Barnacles and Tony Soprano

During these past two weeks I have had to be very strict with my schedule (read: no dawdling on Pinterest). I have worked from about 7am - 4pm on Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search project , breaking to make my family dinner and look at actual humans in the eye , then back at it from about 6pm - 11pm. Many nights I work on my embroidery for the Beasts series. My husband and I have been watching The Sopranos (we are late to the party) and I have to say I am sucked in!  I embroider barnacles and mandalas to be placed on the Humpback Whale and listen to Tony Soprano get emotional with his therapist. 

 A sneak peak at some of the original painted portion of my submission. I will reveal the final after 8/26
