Whispers has a face

Mini Lost in You has been put on hold for a while at least until I can figure out what to do with all of that white.  So instead I’ve been working on Whispers, page 19 otherwise known as ‘face page’.  Actually it turned out to be full of confetti page and because I didn’t have as much stitching time as I would have liked it took a bit longer to finish.  Well not that long really because 8 days for a page is still really quick.  Possibly the television being flooded with...

I’ve...

Change of Plan

It should have been another week on Computer Catastrophes this week but I had a bit of a falling out with the fabric so rather than spend a week fighting it I decided to swap to Whispers for a page instead.  The fabric on Computer Catastrophes is very soft after working on the magic guide fabric and I prefer the firmer fabric I’ll go back to the page the next time it comes up or if I finish the next page quickly. Anyway I switched to Whispers, still a soft fabric but I’ve got...
