Work In Progress Wednesday - Just A Few More Stitches

With only about ten or eleven weeks left in the year, I won't be finishing all of my 17 in 2017 projects in the year 2017.  I'm already planning to make my list of 18 in 2018, rolling over my unfinished projects from this year.


This week, I added two thread lengths to the kogin bag.  




I made one more pansy petal for the stumpwork project. The dark purple and dark yellow one on the right is the new one.


I pulled out the paisley purse for the first time since I've been in Japan and stitched on it for a few hours.  I took this class of Deborah Forney's in February 2009 in Raleigh, NC and I don't know if I worked on it again after the class. The class consisted of two parts, the pocket and the actual purse. The pocket could be made into a small pouch or a pocket on something else.  I think I will continue working on the pocket before I start working on the purse.  



Not a lot of progress, but still progress.  These are all 17 in 2017 projects.

Perseverance, focus and organization are some key words to meet great goals... Well to me it looks like you've achieved A LOT, up to now, Pam, and you certainly can be proud of yourself. Heartful congratulations, dear

Is the grid made up of only beads? Nice colours and design.
Yes, it will be hard to finish all the things we want before the end of the year!

Pamela said...

The grid is kreinik threads and silk threads. So far, the only beads are the half completed circle center on the ultrasuede flower. I'll try to take better pictures.

They are all great projects. I love the top project. It's very elegant.

Slow but steady progress is always good. Love the little flower shape on the beads.

Well, I'd say you get an awful lot of stitching done. Your work is gorgeous too!

I like that last one. Will it be all beads? What did you use to pad the center?

Pamela said...

There is felt under the ultrasuede flower. So far the only beads are the half circle couched around the flower circle. The shiny purple is kreinik thread and the other threads are silk.

I have the Paisley Purse design too. I haven't touched it since the workshop I took. I like all your projects!

Beautiful stitching and work.
The piece with the ultra suede flower and argyle pattern stitches
is amazing.

You might not finish all of your projects, but you did work on most of them and that's what counts! Lovely progress, I'm looking forward to seeing how that purse/pocket will turn out.

Great work on your UFOsin2017 My goodness you deserve a medal for the work you have learnt and are finishing Pamela. Your kogin work is beautiful isn't it painfully slow to grow LOL You can see why it is so expensive to buy if you can buy it. I use to see it for sale some times at Kamakura. Cheers Glenda

It's a good idea to transfer the not finished projects to next year's 18 projects. So they will be finished in the end. And I must say you have really gorgeous projects on the go.
