Mardi Gras Mask!

I finished my Ozark Sampler Fiber Class Challenge project. WEll, one of them at least is finished. This project was started back in February. The colors really pop!! It was supposed to be stitched on perferated paper..but I don't like to stitch on that so I stitched it on 14 count black adia. I plan on glueing it to cardstock, backing it with fabric. Then Iwill use feathers ribbons, beads and a chopstick for the mask handle. Mary gave us a pink mask handle but I think Jag took mine and now I can't find I will use a PF Chang's chopstick!!!

I have one more project to finish before I can start stitching on the Jane austen challenge piece.

Jane Austen update: I downloaded the novels on i-tunes podcasts for Mansfield park, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. I have been looking for a podcast that I like of Pride and Prejudice. I plan on listening to them on the plane and while stitching.

My sister emailed me to let me know that Lulu made it safely to India!! She is happy to be with her family and I know my sister is happy to have her home too!!!!
