The last three weeks seem to have passed very quickly! I’ve been working a bit on my Finery of Nature cross-stitch, this is a Dimensions kit I started ages ago, I found it on the sales table at my Embroiderers Guild so it just required a donation and it was mine. I think someone was probably put off by the fact it was on black linen, I just changed it to soft green instead, which has meant a couple of colour changes, but nothing major.
Three weeks ago I was making good progress with the hummingbird…
Well, I didn’t think I’d done that much as I’ve been a bit distracted by other projects, but comparing photos, I’ve done OK! I’ve finished the cross-stitch on the humming bird, though there is still quite a bit of back-stitch to do, I think he’s gorgeous already!
I’ve started the flowers that surround him, they’re a bit bitty to stitch as there’s like two stitches in one colour, three in another – lots of stopping and starting, but I’m getting there! I tend to start in one area with a certain colour, if there’s thread left I will see if there’s another leaf or flower I can reasonably count to and I’ll do that too. Hence the odd areas of stitching!
