Yay, I’ve returned
from the wedding and was able to take part in the hermitage weekend once again!
I had a great time in the mountains though; the ceremony and scenery were both
really beautiful! Luckily the matte came in from Michaels just in time for me
to frame Aging Artfully. Personally I think it came out quite nice J.
this picture I was able to get back to some other stitching and I chose…David!
He’s now got all his stripes in and I’ve started on the blue.
Woo hoo, they’re
done! The last of the backstitching went in a couple of days ago, so now I can
finally cross my oldest WIP off my list J.
They turned out a
lot better than I was expecting, which is a good thing J. The leopard in particular I think came
out well, but all the animals are nice. Now one of the projects on my
WIPocalypse list is done. I didn’t actually list finishing any projects as my
part of my goals (I said I just wanted to work on them all, haha), but I was
secretly hoping some would get finished. So, now onto the next victim er,
down, so it’s time to see if I’m making any progress again, haha! The majority
of my recent posts have been about the wedding present I was making for my best
friend. As I finally finished that project at the end of June I was able to go
back to my WIPocalypse pieces, but only for a day or so. I do however have two
projects to report on this month, so that’s a step up!
First is my update
on the HAED BB freebie SAL, Blue Moon. I’m starting to work my way down the
sides now, on either side of the girl and the moon, and here’s what it looks
The second page
has come out already, but I’m enjoying working on the first J.
I also have
another update on the Animal Heads! I’ve been close to finishing this one for a
while now, with only the backstitching left to complete, but Aging Artfully
needed to be done first. I have finished the backstitch on the animal heads
themselves but it’s still… not done, haha!
I started working
on the final bit of backstitch which is the background, so hopefully it won’t
be too long before this one is done as well J.
Finally, I’ve made
steps toward starting my Ultimate Sailor Moon picture, which is another piece
on my WIPocalypse to-do list. I’m not going to say which character I’m starting
with, but here’s a little teaser:
