Happy Friday everyone! Welcome to my new followers and special Happy Birthday wishes to one of my followers ;).
I have some great progress to show you this week. Here is where I was at the beginning of last week on Girl with a Pearl Earring...
And here is where I am today with MY FIRST PAGE FINISH EVER!!
Before now I haven't worked on any designs that were in page formats but so far I like it because it breaks the design down into manageable pieces and goals. I really can't believe how much I finished this week.
Here is a little bit of a closer view where you can see some more detail.
At first it was hard for me to stop using the floss at the end of the page limit if I still had more left on my needle, especially if it was a single confetti stitch. Normally I would just work as much of a color as I could over the whole design but I must say I do like the result of having in this case 1/9th of the design completely finished! Here is an image of the finished page next to my completely highlighted chart page.
I feel that with highlighting the stitches on the chart after I complete them and by using the gridding method I have made only TWO mistakes in this whole section which by my usual ratio is pretty good.
Now I need to set this project aside so I can finish up an old one that is so close to being finished and start making some Christmas stockings for this year. I hope I will have some progress on those to show you next week. When they are finished then I think I will come back to this project and maybe do the difficult page below that is completely covered in stitching without any open space like page 5 had...but we shall see.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and that you can enjoy the beautiful fall or winter weather wherever you are in the world!
