2013 UFO Challenge

Cyberstitchers is the online chapter of the EGA.  They are doing a UFO (UnFinished Object) challenge in 2013.  I added a page with the 4 UFOs I hope to complete in 2013 with a short summary of each one and a starting picture for reference.

I have done a bit of work on Elizabeth.  Her background step 2 is complete.  On to step 3 of the background.

Bead Soup Necklace

I got a bead soup in 2012.  I showed one necklace made from it in this post.

Bead Soup

I completed a 2nd necklace, but had some camera issues and never got a picture up on the blog.  I wore this for most of Christmas.  The clasp is based on Kate McKinnon's power puff.  The bottom part is strung on gold beading wire.  The side beads are peyote.  Pretty much everything came either from the Bead Soup or from stash.  I think I bought the bicones.

Veil complete

I did take out the left side of the brown line of the veil.  I have now completed the veil.  The next step is the background.  I am getting close to adding the beads.

If you want to compare the new line and the old line, the previous post is here.

Happy New Year

Yes, I am still here.  The last time I posted about Elizabeth was in early October.  And she only had one sleeve complete.  I have a picture from mid October with both sleeves complete.  And I have a current picture with the background tent stitch, her skirt, and the beginning of the veil.  I am trying to decide if I like the line of the veil or if I want to take out the top (brown) edge and redo it.  Comments are appreciated.
