Alhambra Garden



One pic of just the WIP - one with Vanna. LOL

Katie just needed to be in that last pic, so I let her. :) I made some good progress on this one the last two weeks. Finished the triangle on the right and worked some more down on the yellow and brown lattice work. I *think* I *might* just be able to finish this piece before 2010 is out - certainly for fair next year!

I also started a new travel project - just two small monochromatic designs of ballet figurines that I'm stitching on a tote bag made of aida. It has been so long since I've stitched on aida - but at least it is easy and this will be a fun project to work on while watchingng Katie's dance classes. If you didn't already guess, the finished product will be a dance bag for her dance shoes. Maybe I'll show a pic next time I post, right now it is just sort of a blob.

Jenn, that is wonderful!

My parents are going to see Alhambra next spring. If they like it, I think I might stitch this for them as a gift. I didn't realize it was so beautiful!

It is looking amazing! The pic with Katie is actually helpful; I can now see it is much bigger than I was thinking.

I always forget how large that piece is. Having Katie in the picture provides some perspective. I think it's a great picture of her, too!
