Back home and in the saddle again!
I've been out of town the last several days, but I took little Clara with me. I hadn't been on an airplane in almost two and a half years, and I was pleased to learn my little blunt-tipped Fiskars' scissors still pass TSA inspection!
Clara's dress is now finished, with trim added in DMC floss #3841.
With the lightest shades in place, I continued work on the Scotch stitches in the background and began filling in the tent stitches which frame them with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #014. The metallic thread provides just enough twinkle without detracting from Clara and her nutcracker.
I've got a fair amount left to stitch, as well as having a ton of canvases to paint, so I guess it's turbo-needle time!
