One Eye

Yet another unplanned mini-hiatus. I'm starting to feel like The Boy Who Cried Wolf! It's frustrating and irritating me because I know that I should be stitching and posting but I can't seem to do it. But I think we're all getting tired of my repeated whining and failings on that count so I'll just get to the stitching.

A little over half of the first page on Heather. The chart is in four parts and the first is a full page and the others aren't. I think I'm going to jump to page three, which is the one right below because it has less stitches than page two.


Heather
25ct Antique White Lugana

I really love the colour of her eye, even though it felt like there were a billion colours making it up. And her hair! I haven't seen pink hair that works in real life, but I absolutely love it here. The flash picks up a lot of the white bits where the thread doesn't quite cover the fabric, but it isn't as noticeable in person. And I think HAEDs are best seen at a little distance so hopefully it won't really matter.

Looks great.

Looks lovely so far :) I think jumping to page 3 is the right thing to do, if it doesn't take as long as page 1 it'll spur you on to tackle page 2 :)

Your lady looks wonderful, life often gets in the way of stitching, but the desire is always there waiting.

Well done! It is looking great. I am still struggling with page 1 of the dragon (just under a half). Going down to page 3 will definitely help those 2.5 page build up. Good luck.

She looks great. My daughter has begged and begged daddy for pink hair. Not happening!!!

She looks amazing! So what if life gets in the way of stitching sometimes? It happens to us all at one time or another and it is OK. The important thing is that you enjoy it when you do have time and are in the mood.

Yay, you're back to blogging again! Don't be so hard on yourself, LOL, I for one am always happy to read whenever you post ;) Great progress!

Lesley said...

Very pretty. I love the colours in her hair.

Making good progress and if you can do another page with less stitches as someone else has said this will spur you on for another page finish and we all know we need that when stitching a HAED ;)
