Mystery #9 Being Stitched Publicly

Pat Miller is going to blog-stitch Loretta's Mystery #9 ("Shimmering Silks") on her blog.  You can follow along by clicking on the links, earliest on top.  I'll update this article as she stitches.  But if you don't want to see the design and preserve the mystery, don't click on the links!

*****************************************

Of course if you want to cheat and see the ending, here is the article about "Shimmering Silks" from the Loretta Spears Design Archive.  Click on the photos to get a better view as Pat works her needle magic.  It's very interesting to see the design develop.  Finished photographs don't reveal the intricacies of this design the way that Pat's WIP photos do.

The thing I notice most from watching a step-by-step progress report is how intricate Loretta's mysteries are.   Photos of just the finished pieces don't show that at all!
