Update on Italian Garden, and this month's UFO

November was not a good month, I did a lot of stitching though. If you want to know the backstory visit my blog. At least I managed to get rid of another UFO in the process. There was less left to do than I thought, plus it was good for me to stitch. Liz Turner Diehl's 17th Century Italian Garden is DONE! I added a close-up of the center section cause I love how it turned out, and the couched rings as well. There was supposed to be couched twisted braid in the rectangles above and below the rings (where now you see pink/lavender flowers). I just could NOT get that braid to fit in the figure-8 small spaces, so I "punted" as it were. Shush, don't tell!



This month of December I got out another UFO, Fanta Cat's Dragon Feathers Afghan.
I finished the two top blocks over the weekend, and I have 8 blocks left on the right side until this is also finished...wish me luck!

Love the afghan. Where did you find a dark one? I have a project brewing in my mind, but it would look best on a dark Afghan.

Thanks all! I had my LNS order me the black Anne cloth afghan fabric. It shouldn't be hard to find some online Sea!

Congratulations! of your finish. I Love the Italian Garden -- it's gorgeous. And your dragon really pops on the dark fabric. I'll be beautiful when finished.
