Leaf progress










Before

Here is my progress - she now has another eye-brow. I have been stitching on her quite a bit this week. I just love stitching on this piece especially now that her face is coming together. I love having the face done as she then talks to me as I stitch.

I just love reading people's stories about their stitching journey. I also love the fact that we come from all over the world with so many different life stories. It really enriches my life to know you all.

I have also been working on Daydreaming SAL too.

I agree totally about when you get the eyes stitched. The personality of the piece just falls into place, and continues to grow!

Hello Annette !

I was waiting for your progress on Leaf because I find stunning the way she looks like real. I really think that your work is much much more beautiful than the picture. Is this not the best which can happen ?!
This wonderful girl on Leaf attracts attention and her eye hypnotizes me. Very delicious feeling !
Of course, I can't wait to see her second eye... Happy stitching !

Beautiful stitching. I love Selinas artwork bt this piece is one that I have just skimmed over until I have see your beautiful stitching. Needless o say this piece has now landed in my wish list.

Keep up the hardwork, as I will be living through your stitching till I am able to purchase this fabulous piece.

I totally agree about the face! I try to get to my faces in pieces as soon as I can. I love looking at them while I'm stitching the rest. She's just lovely and I can't wait to see more!
