Bugs & Firefly Fairies
I finished the bottom part of the border on bugs and I am now on to the second corner. The stitching is going slower than I thought it would. It is a little frustrating but I will persevere with it. Plus I do like the way the border looks. It also makes the design seem smaller. I will be working on the border for the next few weeks. I think it will take longer than I initially thought to stitch.
Yesterday I worked on the Firefly fairies. I have almost finished with one shade of the dress. This one feels like it is stitching quite quickly although I actually spent less time on it. I like working with colour I think that might be the reason. There is still quite a bit to go on this fairy so it will be a while yet before I finish her.
Today I am back to the snowmen. With any luck I will have a face to show you tomorrow (thanks for all your comments on the snowmen). Tomorrow will also be spent on Wizard potions. It feels like it has been a while since I did any work on him.
Your firefly fairies is stitched with the most wonderful colours... Btw, I was just wondering: do you use a hoop or frame? And do you scan or take pics of your progress?
Lots of hugs!
