A Finish! And Another Update on David

September’s been a good month for me finish-wise. I’m up to 2 now J . I suppose this just means it will be awhile before any more occur though haha.
So for today I have the completed picture of the Phantom Sisters. I’m pretty pleased with the result, even though half the picture is misplaced. I know no one but me can tell so it isn’t important in the end, but it’s the principle of the thing. If I’m going to take time beforehand to graph out and place the figures just so, it would really help if I could then count correctly on the fabric haha. Anyway, here’s how they turned out:

I have a wooden frame that I’m thinking of painting purple and then placing them in. I might show another picture once that’s accomplished. For those who may be interested, these sprites were designed by Alcnaurewen and the patterns for these and many other Sailor Moon characters can be found here. (EDIT: Ok, for some reason the link doesn't appear to be working correctly right now, at least for me. Hopefully it will later *shrug*).
I also have gotten farther on David’s face, as the whole top half is now done:

He’s certainly coming along, but he currently looks odd to me; I think it’s because of where I stopped at. The plan now is to finish up his face and neck and then return to Snow White. This is due partly because it’s been quite awhile since I worked on her and because I want to change some colors on David. The pattern includes his suit and trench coat, but since his coat is brown (and there are a lot of other brown/peach tones in the piece) I wanted to change his suit to the dark blue one. So going back to Snow White for a bit will give me time to find alternative colors that I like J .
That’s all for now I think. I’ve got to remember to squeeze in some time on Winter too- the lake is about half done now so not much more to go! And then it will be done! Always dreaming big J .
Have a great stitching week!

  1. Oh, the Sailor Moon thing is really cool, and even though you said it's misplaced, I can't see any problem with it at all! (Also, the link is working properly for me, so hopefully, it's repaired itself!)
