I'm done with the second (or ninth) page of Gaudí! I've suffered a lot with the confetti stitches, but the end result is worth it, right? :) For a change, I'm continuing with page 2, and a nice big patch of blue :D
And fortunately I'm making a slow but steady progress with the as well, I'm done with half of the second page.

I am finally starting to feel better so here is the start of page 8.....
It looks a bit washed out and with loads of white showing through but that's just because of the flash it really doesn't look that bad.
I hope to get a lot more HAED stitching in next month and have another page finished (we can dream can't we lol). I have to say looking at all the wonderful work on this blog really does make you want to sit and stitch doesn't it? Great work ladies as always :)
Thanks for reading and commenting. Happy stitching everyone :)

Before and after:
I'm really enjoying to read this blog. Almost every day I check up what's new in here. Such a wonderful progresses you have done.
My own work is moving on quite fast now. I found some motivation to finish my second row. Page 11 is finished finally (it took me really long time) Now I'm working page 12 witch is last page in this row and also smaller than other ones. Few thousand stitches and sky is done (only Kreinik is left now). After that I will celebrate because it has been really frustrating to stitch 6 pages blue sky. And some mountains to do also, but I'm hoping to manage that promptly.
Around 30 % is ready now. Huh.
I haven't touch my Astronomer many weeks now, but that's OK. My priority is finish The Encounter first, so I don't take any pressure about moving on Astronomer.
Have a nice stitching week and SAL my friends!

Sorry I have been MIA for the last couple of months. I got sidelined by my Chatelaine, and managed to finish all the stitching on it, so now it is time to go back to my rotation.
I finished pages 24 and 29, and now have 2 whole pages and 2 partial pages left. I will definitely see this one finished this year!
Everyone's progress is so beautiful-I love seeing all the updates.
I will be around more I promise!
Have a wonderful day.

As you probably already know it, my favourite artist is Kinuko Craft.
A few weeks ago, I felt captivated by one of her wonderful artwork : Elfland.
It was not the first time that I saw this painting, but it suddenly took sense for me. I was in communion with the atmosphere and all the details.
That's why I'm diving into this journey with my needle.
And I must say that I'm totally fascinated during stitching it.
Although I haven't finished the first page yet, I wanted to share my work with you.
So, here is my work :
Thank you all for beeing in such a beautiful community...
And, to finish my post, let me wish you all, a good luck for the giveaway !
Happy stitching !!

Here is my progress on the Mermaid of the Deep SK. I have almost completed
my monthly goal, but of course left the confetti to last! LOL Anyway, she
is stitching up quite quick, but I am determined to stitch to my rotation
goals this year.
