Whispers Fiddly Flowers

Whispers Fiddly Flowers

I’ve been looking forward to getting started on the dress of Whispers I think I had this strange idea that it would be really simple and I’d breeze through it in no time.  Well I forgot about the flowers didn’t I.

It’s a beautiful page but those flowers on the waistline had so many colours and they really slowed me down.  They look gorgeous though and I really like the effect of the lacy bit between the bodice and the skirt.  The skirt bit is a nice mix of colours rather than blocks.  There are just two pages left on this row and I’ve gone straight onto the next page as part of my plan to finish Whispers in 2015.  She’s now my focus piece and I’m aiming to work two pages on Whispers and one page on another wip which at the moment is going to be Alice so I don’t have to take Whispers off this stand.  At the same time I’m still working on Into the Sea, it’s back at work for lunch hour stitching so very slow progress but it’s a very relaxing way to spend an hour.
