Yei-bi-chei a 2012 EGA Seminar Class

I took this class October 29 & 30, 2012 at the EGA National Seminar in Santa Fe, NM and posted about it and the seminar on this post.

I decided to pick it up again and have been stitching on it most evenings for a few hours. 

The first photo is how is looked when I picked it up to restart on April 26, 2021. It is a two canvas piece. This is a mask that will be appliqued on a background piece (to be shown later).  While it seems we did not get a lot done in class, this is fairly typical. You have a short time to cover all the stitches so you can complete it later at home. We also did some practice work, for the mask applique and that time will not show in the class progress. 

I have been posting my progress each night on Facebook as I finish for the evening. Here are some of  those photos to show my progress.

At this point I just have to finish the left side background on the mask and decide if I will stitch the eyes or cut them out and use a black fabric behind them. Then I can work on the other canvas. I am a bit concerned that I may not have enough of the gold thread to finish - probably will find out tonight!

Happy Stitching!
