Rejoice!

For I have returned! I have battled demons and monsters and persevered and am back!

This one is Lindsay's Beguiling Tiger. I got a bit of a shock when I received it since (keep up with me here) I'd seen a picture of it the previous stitcher had posted and since it looks so detailed I'd assumed that it was a bigger piece. Not so. It's 5x7 on 18 ct. The second shock was when I realized how tiny the holes looked. Apparently I'd gotten used to the 14 ct of the previous designs...

As it arrived:


As it goes out



Now this isn't anything near how much I usually stitch on a round but I was running horribly late so I just sucked it up and sent it on.

And then I pulled out the next RR and somehow it was "click". I may have a picture by the end of the week...

Good to see you back.
Well done - you made good progress.

Sweet. I've actually stitched this one before. It stitches up quickly despite its detail. It is quite small finished. =]

I would never have guessed that this was only 5 x 7 either. You've made some good progress on it.

The size was a shock to me as well. The hardest part for me was making it fit in my q-snaps.

Rachel said...

I was also surprised at the size! And like Rebekah, I had a hard time getting it to fit in my qsnaps!

I am glad you are getting some stitching done, I hope the stitchy feeling stays with you awhile!
