Life has been getting in the way of stitching lately. My right hand has been bothering me again, so I’ve cut back on stitching for a few days to see if it improves. And our 4 year old orange and white cat has been diagnosed with Asthma! So I’ve been taking care of him and getting 4 pills a day inside of him. Starting tomorrow, we’re down to 1 a day and I hope things continue to improve.
I’ve had difficulty keeping the mandala rolled tightly on a scroll frame since I started it in July of last year. So I gave up and put it on stretcher bars at the end of last week. It’s a lot easier to work on now and I hope to make better progress. I’m still working on the buildings on the first corner, adding the gold metallic thread to the buildings that are done and starting the buildings on the lower part this week.
The two buildings that meet at the corner are coming together as well. I’ll get the cupola on both of them and the one just above by the next post. I’m alternating work on this piece and the Blue Venice piece. Tomorrow I’ll be back at Venice.
And since it’s on stretcher bars now, I can easily show you the whole piece as well.
