My stitching is staring at me!

I've been enjoying my break from university for five weeks - I've been free for two now. I'm also feeling a lot less sick now that I've got a new doctor and new treatment which is helping a lot and giving me more energy. With all that free time and energy, what do you do? I stitched! :) So here's Dark Cherry with 80x155 stitches complete, about 38% complete.

22nd June 09

Sorry for the blurry photo - my camera didn't seem to want to cooperate! She's stitched 1x1 in DMC and Petite Treasure Braid for the sparkles, on 32ct white jobelan. I love her eyes, they're softer in the stitching than in the picture, or the web version anyway. I love stitching Ching-Chou's pieces, they have such lovely colours and faces. The flowers are lovely too even if they are horibbly confetti-ish, that bottom one on the left is quite sparkly IRL!

I'll probably try to keep up with the Thursday SAL, but I won't be posting row finishes as often since I've swapped focus pieces for a little while, but she'll be back on the frame soon enough. I have to swap focus pieces or I burn out, especially since I'm addicted to BAPs and have been since I started stitching again as an older teen/adult. If you want to know what I'm stitching right now, keep an eye on my blog here (not my blogger account)

Thanks for looking! :)

I so love this piece... the colours are so alive. You have managed to do a nice bit despite being ill and school. I am glad to hear that you are getting better, I am certain that the cold outside is not helping.
