The Other Side Of the Bump

I like counting my sewings in terms of pages done and pages left to do.  It isn’t precise because the last row of pages are usually partial pages but it’s quicker and more visual to see how much you have left to do.  I’ve now finished page 7 of Mini Lost In You which means that there are only 5 pages left to stitch, I’m over the halfway bump and I’m beginning to think I can see this piece finished.  No mean feat considering the number of times I’ve looked at this and decided that I don’t like the way the colours work together.

Whenever I take a picture though all the colours blend together and it looks lovely.  One of the rules should be to stand well away from your picture so you can see how it will look when it’s framed and on a wall.  We often forget when we’re stitching that we won’t be so up close to our projects when they’re finished.  It’s good to have some more stitched on the girl even if there was around 1000 stitches of bright white in a block to get through.  I’m beginning to get to the detail of her dress now but there’s still lots of blocks of black and white to stitch on the coming pages.  I prefer stitching blocks of black to blocks of white, with the white I feel like I pick up every bit of fluff in the house left by grumpy cat.  Tweezers are a necessity in my sewing box.

Next I’ve decided to stitch a page on Computer Catastrophes.  It was going to be one of my others but it managed to sneak into my head and convince me that it’s had enough of a break.  Mini Lost In You will be a focus piece now until it’s finished.  But before I start a new page I have a knitting project to finish.

    How beautiful =) I really love this design and feel a certain itch to buy it 😉

    I knw this effect… I’m stitching something and keep thinking “this looks funny, is this really ok, did I make a mistake, will this turn out as I want it to…”and so on. I take a step away and still think so but when I take a picture SUDDENLY everything looks fine…. I need to unveil this mystery one day!
