Updates

I have a bunch of in progress photos to share with you all.
I work on about three projects at a time on average... a small one, an epic one and a standard one.
This time around because I need beading needles and have not gotten to the store yet I have an extra small one in the mix.

Let's start small.. here is the Just Nan "Frost on the Pumpkin" Completed all the stitching just need to attach the beads now. It's stitched on 30ct evenweave.



My other ornament is Dewdrop from Just Nan, this is stitched on evenweave 30ct over two.



This is my "standard piece" it's for my cousin who is due in June to have her first. So I'm hoping to have it completed and framed by then. I'm well on my way. It's by Bobbie G Designs.There is a train that goes below the baby and some more blocks, plus backstitch but most of the primary design is now in there. It's stitched on a 28ct linen (can't remember the kind... but I don't like it so will try to make sure I don't buy it again) it's just too flimsy.



And finally the epic piece. It's Judgement from the tarot series by Character Creations. It's over one on 25ct ivory evenweave. It's epic in so many ways. This is the first page and a half... so there is already over a thousand stitches on it and you can barely tell! My uncle has asked me to stitch this for him, he kindly bought all the supplies and has challenged me to complete it in about two years. I'm praying... but not confident that that is possible.
This photo is not the greatest... it's heard to photograph the stitches when they are so small!



Thanks for dropping by. I'm gonna try and upload new pics of items every week to ten days. (that is about how often I can convince my man to take them for me likely).

Saturday I am hopefully getting to my local store (haven't been able to get there in months because of snow) so I am excited to pick up supplies for some new projects. Including the Papillion SAL. I think I am going to do this one.
