Almost On Time

The original title of this post was "Right On Time." I was quite chuffed! Unfortunately, when I looked at the calendar with more focus I realized it hadn't been turned to September. That means I am late with the Totally Useless Stitch A Long.


This is becoming a long running joke!

I have been plugging away at Finery of Nature. Slowly, I might add. Currently, I am working on the flowers and the border to the right of the dragonfly. The black fabric is getting easier (I'm making friends with it) and the more I do the more excited I get about the design. There is something about these jewel colors on the black fabric that enchants.


Now it is YOUR turn...we want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your September TUSAL post so we can come visit! If I hold a Totally Useless giveaway your comment will earn you an extra entry.

Wondering what a TUSAL is and why all these people are posting pictures of rubbish? Click here to learn more and join the fun!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Those bright, rich colors on black fabric are stunning – what a beautiful piece! Every time you post a progress pic I’m amazed all over again - black fabric – yikes!

My TUSAL post is HERE.

Sharon: First I want to say what a beautiful design you are stitching, I have only stitched on black once on a small piece it almost drove me nuts.
I want to tell you how sorry I am about not thanking you for the beautiful fob you sent me, I am so sorry the day it arrived was the day Mike was having triple bypass surgery, it was put aside and found today I am so ashamed.
I will be posting a photo tomorrow and how I am using it.
Thank-you it is lovely.

Black fabric really is worth the extra time it takes, the colours look amazing in this design.

You are really mastering the black fabric.

Love the colors against the black fabric. Stunning.

Love it!

Monica said...

Omigosh, you're still working away on this! Have I mentioned before that I have a partially sewn one in my basement. I started it in California, so prior to 2003!

The black fabric is a challenge. But you know, so, so worth it!
