God's Fireworks and more Stitching Done!

Tonight I noticed the sky was unually red, so I went out to take a look.
This is what I was greeted with, a blanket of reds covering my house.

As I looked around, I was treated to this beautiful image. It made me think, who needs fireworks.

But, my neighbors did have a firework show, which seems to be going on, still;)
I am not an expert on fireworks, but here are a few that came out ok. The larger ones with bright colors had too many extra spots on them.

A few fun Spinners and interesting designs.

This one reminds me of a school of luminescent jelly fish.

And, I did get a little more done on my new piece. I messed up as usual, I cannot even follow my own patterns, lol.
I missed five stitches going up on the lady, so she is a bit shorter than she should be. I still have a bit more to go, guess it is bigger than I had planned;) SInce it is based on a fraktur, I am trying to use colors that I use with my watercolors. I do think it would be nice to use variegated floss on this piece.

Pretty sky and fireworks! Looks to be a great evening! Your stitching is coming along nicely! It looks like the lady is just right for that guy to me!

I can not do cross stitch even tho I would dearly love to. My eyesight is so terrible that I would have it in a total mess.

Love your design and it would make a lovely stitchery too.
Enjoyed the firework pictures.
Hugs, LenZie

I like the colors you chose for your piece and I like that you didn't use overdyes, although I'd like to see what that looks like. But I think it looks great as it is and I never would have noticed you were off on stitching the lady.
