Sunshine and Snow

The warm summer weather has finally decided to put in an appearance so it feels a bit odd to be stitching flakes of snow.  More of Snow Girl’s hair has appeared and I’m now at an interesting point of lots of colour changing around the curls of her hair and where the snow flakes have landed on her hair followed by several hundred stitches straight of black.  I really like how it’s turning out though.  At least it isn’t so hot that I don’t feel like stitching,...

In the bottom corner her hair is making an...

Aching Shoulders

Ouch my shoulders ache.  Spent all evening stitching because I thought I could get my page finished on Whispers.  Yes I did it and it only took me a week.  I’m not sure what it is about her but she really seems to stitch well and I barely notice the time on her. This page I finally got some proper foreground to stitch.  I’ve had little bits of the wings on other pages but this time I got to do some of the feather detail and it looks gorgeous.  The colours in the wing are the same...
