It's All Brown

I dug out Venetian Opulence, which hasn't been seen here since September when it looked like this:

Venetian Opulence - Mirabilia
32 ct Ivory
It now looks like this:

It's not much for a week's worth of stitching (barely halfway through a rotation). I'm blaming my inability to find an entertaining audiobook. Right now I'm trying to get through "The Traitor Baru Cormorant" which is interesting plotwise, but the narrator's voice is a bit too soothing and is putting me to sleep. Maybe I should listen to an old favourite again...

It is amazing how much your location effects your stitching, I often stitch in silence whilst hubby read, if we have TV on the frog come out.

The colours in this are gorgeous! I think you have made good progress although it does sound like a different audio book is required. x

I wasn't familiar with the piece you're stitching, so I Googled it. She's going to be stunning when she's done! Enjoy her. :)

Actually that looks like quite a bit of stitching. I'm working on a Shepherd's Bush pattern and I work and work and work and it hardly looks like anything.
