching, and more couching : )|
No kidding! Zeller's for ten bucks each. Nice. There's a heck of a lot there! I'm impressed.
