More Progress on Monument Valley


Thank you for your comments to this piece I have appreciated them. I am barely over half way through it now. It's almost too big for my scanner so next week I'll probably be using my Digital Camera. It's going better than what it was for awhile but I still say if I get to do another John Clayton piece (and I hope I do) I will use evenweave the quarter stitches will be easier. I'm not real happy with the way this one is turning out only because I think it looks sloppy. Hopefully once it made into a pillow it'll look better.

My niece and her husband flew into Grand Rapids today (at least I think they are there). Michelle will be here a week and Scott has to go back to OR on Monday. Tonight they will spend at Michelle's sister's outside of GR and come to town tomorrow. Also my nephew and his fiancee are coming in from Chicago. We're having a family get together tomorrow down by Lake Michigan (weather cooperating)Otherwise we'll go to another niece's house. We're looking forward to seeing the kids again. For Michelle and Bryan it will be first time seeing their baby niece. Addison is 5 weeks old now. Can't wait to see her tomorrow and see how she's grown and changed. She's probably getting more personality to her now.

Our weather had been cool now it's getting into the 80's and muggy. Stormy too, yesterday we had storms off and on all day, and cleared out by evening. Today it looks like they will be coming soon.

Well until next time Happy Stitching.

That looks great! The colors are really nice and I am sure it will be a beautiful, much appreciated pillow. Congrats on the progress.

Wow...I am in awe. That piece is gorgeous already. I can't wait to see it finished.

So...are you done yet? LOL! ;-)

Oh very funny Lori. No not done yet but 3/4 of way done. Maybe the start of next week (June 23) it'll get done. That's my goal June 23 or 24. Thanks for all your comments, gives me encouragement to keep going on it.
