Border Collie WIP: My Mother in Law wanted me to stitch this for her so… here’s the start!
Extreme close up - you can see the metallic pink better here.
Rose Fairy WIP: Backstitch went so freaking quickly I can’t even. I only started it today. There’s two types of backstitch in here - normal brown thread and metallic pink.
Rose Fairy WIP: Update, finally! I was on holiday last week so not able to stitch as I left this at home.
Rose Fairy WIP: All that’s left of this rose is the darker shading and backstitch, then I can work my way down to a bunch of flowers at the bottom. The plan is to stitch the fairies face last.
Rose Fairy WIP: Here’s the update I promised. There’s two colours in the top section now and I’ve already started a third since then. I wanted to give you an idea of the size of this project, so the rose is 66 stitches wide by 75 stitches high at the moment. The finished project will be 139 stitches wide and 170 stitches high.
Stitches… Rose Fairy update coming up!
The Rose Fairy WIP: Took out the shading because I’m too lazy to stitch all of it and added a ton of pink to the top of the rose.
Stitched right up to the page crease and started the top half of the rose! I need to stitch in a ton of shading and I’m not looking forward to it.
A better look at the satin. The chart originally called for 2 strands, which I tried and it didn’t work out. I found it far too bulky. So I switched to just one strand and as you can see, it sits evenly and has good coverage.
…and here’s what it looks like now! I’ve been stitching like crazy and I’m beginning to feel like I might one day reach the end of this rose. There’s satin, metallic and normal threads in this piece.
Been a while since I stitched this, so this is what The Rose Fairy looked like last time I posted…
Bought new thread today!
Arrows WIP: Getting the green in now.
Minimalist Arrows WIP: One colour left and this arrow will be complete.
