Soooo maybe I am slightly addicted to working on Fans of the Far East. I worked on it for over 20 hours already this month and just had to drag myself away from it to get my monthly stitching done on TLOA! But all this stitching makes for great progress, and it's kind of useful to be addicted to a project you are on a deadline with, you know?
Anyways, these past ten hours I was focusing on the leaf-y border part again. My goal was to finish the left side border, and that took me all of five hours to get done! So I moved on to the bottom, stitched up on of the ribbon/tassel things so I didn't have to leave that as negative space in the border, and stitched another four leaves wide worth of border:
Once I am caught up with TLOA, I'll be back to working on the pink fan - I'm really looking forward to that as the flowers are so pretty, but first I need to finish the 'spokes' part of the fan, and the white pattern in the dark blue.
