Arthur Is Finished

Arthur Is Finished

My second finish of the year.  QS Arthur is finished at last.

The last page was very small so it seemed more sensible to work pages 8 and 9 together and get him finished.  My first finish done in half cross stitch and I’m still in two minds about it.  The main issue I had was the confetti and how thick that made it feel.  By the end of it I had figured out a method of stitching that helped me to cope a little better with the constantly changing of colours.  I do like the depth of colour that the two strands seemed to add and the half stitches really helped me get through the blocks of colour in the background.

Would I do it again?  I’m not sure, I’ve still got Into The Sea which I’m also stitching in half crosses and that is going well at the moment.  Once that one is finished I might have a better idea whether it’s the thing for me or not.

Whispers is now the focus project and Into The Sea is being stitched during lunchtime at work and is easy for travelling away for those not at home stitching sessions.  I’d really like to get Whispers finished next year so I’m going to need to spend a lot more of my stitching time on that one.


A crafter of many years, now using this blog to share my ongoing projects and tips for others to enjoy. I mainly concentrate now on Heaven and Earth cross stitch designs - with several projects on the go at any one time. Also often found knitting shawls and socks, papercrafting. Easily distracted by new cross stitch patterns. Slave to a tyrannical black n white cat called Yuen.
