WIP Pictures!

Finally got around to getting some WIP pictures last night (convinced the b/f into it for me as he takes the photos).

I have four works in progress right now.

First up let's talk about Sleep Tight. This is the baby one for my cousins baby... who is due in May! It has top priority right now. I have to get it done and I think if I keep pushing it then it will be okay (just means I might not get my Papillion SAL done before the next piece comes out, but that is okay). I am still unhappy with the linen I stitched on this one... but alas I couldn't afford time to restitch it. It will be considered still great by the recipient so that is good. But I will be more careful next time to pick something that is a bit hardier.


Here is the Papillion SAL. I am frogging less on this one, but still struggling with it a bit. I think it may be because I don't have proper scroll rods on it right now. But that is because I don't have rods big enough for it! (it's huge!) May have to work something out to make my life easier on this one...


Here is my epic stitching piece. Judgement. This one is slowly coming around. I am hoping to be done page 2 (out of 18!) by the end of the month. But that might not happen with Sleep Tight's baby deadline. The picture is crooked again... sorry. This one is tough to photograph as my b/f is trying not to put the tripod on the fabric (which is huge) but also get close enough to see the tiny stitches. Anyhow you get the idea. :)


And finally... my easter one, Just Nan's bunny. That did not get done in time (it doesn't really matter). So now I'll just finish this one as I have some extra time. It's in my work bag all the time so it stands a chance of getting worked on if I end up at a cafe or something on lunch. (all the others stay at home).




Thanks for visiting. And thank you for you past comments, I love getting them (as we all do!). They truly are inspiring to keep on stitching! (as if we all need some encouragement, but sometimes we do on the tough ones.)

Sleep Tight looks absolutely gorgeous. I bet your cousin will be most delighted. What's wrong with the fabric btw? Looks fine to me. The other stitching looks great too. Love the Pappillon Sampler..and of course admiring your Epic. And bunny is simply cute.

The fabric pulls funny to be Gabi. It's just not as firm as other linens I have used... seems like a tiny bit of tension causes large gaping holes... I dunno just haven't enjoyed working with it.

Your projects are nice and coming along!!! There is definitely a difference in linen, and the bad stuff really makes it hard! Your finished piece will look great.

You have some very nice projects on the go. The baby piece is so sweet and I'm sure you'll be able to finish it in time. I alos love JN's bunny. Oh, and the epic stitching looks great so far. What a project!

All projects are coming along quite nicely. I really like the color choice of the fabrics :0) Like Rene said - good luck on getting Sleep done in time.
