With a new year come new starts! I've joined two SALs on Facebook, so today was filled with stitching!
First is Nora Corbett's lovely Bluebell pixie. I'm stitching her on 32ct linen from Picture This Plus, in the pretty Carnival color. It's a mix of orangey pink and a bit of yellow and brown.
Here's how far I got... and how she'll look when she's finished! I changed her lightest blue to a slightly darker color. I didn't like the massive contrast, and the other "blue" was a little too green to fit with the rest of the colors in my opinion...
My second start was Transcendence by HAED, featuring artwork by Adele Sessler. This is the BAP version, so it's going to take a looooong time. :p Plus I'm stitching on BLACK like a crazy person. Literally over half of the stitches in this design are black, and there was no way I was doing all that!
I'm tenting 2 strands over 1 on 28 count, and I'm pretty pleased with the coverage. It's not all that beautiful if you look at it up close, but it's not meant to be looked at up close, so there!
Sorry about the flash on the top pic and the blurriness of the bottom pic!
Doesn't look like much, does it? But I know he'll be gorgeous... :D
