WIPocalypse update

It might not show but I've done quite a bit of the beading at the top border, in the letters SUMMER and two of the motifs on the left.  I also stitched the line of back stitching around the whole design. The beads are slow, not just the stitching of them on as I like to do a cross stitch to make sure they are secure but threading the beading needle!!LOL

And for my Quakers and Quilts  I have stitched the last quilt block after a lot of frogging.. I had allowed two stitches between the blocks and only one was required... grrrrrr

But it is coming along.. and this with my Christmas ornie and various sewn pieces is my work for May.
I hope to complete Summer Celtic Lady in the not too distance future altho' I have a quilt to make before the end of August  so still a busy time.
Happy stitching all

She is coming along very nicely! I can see it getting finished soon.
I myself have already "kitted up" for the 'Autumn" lady - will start her just as soon as I finish one of the projects in my rotation.
Happy stitching!

She is stunning. I've never done any beading but I know it looks fabulous and worth the effort.
Have a lovely weekend.
