Swirling Swirling

Has it really been over 3 weeks since I last posted? ha ha ha...

Anyway since the last post I've
a) finished Cinderella (pictures tomorrow because I deleted the ones I took because I thought I'd posted them and now I need to dig her out of storage
b) started Swirling Peacock by Joan Elliot


Swirling Peacock
32 ct Waterlily Jobelan

It's a pretty fast stitch. Those swirls are a bit of a pain since I have to count very carefully (and had to frog one when I miscalculated). The colours are even more vivid in person. I'm debating whether I should finish up the metallic moon or switch to the tail. I really want to start the tail!

Gorgeous! You should always stitch metallics last, or so I've been told, so I would move straight on to the tail!

That's looking gorgeous already!

I try and stitch the boring bits first and leave the best bits to last, that way I keep the project going and stitch quicker to get to the best bit.

This is one of those on my 'need to stitch' list. Haven't made it yet, so it's great to live vicariously off you! :D

Start the tail! If that's where you want to stitch then go for it.

I am loving the colours on this, they are absolutely lush and so vibrant. Must be alot of fun to stitch, sorry to hear about the wee frog appearance.
