Two updates and a new start

The plan was to work on Mini Lost In you this week and I did get a little bit done; almost half a page.  I’ve got a hand appearing and was a little worried that the hand was too white compared to the detail and shadow of her finger.  I think that I need to get more of it in though and finish off the shading of the bottom of the hand just to make it a little more complete.  I’m probably losing some of the detail through not using the sparkly thread but that thread just annoyed me too much and I would have ended up putting the whole thing to one side.  But I’ve got more shading appearing and I’m feeling a little happier with it and I’m sure it will all look just right once I’ve got their faces in which use the same colours.

I couldn’t leave Whispers alone though so I’ve been putting some stitches in here and there as the mood takes me and I’m almost halfway through page 13.  I did want to stitch more of her over the weekend but it’s been so cold I just couldn’t sit comfortably in my chair without every draught in the house finding me.  It really didn’t help that Grumpy Cat couldn’t make up his mind which room he wanted to be in and kept pushing the door open and letting in another cold draught.

Time to admit to a new start I made on Friday.  Couch Dragon a new release from Heaven and Earth Designs and another Randal Spangler dragon.  I started him on Thursday and got a bit done over the weekend, I’ve put him on the q-snaps so that I can leave Whispers on my big stand and carry on stitching her whenever I want.  It would have worked really well over the weekend if it hadn’t been so cold.  Anyway no picture of Couch Dragon yet, I haven’t done that much at the moment, maybe next week.
