Back to Linda, by Orna Willis.
I'm making progress, slow but sure!
There's a LOT of Jessicas. The #8 pearl by Painter's Threads gave me trouble! What I had in my stash that is the perfect color is waaaay different than the new stuff I got. The new was not perfect for this piece, but I didn't have enough of the old. So I tried a couple of different ways of using these threads and, with the help of a friend, decided to alternate the new & the old threads.It works pretty well and I don't think I could have found anything better.
Once I finish the Jessicas, each one will get a stitch in the middle with a metallic. There will also be a lot of beads on this piece, so it won't get finished until my stash is unpacked!
