New Year Wishes and Progress

My New Year Resolution to support.
(Stitched in 2016. Feel free to share in social media of your choice.) 

My hand dyed palette to stitch with. Dyeing wool for a new project is one of my favorite steps.

Work on another corner begins.

I have taken this corner to a different decorative level than the earlier stitching has reached. The challenge now is to bring everything to the same level of decorative fun.
Happy New Year!

Two Days In A Row!

Can you believe I am blogging two days in a row?!

Ruthie, Joseph and Rocketland are very close to complete. It was a good stitching day!

Map Progress

I have been working on the map. I began with the river. The river begins in the Golden Rule Mountains, flows down through the Village and then divides. One branch flows through Bubbledom.

Here is a close-up of the river flowing through Bubbledom.

The other branch of the river flows pass the StairPalace into the River of Stars.

This morning I started stitching Ruthie.

What's Stitching Now

I am still finalizing plans for casket 3. Meanwhile I have two other projects to work on. 
The first is this piece about accentuating the positive. It was a rug hooking pattern from way back when. I adapted it to my family, the affirmative portion of the drawing. I drew this out and started stitching over a year ago.
  


This is how far I am as of this last weekend. It doesn't get picked up often but it is getting done slowly.


For a while I considered putting a map of my World of Possibilities on the back panel of casket 3. It was too much information in a small space.


So I decided to do a separate embroidery of the map. I did all of the drawing and design work for this on my IPad Pro. It was fun to work at one scale then print it out to the size I want to stitch it.


Here are the two designs so you can get a sense of the scale. I plan to stitch the map in wool. I have missed working in wool.
