Back to the large projects.

Hi folks! I am now working on a very large project. I'm stitching on a shirt and I am doing the text of Beowulf on it. So far, it's coming along very nicely, and stitching over paint has been interesting. More later.

Sharing something I found

I don't often share links, but this struck me as interesting.

Stage 2 done!

Well, my goal of finishing this piece in 24 hours, has sailed off into the distance. I had an epiphany last night, and I'm adding in some leaves. I'll have a picture, later.
Happy stitching, everyone!

Main part done, 26 hours

I've given the stitching a nice bath. That spiffed (no auto correct,  I will never want to type 'spiff ed') up the french knots, nicely. Time to add the pearls, and maybe some opals.

Hour 19 of the 24 hour project

Hi folks! I'm back at the studio, and feeling better.  The gold border is done, and the dark purple french knots are put in next to the fleurs-de-lis. Time to finish up the black french knots,  and the black border, and it's into its bath. (After its bathtime I'll add the pearls, and maybe opals.)

24 hour project

Well, this project is going to take 24 hours total. So far there are 12 and a half hours of stitching in this. Today the goal is to get it done, or at least mostly done. Wish me luck.

5 & 1/2 hours of stitching

This is coming along nicely. My goal for the day is to finish the fronts.
