WIPocalypse Check-in #1

Click now for JiffNotes

So far, I've had great success! Dasher was finished (click here to see his beauty shot). I took another shot to try to capture HOW MANY BEADS (and other various assorted sparklies) he's encrusted with.
 

I've started working on Shakespeare's Garden (which is also my first piece for Jardin January).
 
But sadly, I remembered that I am missing one of the DMC Flower Threads...2358. Anyone have one they can trade or sell me??

Don't expect a finish every month...that's not really my style. ;)

Oooo love the sparkly beeds on the Dasher design. Very pretty. I'm loving Shakespeare's Garden too. I see a lot of specialty stitches on that one.

Dasher is quite handsome with all of the finery around him! The sampler looks like it will be beautiful as well. Sadly, I don't have any of the DMC Flower colors..

Heather, I have one skein of 2358, but need some for a project I'm working on (probably less than half). Do you think you will need the whole skein?
Loretta
P.S. Dasher is beautiful, BTW.

Dasher looks fantastic and great progress on your garden too. I am excited about posting my WIPocalypse progress tonight too!

Love Dasher - those beads are sparkle-rific! Congrats on the finish. Shakespeare's garden is looking great, too!

Lindsay said...

If I can find the box with them in I might have one but no idea how long it'll take me to find it!

Joyus said...

Gorgeous finish - I love those beads (even more because I didn't have to sew them on LOL). Nice progress too

Love Dasher!!! Hubba hubba about Shakespeare's Garden. I might have to go check out the chart. :O
