First Rose from Christensen

Finally a page done. It's so slow on the frame. But with this fabric, it is beautiful. Its a Belfast linnen. February is not over yet so I'm going to start the second page. The crackle effect of the dress is good to see. I am working with 16 different shades of green. You become totally spinning from when you look at it.

I can not tell you how strongly I was waiting for your start on The First Rose.
I knew that you were working on it this month, and I remembered the beautiful fabric that you chose for it. So I was in thoughts with you during your start !
And now, look at this marvelous result !!!
It is gorgeous, and I think that the colors are much more bright and beautiful then the original painting !

Really amazing...
Thank you for sharing it !

And, I can hardly wait until your next update... but I will !

Happy stitching Astrid !!!

Wonderful start Astrid! The greens and the crackling are the reasons I bought this one too...maybe some day I'll pull her out again. Just too much fabric to handle in my 6 inch Q Snaps.

So, if the frame is slowing you down, how do you usually stitch? And I feel like tying one hand behind your back because you're still fast!!!!!
