Stitching Updates.





I haven't done any of these for awhile - sorry about that.
The last time I updated I was giving a new start a turn on my rotation and that was Desert Guardian by Kustom Krafts.


MMMM not much stitching for a week, never mind at least I got to do some. It doesn't show up in the photo very well, but I am stitching this on a pale blue hand dyed fabric with small patches of white to look like the sky.


The next project to get some attention was my Fractal. A new one of these is posted on http://www.xs-collectibles.com/index.aspx every month. I am not sure how long ago mine was on the site, and I do not have a full color picture of it either. It is in predominately purples, blues and black, but in the centre it changes to greens and yellows. You will need to use your imagination and take my word for it until I get LOTS more stitched, how many years have you got? LOL.




Here is one photo of the whole project and a close up, and below, I hope its below, is a picture of where I finished with it on this rotation.



It is a bit sad, but I don't think that you can see any progress in the photos (sniff, sniff). It is there, I promise. Hopefully I will be able to get better pictures next time this one comes up.













Next up in my rotation is Gypsy Rose, this is one that I am really enjoying at the moment and I will post before and after photos when the rotation finishes on Sunday night.


My order from The Silver Needle arrived last week, but with everything going on I have forgotten to mention it. I have not put any of it away yet and will post pictures before I do in the next day or so.

I also want to reply to some comments from my past posts, so I will try to do this also.


Happy stitching everyone and stay safe.

I have seen alot of fractal designs on site. Do they looked sharper even up-close or it looks sharper if view from far?

Jenna said...

One of my Thursday Stitching group has two fractals and I find them intriguing. She only has one started so far and I think she is hoping to convince one of us to go that route with her too. Your progress is very enabling to someone who is wavering on the brink of doing one!

Kathy said...

Wow, what a brave person you are. That looks stunning. I could not imagine even thinking of tackling something like that. Way to go!

Hi Joanne, thank you for the nice comment on my Autumn Sampler. Your stitching is lovely and I have added you to my reader so that I can check back here.

Hi Joanne,
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment on the Calico Roads black cats. I've had a quick look here and am blown away by your cross stitching! I don't know what a fractal is, but I do know I'll never attempt it!
Cheers,
