Gay Ann is doing a Stitching Travel Journal. There are printable pages to make our own journal. On Page 1 we were to pick 10 projects that we want to work on. For Page 2 we are to choose the first 2 projects to work on, date started and how much left to do. Page 3 is for setting time goals and tracking our work. Hopefully I will get some pictures up here of what I am working on.
My first project is Lacquer Grapes by Betty Chen Louis. I started it over 15 years ago when I was pregnant with my youngest. I remember because Betty Chen Louis was concerned that I might have the baby at any moment even though he was not due for at least a month. And he made a nice shelf to rest the canvas on. I am about half done. I have some work done on most of the leaves. My goal is 30 minutes of stitching a day.

I am a member of Cyberpointers - an online ANG group. We did an online class in Soutache embroidery with Amee Runs with Scissors. I really enjoyed making the necklace. Putting it together, not so much. I am not good at the wirework parts of making jewelry. I hate making centered loops. I am glad I got to try this technique, but I think I will stick with seed beads.
