Saturday update - February 7

More Dove Love! Here's my progress as of last Saturday:

And my progress through last night:
The entire bottom right corner is finished! This represents "2 pages" and a big hunk of the bottom middle of the design.
I did my Etsy work earlier this week. I'm still hoping for some comments on my current piece - even from non-stitchers. I feel like something is missing, and I want to get it right.

Here's a "before" picture of Emma #2:
I'm taking part in a Facebook group SAL - working on whatever we're working on for the weekend. So I'm going to do some work on Emma - hopefully finish leaves and start getting more color on the fabric. I haven't posted any updates on her in a while, so I thought I'd share this as long as I was scanning it for that.

Otherwise, this morning will be spent house-hunting! I have to go eat and get dressed so we can meet the realtor.

Have a great weekend, everyone! Thanks for looking, and I'd love to hear your comments!

Emma looks like a lovely piece.

Good progress on Dove Love.

As I'm not sure what a 'Wristlet Clutch' is I dond't feel I can comment on your other piece.

Good luck on your house hunting. Now should be a good time as long as you price your current house to sell quickly. We are building, as I'm sure it would be hard to find a house with a studio big enough for all my stash. ;-)

A "wristlet clutch" is like a small purse (clutch) - it will have a fairly short cord, so that it can be worn on the wrist. Basically, cell phone and lipstick size.

Good luck with your househunting and that is a lovely piece of counted cross stitch.
