Progress!

QS Plum Gothic (C) HAED & Caron Vinson - Progress as at 30 Jan 2009

Don't you just love those pouty lips?!

I've been working on Dark Cherry and The Encounter too but just haven't got around to taking up-to-date progress shots yet. It is SAL weekend for Dark Cherry so I will wait until that's finished before taking another pic.

Ruth asked how it is that I find over one stitching to be soothing - lol. I honestly don't know :) I get into a zone where I can just leave everything behind, be it a crappy day or worry over a family member or friend, and head off to daydream land for a couple of hours. If something's bothering me I've usually thought out a solution after a stitching session too :) And, it always amazes me that after hours of stitching tiny little crosses, it will take just one and suddenly an eye or a mouth, or a turret of a castle or a tiny little flower or leaf, will appear.

Or it could be that I'm just bonkers - lol!

She is looking beautiful!
I agree about over one stitching-you just get in that zone, and then something appears, so you have to keep going to see the next thing!

Plum Gothic is stunning! I am glad that you have finished the face, including those pouty lips. I like stitching over one also, as long as I don't have to frog anything.

She's gorgeous! I'm going to be picking up my haeds again soon. I miss them.

Bonkers? Perhaps. :) But I know what you mean about things suddenly appearing in your stitching and, for me, they always bring an surprised sort of joy. Why the surprise I do not know -- afterall -- it's my intent when stitching to make things show up on the fabric, right?

Love your progress!

She is amazing! Where can I get lips like those??

Sally said...

Mel she looks fantastic! I love her face.

I understand about going into that zone -- I esp like to do that before falling asleep ... but, stitching over one? That is a challenge for this fossil!!! I limit my over one stitching to an hour at a time. I love your projects -- stunning
