IHSW January 2014

Another hermitage weekend has come and gone but a few different projects got worked on this time.


I’m inching ever closer on this guy! I went back to concentrating on specific sections and it seems to have helped. Just one background section and the rest of his tail left to go J.


I also managed to finish the next portion of the Summer Lady’s dress. Only one more section left, so she’s still moving along at a nice pace.


Here’s that new start I’ve been threatening, haha! This is the Russian Angel by Barbara Baatz. I’ve done a few of her fairies but always wanted to try out her angels. Still trying to determine if I like the fabric color I picked out- I think it’ll work out alright. Not a lot to see yet but that is the beginning of her head scarf.

Have a great stitching week!

New Post for a New Year

Well, we’re not quite a week into the new year and I think it’s gotten off to a decent start J. I’ve even managed a couple of finishes so far.

On New Year’s Day I finished another figure on my Sailor Moon piece. To be more specific, it’s Artemis the cat:
 
He was adapted from the Luna pattern designed by Dork Stitch- all I did was to change around the colors. Hopefully I can get a few more figures done this year J.
I also managed to finish the dragon ornament I was making for my mom.

 
I think he turned out pretty well! I ventured into some new territory with the fuzzy thread but once I just ignored how frumpy I thought the stitches looked we got along quite well, haha!
Speaking of dragons, I have still been plugging away at my HAED:

 
He is so close to being done! I do plan to hopefully finish him this year, but my mojo for him has waned once again.
In the meantime the Summer Lady is coming along quite well:

 
Her dress is fairly close to being finished, there’s just one more section after the blue one. Then it’s just the metallic stitching and background left to go!
I’m also planning a new start in the near future as several pictures are calling to me, so I’m quite looking forward to the year ahead J.
Have a great stitching week!
