PIG was put aside for a while this month while I worked on exchange projects, and I wasn't sure I'd have part 3 finished on-time. Part 4 of Persian Iris Garden will be released tomorrow, and it looks like I am right on schedule for this one. Last night, I finished the beads and tonight I will add the last little bit of metallic braid. That means that tomorrow I will be ready to start part 4.
I decided not to take an update pic until I complete part 3. In the meantime, I was browsing through some WIP photos and came across this UFO.
The design is Flower Power, by Crossed Wing Collection. There's a photo of the pattern here. It's a huge design-- 574 x 340 stitches. I started it on 32 ct. antique white Belfast linen. The entire design is to be stitched over 2, but I decided to convert the hummingbirds and insects to over 1. I think that's where I went wrong. I got part of the way into the first hummingbird, put the project down, and never picked it back up again. Someday, perhaps I'll frog the over-one bits and get back to work on it.
