  1. this really is ever so pretty!

  2. This is beautiful and any stitches at all are great progress.

  3. Beautiful stitching! I really like that light brown shade.

  4. I think it is looking quite splendid and even one stitch is progress. I’m curious, how long does it take to do the fill work in one section of the big shell? It looks like a kind of chain stitch, so I’m thinking days….

    • It is chain stitch, and the bigger sections of the shell take more than one length of thread … and if I do something on the project, I usually do a full length of thread. So call it two days on the bigger sections … at 15 minutes or so per length of thread πŸ˜‰

      • That’s not quite as long as I was afraid it would be!

  5. Any progress is better than none and this is such a pretty project πŸ™‚

  6. Beautiful stitching

  7. So neat and tidy! Looking great so far πŸ™‚

  8. I know I say it every time, but I love this design. And since you are stitching in rayon, I think you are giving yourself far too much of a hard time!

  9. You’re getting there! You’re working in an incredibly labour-intensive process, and I think you have to allow yourself more time to show progress than other people not working the same way… It’s very beautiful, and will be an enviable piece when it’s done.

  10. Very lovely. Your stitches a beautiful.

  11. Still you are working on it. Every stitch is a progress!!!

  12. Beautiful

  13. all progress is good! I have problems getting good photos because of the light. if it’s raining, i can’t take it outside!
