Wedding Shellbox Done

Finally decided to stop obsessing about it, and call it done. There are several places that I would like to redo, but refrained because of the unforgiving Nishijin fabric.
My next project is the Phase 6 Eternal Grace. I also have an extra piece, the "Lightning Bug" that I am contemplating starting as well, but since I don't functional too well with multiple projects (I tend to focus on the easier one) I probably shouldn't.

I'm in JE avoidance mode. But I do want to finish the 2 (GPR Tacoma) seminar pieces while they are fresh in my mind. The "easier" one is Lois Kerchner's Naoshima Sunset. It's about 60% done. I found the criss-cross Hungarian for the shrubs difficult to count, and took a bit to get into the rhythm of the pattern.

I was fortunate enough to meet with Kay Stanis during the GPR Tacoma seminar and got some feedback from her about my piece. At the time only the butterfly was not finished. I was very appreciative that Kay pointed out some areas of improvements.
Today I started on the butterfly.

Done done done! The chip edging was fun to do, and looks nice.

Finally! I will do the final cleanup later, and maybe get a better picture taken of the piece.
