Black, Black, Black...


I got lots of the black done on Spike - I didn't even work on any of the other colors for a while. I have now, but it was after I took this pic. I'm hoping to show him off finished, soon :D

Here's my latest Bride's Tree ornie - this one was for May or June... the theme was 'Birds'. The next theme I'll be doing is 'Fish', but I haven't found any small fish design that I like yet.



And here's my start on the July-December SAL at HAED - 'SK Sunny' by Myka Jelina. Once again, she will be for my sister when she's done. She's much bigger than the Mermaid that I'm working on; wider and a whole lot taller.

I'm trying out gridding for the first time with her! I can't remember where I saw this style of gridding explained, but it's supposed to pull out very easily. I didn't have the nerve to actually mark the fabric with dressmaker's markers like some people do; her skin is all stitched with B5200 and with my luck it wouldn't fade and would show through forever. Here's what she'll look like done:
