I'm doing the left and right fronts at the same time, on the same needle, so they look a little crowded. I'm actually a little farther now than this picture, which was taken on a very dark and grey day, so the color is not the best. The directions have you do the same pattern sequence on the left side as the back, but then they SWITCH IT UP FOR THE RIGHT SIDE. Like, the left is 4" of moss stitch, then 3.5" of eyelet pattern, etc., and the right is 2" of moss stitch, then the eyelet pattern. Schwunh??? I don't play that kind of crazy, so I'm making them the same. Otherwise I'd be walking around with one shoulder slumped down by 2" all the time.
The Bumblebee is getting dangerously close to being finished.
I trimmed the thorax and cut out a wing. I may have done more than that since I took this picture, and you may want to drop back by on Friday. ;)
Side view of the bee. The thorax is supposed to be a "dome". Well, it's something like a dome, anyway.
Again, I didn't want to trim too much lest I create a bee with a crew cut!
Finally, I did make a start on Chocolat, a class I'm taking with Jackie du Plessis at The Attic in November.
I have to have 12 more of these motifs done by November 2...I GOTTA GET CRACKING!
For more WIP Wednesday eye candy goodness, head over to Tami's Amis!
A geek is "a person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits"; "a person with an unusual or odd personality".
I'm a programmer, but I consider needlework a very "technical" pursuit.
