The balloons are done! I love how cheerful they are, perfect for a child's room.
I have finished the backstitching everywhere, so there are only some more clouds at the top and then the measuring scale to stitch.This feels like finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I've been working exclusively on this project since December and it feels like it will never end, I can't wait to move onto something else.
Speaking of which, I am going away next week to spend some time with my family after some tough events. I know I'll have a lot of downtime so I'm taking some stitching with me; I needed something smallish as I am only taking cabin luggage, and finally decided on starting my first Nora Corbett chart, Lily of the Valley (my favorite flower and scent) from the Pixie Couture collection.
Here is a quick floss toss for eye-candy purposes:
Of course as always the fabric doesn't show well in pictures, it is actually a lovely Summer Skies 28ct Jobelan. I don't have the Kreinik and the beads yet, I'm hoping I'll be able to find them in France, and if not they'll just have to wait until I place my next Internet order.
