Work in Progress Wednesday - 26 Feb 2014

Just a quickie today to share the current status of the Tudor Lady project.

As you can see, I haven't quite met the goal for February yet, but there are still two and a bit more days to go.  Not only that, but if I don't meet it, it really doesn't matter.=)

Just a row and a bit left to do on the lower left rows of blue and seven or so on the other side.  Yesterday I bought new skeins of the middle two shades of blue.  From the floss toss photo, I see that I had used both skeins before and, looking back through some of my older project photos, I was surprised at how much blue had been called for although not always these particular shades.  The darkest, for instance, was a newly started skein with this piece.  The image is developing nicely and I'm still pleased with it, although I'll be glad to start a new section!!  It's not horribly boring, but I'm ready for a change just the same.

Yes, there's only so much skirt you can do before wanting to do some fur instead!

Pamela said...

The shading of the blues makes the skirt look three dimensional. You've made great progress this week.

Good progress, and I see you have used up a lot of blue thread!

Wendy said...

she's looking great. I get bored doing loads of one colour too, yet if you think about it, that doesn't really make sense, after all, cross stitch is cross stitch whether you're stitching in blue or yellow!
