ArtPrize Count Down - day 2

Today was a rain day at work so I had extra time to do a little more sewing. Got it all ironed out and edges sewn and delivered to Art Express for framing.

Not much stitching done today but I did get the first batch of 2"x 2" cards ordered. Headed off to see the Giants play the Padres tonight!

ArtPrize Count Down - day 10

This is the frame that I have chosen for the piece. It has a little band of texture that brings out the other deep grays in the piece. Not sure about the white mat yet. Started adding some light mocha brown to the mix.

ArtPrize Count Down - days 16-15

It has been a family filled week leading up to my sister's wedding this coming Saturday. My cousin Angie lives on her sailboat in Richmond and we got to help sail her boat across the bay to Coyote Point. Sailed by Alcatraz, Angel Island, Treasure Island and got to sail under the Bay Bridge. Took the BART back to the city. Got a lot of stitching done during the sail and on the BART ride back to the city!

Way behind on publishing my progress, but have extremely good excuses. Went to Las Vegas last weekend for my little sister's bachelorette. Currently in San Francisco for her wedding next Saturday. Have been stitching like mad on the flights out here.
