Wishing You a Happy New Year from Gatsby

The new stitch I learned for Whitework is the eyelet stitch - it's a lot of fun poking a large hole in the fabric, except I have to re-stretch the fabric to be drum tight after that. Well there are a lot of eyelet stitches coming.

I tried using a lighter color for the beads background but it turns out the black looks the best, and balances the eye lashes,

The floche which are the padded work in progress is difficult to lay smooth; it is not tightly twisted so the stitches can turn out different.
