Nyoops, I forgot to post about my participation in this month's International Hermit & Stitch Weekend before taking part, but I guess I was too excited about it. Here are the results! It looks like more than one person can do, and it is... I had my GF help out a bit and we kind of switched off between these two pieces. :p
Tree of Hope got some love, and now has a ton of leaves on the right side of the tree:
And Sunflower Fairy has something to stand on and the promise of a ton of petals!
I think I'll focus on the fairy until she's done, since I need her framed and ready by early October. Eeep.
Update for Kate (and anyone else who might be curious!): The fabric for both pieces is 32ct raw linen (the color is actually called raw). The fairy's linen has been tea-dyed to be a bit darker, but it's hard to see the difference in the pictures. In real life, the fairy's linen is more brown, while the tree's fabric (not dyed) is slightly grey. :)
