New Start For January

I’ve moved on to page 12 of my Pokemon picture which is coming along nicely this week, here’s my progress since last Saturday:

Pokemon page 12 Update 1

The lighting is terrible as always, I only get time to stitch after dark these days! Roll on Summer and the shorter nights – and with that in mind, the new piece I’ve started is a Summer Sampler from the World of Cross Stitching magazine. I’ve got a beautiful piece of hand dyed evenweave from a Polstitches grab bag – why does Polstitches fabric always smell so amazing? – that looks like a summer sky, bright blue with just a hint of fluffy white clouds.

I’ve only stitched a couple of hours on this so far, but it’s cheering me right up!

Hurry up Spring, I believe in you! I remember a time when I could still feel my fingers and toes without thermals being required!

Magnum Opus – Update 7

I’ve finished the next page of my giant Pokemon wall hanging!

Pokemon Pattern update 7

This one features some spooky ghosts and a couple of birds. I liked all the shades of purple in this section, but I admit to getting quite bored of brown before the end! The whole thing is almost halfway done now, we’ve reached the midpoint in terms of height.

Pokemon Update 7 - Full

I may yet finish it before I turn 30! These creases are going to be hell to get out though when the time eventually comes…
