My new project

As I mentioned in the previous post, I have started another project for myself, and I'm hoping to finish it before I get back to model stitching for Karen. Last year, I did some stitching on a project for Judy Odell, who does amazing finishing work on her pieces. The project is called Shelley's Jewelry Box, and here is the finished piece:

In return for doing this stitching for Judy, she will be doing the finishing on the box I stitch; this is very exciting to me, because my finishing skills leave much to be desired! So, I finally decided what I would like to stitch on my box--Nora Corbett's Pretty Little Things. Here is my start after a few days:

I'm looking forward to seeing this grow, as I'm just picking motifs as I stitch, depending on where they fit in the best. I'm also going through my stash of embellishments, looking for sparklies to enhance the finish!

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
