So here's what's been going on at my house in between proposal hecticness.
The Polly collages are taking their final shape. I'm close to being able to arrange the little scenes in the boxes. I just need to paint a few things yet. (Like the taps on her clogging shoes.)
I've stitched backgrounds for several collages, and the frames are in the last stages of being painted now. So these should go together in the next week or so.
I've stitched several mini quilts - a new framed series that I'm going to offer to the shops for the holidays. They have lots of sparkly metallic threads and beads - even Swarovski crystals. And I'm painting the box frames with jewel-tone metallics. I think they're going to be pretty.
I still haven't got the fluffy-flower-ornament cards put together. I haven't even started on the angel cards. And the fluffy-knit-Christmas-tree experiment was a complete failure. I've got a long way to go before November 15! Cross your fingers for me.
