its been ages

It has been quite a long time since I have posted anything. I have a new start QS Diamond by Rachel Anderson. I promise to add pictures when there is something significant to show. :)

An update by Jo

eeek!  Don't delete me!  It's been waaay too long since I posted, so here are some of my recent wips.  All are stitched on 28ct jobelan, one over one and full crosses.

First up is Tranquility (The Vintage Angel), I've just managed to get past the first page.  I'm still enjoying stitching her but all that blue .....!

So as all that blue got a bit much, I decided to make a start on A Princess is Born (Hannah Lynn).  I can honestly say that the first page has been agony!  As much confetti as a Wall!!! It has taken me 6 weeks to do, I can usually do a page in 2 weeks, tops.  

Finally, is Mini Masquerade (Sessler) another confetti nightmare.  I have to say though that the limited amount of colours does make a nice change.  Also, although this is a mini, I cannot really see any loss of detail.  I think Michele has done a great job with it!

I will try and update a bit more regularly in future.  Still loving seeing all yours wips - so inspiring!

Qs Genieveve

I love this design reminds me of my youth when we walked around and thought we ate the world.
Although it has a lot of work I like to embroider


A big step

And here I am with this wonderful haed, I love the result and I have wanted to see his face!Galindo
Step 22

Step 23

Step 24

Three worlds, MC. Escher

The second Page of the second row, runs again until the end. I was afraid that the few colors would stand against me. But nothing is less true. It is not boring. There's also alot of Kreinik in between. That glistens so beautifully.

29º Paso

A while since I put no progress, but here I am with this development, I hope that as you finish your face look better because now I see very dark!sudor

Afternoon Tea. RE-start

Hi everyone! I re-started my "Afternoon Tea" this month... The first was in Madeira and I didn't like it. So, this time I use the original DMC floss.
And I decided to stitch without the border (like in "Sunday Delight").
Wish me a good luck :))

I finished a column

It's quite sad just how ewxcited I am about finishing the first column of Dragon Rider. Only another 6 to go (I think).
I am loving working on it though, especially the fact that so far I've only done background and the detail is still so beautiful.
Dragon Rider by Randal Spangler
Stitched 1 over 1 on 25 count evenweave.

A new start - Smartie Pants Pink - Hannah Lynn

I started her at the beginning of February.She is stitched on 18 count aida 2 over 1 full cross stitch.I started her in the middle.

HAED's Princess Izzy and SK Phuan as of 16th February 2012 by Gizzimomo

Hey Everyone,

First up is my Princess Izzy update! I have completed Page 4 but now Izzy is going away for a spell while I work on some of my other projects. Don't worry as she will be back in a few months I'm sure!

Page 3 Done (As of 15th February 2012)

Total Progress So Far
 Next up is my SK Phuan update. I have FINALLY finished Page 3 and have made the decision to finish Phuan at that point instead of stitching the final half a page. I struggled so badly with the last page as it really bored the hell out of me and as the final page is more of the same and I just can't bring myself to stitch it.... besides I actually prefer the look of the finished piece be finishing it here as his leg looks at little bit odd at the bottom on the cover photo so I'm glad to finish it here.

Page 3 Done

SK Phuan - Finished as of 16th February 2012

Keep an eye out...... Faerie Melody is making a comeback!!!!

stitched on 25count ecru even weave, 1 over 1
Almost finished! So exciting.

Elaine - QS Fantasea

I'm so happy to be seeing more of her face and hat.  I have decided that I shouldn't compare the stitched piece to the original artwork, but just be content with how the stitching looks on its own.  Otherwise I find too many differences.

So, here she is after 63 hours of stitching (a nice even 7500 stitches).  22 ct. hardanger, 2 over 1.
