Theme-tas-stitch: Opulent October

I'm only a day late this month too, so that might be a record lately. :) 

Check out Kerry's fantastic blog for more details and join in! 

This month I didn't get as much stitching on bling-related projects as planned, but I have a few to show. 

 I had a new start on Covered Bridge:
and got to here so far:

Dragon in a circle on 14 pt sparkly gold aida - still trying to find the source of this one :)

I'm shoe-horning in the Lakeside Needlecraft Specialty Stitches SAL because I managed to finish part 3:
 and part 4!

I'm stitching this 1 over 1 with Chromatic Alchemy threads on 28ct Realgar. Part 3 took a while because of the woven fan stitch, and I really enjoyed part 4. I'm not sure what part 5 will bring, whether it will be a central stitch or the 4 corners. I'm looking forward to Friday to find out. 

I hope you all had a very opulent October!

Happy Stitching!

  4. Your speciality stitches look amazing, Tiffany! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a covered bridge ..... in real life that is ..... I think I have seen one in an old black and white film though!
