Sadness of Gaia Update.


I am working on Sadness of Gaia by Josephine Wall.

I have finally finished page 20 of 42.  I loved working on the animals but the confetti can be hard work at times, although I think its worth the effort.

I am hoping to complete this row soon.

Thank you for looking, Lesleyanne xx

Hi Stitchers,

I am working on one of Aimee Stewart's beautiful book shelves.  I started the piece in March 2014.  I am working on 18 ct Aida.  My method of stitching varies.  On high confetti areas I use the parking method.  On areas with 6 colors or less I stitch until the thread runs out.  Here are finish pictures of the first three pages.  This is the mini version of the pattern, but I still think there is amazing detail in it.

The Last Leaves

I was operated for myopia and astigmatism, this is the reason why I've been a long time without being able to stitch. Once recovered, I start again my penchant for cross stitch.

I show you my progress on The Last Leaves, by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. I love the contrast between the white and very light greys of the bottom and dark blue of the tree, or between the black&white of the scene and green of leaf on her hair.

It’s stitched on 25 count lugana, 1 over 1.
Happy stitching!

Kim (Demeter83's) Dragon Rider update

Here's my latest update on Dragon Rider, which I'm absolutely loving. The motorbike has appeared, which is very exciting. There's one stitch that's really bugging me that I think I'm going to have to unpick and to in a different colour (who'd have thought one tiny stitch could make such a difference), but overall I'm very happy with it!

World Travel Book Shelf

Finished second page of this wonderful project in regular size.  Really enjoying working with so many colors and elements.  Stitched on Lugana 28 count with full crosses.

update snow white


This is my update of the pattern Snow white. I work on it every evening and it brings me lots of joy.

Midieval Shelf, Spangler

It's the way it goes. Pressure, family activities and work. Many reasons, in order to find, time to write. Meanwhile, stitching continues. Maybe in a lesser extent than in previous years. That is not bad at all. Our grandson is a part of it. One more week to go, then Lucas gets a little brother.
I am stitching for this new brother. Midieval Shelf from Spangler. Lovely bright colors.
So in August, we have two grandchildren to sleep. It's getting crowded in the house. Cozy though.
