Progress Photos 10/19 Girl With a Pearl Earring

This week I focused on my current project "Girl with a Pearl Earring."

Here is where I was as of last week...

This week I had one tiny snafu when I used the wrong color in part of my stitching.  Here is where I was when I realized that I used a yellowish color instead of the blue.  But in my defense the chart symbols for both colors are the same they just have a diagonal line in a box going in DIFFERENT directions...oh well c'est la vie!


Once I fixed that problem here is where I ended this week at stitch wise.

I am getting closer to finishing this page!  I finished the Pearl Earring, the girl's collar and most of her blouse.  Now I just have to finish up part of her scarf that cascades down on the right side of the page and then her blue head scarf to finish Page 5!  One thing I have realized though is that I can only stitch the brownish black floss on black fabric during daylight hours because otherwise I can't see where I stitched...

I really feel like this project is at the stage where the momentum is pulling me along to work on it more...but I think I am going to have to take a break to start other projects.  I have one project that really is this close to being done that I would like to complete, and then I need to start my family's Christmas stockings to hang up on our fireplace this year.  I am super excited because this is the first time I have ever lived in a home with a fireplace (and we are lucky to have two fireplaces in our apartment)!
Happy Friday!
