It has been a mad few weeks at home, home improvements put a stop to any stitching while I went from this ...
Pictures still left to be hung, but it's getting there.
Have managed to get the frame back out and have done a little more work on Autumn Shell Box. Last time I posted I had done this work on the large shell. I decided I didn't like all the different colours of the small maple leaves.
So out they came and I've re-stitched them all in the same purple as the foundation, but at different angles to the foundation to get a variation in colour.
I left one black maple in and I've really like how this has worked. Next job lots of short stitch holding to keep the foundation in place.
