not much done


Here is my progress at CdC, not much of a change since my last update photo. I go through these periods where I have a very hard time staying awake on the train and I'm in the middle of one now. :-) I've only been able to stitch for the entire ride the last 2 out of 5 rides. I'm ready to put this up for a while. I wonder when my new BBD Loose Feathers will arrive?

For whatever reason I think I only purchased one spool of Glacial premium silk for this piece and I'm starting to get low. If I do only have the one spool, I will run out. So the plan is to pick out a slightly dark shade of silk that uses the same color pallet as Glacial has and stitch the large center circles with it. Glacial has been discontinued and even if it hadn't been it's over two years old and the dye lots would never match. But I think the plan of a new color is a good one and as soon as I remember to check at home to see if I was smart enough to buy two spools, I'll start to work on the plans for the second color.

I too stitch on my train ride/commute and have those days. Sometimes it's just too hard to keep my eyes open. :) The piece you are working on is georgeous. I love that fabric.
