Almost a Deal Breaker

Hi there,

You all know what a "deal breaker" is...especially in needlepoint.  Sometimes there comes along a part of the project that you just can't get past and then it hits you - is this what makes me put it in the closet?  That's the deal breaker.   For me it's the Jessica stitch - or in Amy's case the "Heart Crescent" on the 4th apple. Which is like a super advanced Jessica.  I actually did stop there but in my defense, it was in order to go to Memphis for the Cookbook class and then home for surgery and out to LA.  Well,  here I am back home again and I thought, well ....I've come this far....let me tackle it again.

The first one took 3 hours - YUK.  As I recall I broke a needle.





Then, when we were in the Griffith Park Observatory we saw the Tesla coil and maybe that helped







So here's the second one - way easier.  It's right underneath the first one.  So I guess the key is not to give up.  And not to look too close.






Here's Y which as you know is the last letter in JULY so I am near the finish line.  There are a lot of beads in Y, but I like beading 😊




And my daughter's bunny pillow arrived from Ruth and is sitting on her bed!



So that's the scoop!

See you soon,

Linda
