I have now fully complete one go-round through my rotation. With no tweaking! I love it, I absolutely love it. So, here's a few pictures.
First up, Through A Mother's Eyes by Paula Vaughn. My mom fell in love with this years ago and I said I'd stitch it for her. It truly is lovely, but the color chart is a PITA!!!! Anyway, this is the right outermost edge of the bride's veil, half the window and a good start on the mirror.
And this is HAED's Spring Cameo. Artwork by Deb Grieves. This is she at 3 weeks of work. Now, all 3 of those weeks were extraordinarily busy with me feeling very drained at the end of every workday. Doesn't make for good stitching progress. I had hoped to be nearly ready to start another page by now. Ah well. Life goes on. Isn't she pretty? She'll have a nose before I move on to my next slot.
And this one is a new start!!!! It's my next work project, A Favour by HAED, artwork by Leighton. It's in the Pre-Raph section on the website. This is the top left corner, a patch of the sky. It's nearly 500 stitches. I'm trying a different method with this one, going across and/or down 2 blocks at a time. It's working well. I did all of that in about 5 hours, so I started using that method on Spring Cameo yesterday and I feel like I'm making progress faster. Yay me!!!!
Today is turning into a bad day fibro wise. Took me forever to wake up, feel like I got run over by a Mack truck and my leg muscles are on fire. I'm thinking it's my body's reaction to having been pushed so hard for the whole month of July with History Camp.
