Small Goldfish Done

I finally got back to stitching this piece - the small goldfish is done. I broke down and got the LED clamp lamp, which works better for under-the-fabric lighting.  It clamps to the side of the stand, and casts a small circle of light, but it is not hot and does not interfere as much with my stitching.

And now all three fishes are done. The remaining seaweeds and bubbles should be easier...

For bragging rights from the recent GPR Seminar in Eugene, Oregon - I got First Place ribbon and Judge's choice in East Asian embroidery for Camellia; First Place ribbon for Goldwork for Blue Flower; and First Place ribbon for Beading for Rosy Posy - although for this one I got one point deducted for some scrunching of the yellow beads around the center circle; as it was stitched too tightly. I was not able to submit Falling Stars, which I think is a better piece; since I was only allowed to submit a maximum of three pieces, finished within the past 2 years.


  1. You're nearly finished. It's looking really good. Congratulations on the ribbons - they were well deserved :-)

  2. Congratulations on the ribbons :) Your work is amazing.
