Well I've finally decided on the next 'epic' piece. You're all going to laugh as it's not so epic as Dragons... but it'll still take me awhile and is the same format so I'm going to say it's the 'epic' piece of choice.
This time it's a real Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED) pattern. But of the mini variety.
My husband approved this choice and so we plan to frame and keep it for our home once complete. DH has been obsessed with Alice in Wonderland since I first met him more than a decade ago. He has tattoo plans for Alice items and is always finding comparisons to or references to Alice in everything and anything. We looked at a few Alice themed pieces but decided that this one fit our 'style' best. Our home is very antique/steampunk looking. We have a mix of antiques (Victorian tea box, 1941 typewriter (that works!), spinning wheel, and more) alongside new-ish furniture that is styled to look antique or military (rivets on the coffee table for example). So this Alice seemed to fit nicely into our mood (and it's pretty darn cool which is a big factor too!)

Here's my little, itty bitty start:
And let's not kid ourselves there is no way I am going to type "Alice in Clockwork" for the next however long before I complete this piece. So we will just shorten it to "Alice" now and save any grief later. :)
- Stitch From Stash update (I got invited to a unstash facebook group... it's awesome, yet awful...)
- Butterfly from Mill Hill kit is getting very close to being completed, update of it soon
- Take Time to Read from Jeannette Douglass: borders and one motif are complete, update very soon
- Owls is back from the framers (baby piece from a few months ago) and looks great. I'll share it as soon as I take some photos
Thanks so much for dropping by!
