Two For One

After the missing picture it’s time for an update on QS Arthur.  I had finished page 6 but somehow not got around to taking a photograph before starting page 7.  So here is a picture with pages 6 and 7 complete. As you can see not much left until it’s finished.  Lots of blocks of colour to do as well, this is the point where I’m glad that I stitched it using half crosses instead of full crosses. I’ve also finished changing my old computer space into my new craft room,...

Now Where Was I?

I was going to update with a new picture of Arthur that I’d taken last week only to realise that I haven’t updated my Alice picture.  As Alice was done first I’ll do a little catch up on her first. Page 3 is done and a little more detail is beginning to emerge, we’ve got the archway above the door which is just some trees but it’s nice to work some greens in with those golden brown colours.  The next page will see me halfway through the first row of pages,...

Happy Christmas Stitching

Finally I’ve finished page 21 of Computer Catastrophes! It wasn’t the actual stitching that took so long, my page on this has been disrupted by a very chilly stitching area.  I have my chair and my stand set up in front of the window so that I can make the most of the natural light.  No matter how good your stitching lamp is nothing can beat sunlight.  The trouble is that when the weather gets cold that area gets coldest first and sewing stops being fun.  I’ve moved my stand...

Slow Coach Couch Dragon

Couch Dragon update this week and I’ve finished pages 7 and 13 so I’ve now got the full width and height in which also means that I can see how much I have left to do to get this one finished. There isn’t a lot really just four full size pages and six partial pages so I’ve made the decision to stop rotating projects to concentrate on this one.  I feel a lot better when I don’t have so many to divide my time between so I’m going to try to get some finishes...

Long Time Stitching

Long Time Stitching

It’s been one of those busy weeks and this page on Couch Dragon took me a little longer than expected.  It’s been a while since I last worked on it so it took a little time to remember where all the symbols were on my needle organiser. The page is done now and my newest little dragon has a face and there’s another little guy in the picture on the wall.  I really love how these pictures stitch up, so colourful and bright which is why they make a nice little break from...
