100 Details -- Days 11, 12 and 13

Well, I've returned from a beautiful vacation to the beach where I swam in the ocean with my four nieces and my son most of every day. In between swimming, crabbing and holding a baby, I did have some time to stitch. So today, I have for you details for Days 11, 12 and 13. I really enjoyed that little oyster stitch on Day 11! It's the little pink "bud" in my picture.

I am very behind on my blog reading so I'm eager to see all of the eye candy of my compadres who are stitching along on this 100 days.

Here's Day 12.
I used a Madeira rayon thread for the straight stitches and you can see how the rayon thread "spread" to fill in the whole area. A very different look from Sharon's sample.

Here's Day 13. This one was just fun, fun, fun. Off to unpack and do laundry (and, maybe stitch a bit if I'm lucky...)

Until you girls came along, I never thought to bead inside of a lace motif (how obvious!) so now I have to scurry around and find something to use on my piece. Pretty piece! Do you have a full picture to show how the piece looks?

Ahh, Debra. That's how we grow so scurry away and find something, quick before the next detail comes along! I don't have a full picture of the piece yet...tee hee hee...

I rustled up some trims and tomorrow I will play with painting or dyeing them. I'll post. In the meantime, I have my first block done (as far as I will go until the other blocks join in) & as you say, it is very Happy!

I'm just visiting tonight. Everything is sooo lovely. But this one is my favorite and I'd like to try it out myself. I'm still a newbie at this, so it'll be a real challenge!
