I have done a little more on Gracie, this time some elongated seaweed leaves using a Needle Necessities very light variegated green. I still have to do some seaweed ferns using the featherstitch before I can start working on Gracie herself. There will also be another elongated seaweed that will be added at the end of the stitching as I am keeping all the wired elements for the very end. Never done any stumpwork before so I feel quite excited by what is still to come on this project.
The day is still young so will go back to my stitching and see how much I can manage to do today :-)
