Waiting Room Project

With all of DH Tracy's doctor appointments I tried to find a project I could work on while waiting. I guess I'm getting to set in my ways and found it difficult to stitch out of my comfort zone at home. I decided maybe if I tried a project that didn't require color changes and constant check of the pattern I would be able to get some stitching done. This is the project that worked for me. It is done on 6 different colors of 28 count Cashel Linen with Dinky Dyes silks. The outline of the parts that make up the ball are done with DMC Perle Cotton. The following pictures show the cover of the chart, the fabric with just the outline done and the first 3 completed pieces. I still have to add the beads in the centers of the flowers but I'll do that when I have all 6 pieces stitched. I think this will be a challenge to put together but fun at the same time.
