Mid-March Update

I have completed another figure on my Sailor Moon piece so I thought I’d do a quick update.

This is Princess Kakyuu, the Fireball Princess, a friend and ally of the Sailor Scouts. Another confetti filled figure, but I really enjoyed working with the colors in her dress.
I’ve been working a bit on my blackwork sampler too. I have the first pattern filled in and am about halfway through another. I really like how it’s coming along so far. The first pattern is done in the lightest pink shade I chose (out of four) and I thought it might be too light in one strand but it seems to be working just fine J.

February Stitching

I got some more progress in on the Winter Lady last month.

I didn’t manage to finish the first portion of her dress like I was aiming to but it’s at least started J.
More endless blue on Sloth. I actually reached a mini milestone on her though, as the blue rows are now short enough that they’re contained to the first page of the pattern!

Here’s my blackwork sampler once again, this time with the borders for the first four blocks complete. This is what I was madly working on during the first half of the month and then had to put aside to work on other things, haha.  I hope to begin filling in block one this month so it may take over once again!

The samurai’s back! Now he has his hands, fan, one katana, and the baby tree above his shoulder done. I may try to finish his other katana before I move on from him or I may not J.
