Thanks to the leg block page on Gamer Nouveau and a few days holiday from work I had lots of time this month to work on Just Be. I changed frame as well. I had been using a lap frame but because I was planning to spend a lot of time on him I knew that it would be uncomfortable to continue that way. I like to sit up straight especially when I’m planning to stitch for several hours and the sofa just encourages me to slouch. I had put my System 4 stand away after finishing Into The Sea but it made sense to get it out again and stitch in my usual chair.
This piece is still my favourite to work on. The details of the fur are picking up so well and the subtle shades of blue, grey, cream and green and forming a lovely sky. It’s just a shame that I can’t pick up the sparkle of the metallic thread that also runs through the cloud. I managed to complete another page this month and his ears are mostly done. The remainder of the top row is now a page and a bit of blue sky and clouds.
