It Came!!!!

Behold my kit for The Queen’s Treasure Chest!

Quite a haul

I pre ordered this lot from Needlecraft Corner back in January. She had been waiting on the Glorianas, but it was worth the wait. And the mother of pearl pieces (thread winder, sorter & ruler) are so heavy! Now to decide what to start first the turtles or the treasure chest.

Now for some ATS updates.

a bit more
A smallish bit more done. I blame the sun.

fucking rice stitches
I will be more than happy not to do another rice stitch on 36 count for as long as I live.

this I like
All I did here were some pulled eyelets. I love how they crown the crown.

oooo spiffy!
But the moon! The moon is my favorite part of this update. It’s just regular cross stitches alternating with up right crosses, but the effect it gives is wonderful.

So that’s it for now, I’m headed out of town to The Baby Shower. Wish me luck. Pretty much my entire female family will be there. *shudder* If all goes well I’ll be home by 9pm Sunday night and it’ll feel like I’ve been gone for the weekend. If it doesn’t… I’m sure its going to seem a lot longer.

    Your ATS is looking so stunning. So stunning a tiny molecule would think of stitching it myself (totally not my style, however). Love the updates in the meantime!

    Have fun at the baby shower. Right.

    LOL

    ATS is looking gorgeous and I’m jealous, as usual. I was thinking of using beads on the crowns, but I don’t think they’ll go because this just isn’t a blingy piece. Sigh. That moon is rockin’.
