As such I made huge headway on page 3 of Alice. I'm very excited that she has a hand! It may not seem like much, but as I've said before, on 40+ pages of stitching you gotta celebrate the small stuff.
So here's half of page 3 added:
The entire piece to date:
I'm feeling a lot better about this piece now that I've seen the detail of her hand come together. Sometimes hose blobs of colour/background are difficult to really see value in. I know in the end it will be amazing but motivation doesn't always show up when I need it.
What I learned from this week of stitching while off and hibernating is that if I didn't have a job or do anything and just stitched all day long then I'd be able to finish off this piece in 1-2 years instead of 10+. Lol!
But unless my life plan A (to win the lottery) happens tomorrow I will continue to chip away at Alice when I can. :)
Hope your 2018 is starting off with some solid stitching!
