Work in Progress Wednesday - 30 April 2014

Here we are again for the Wednesday update and whilst the lightening is flashing and the thunder is rumbling around and sounding like something rolling across the roof at times (good thing I don't mind storms too much, huh?), I can show you my latest WIP photos for my Tudor Lady piece.

After the last update, I got the final row of gold crosses put in on the skirt stripes and then moved on to filling in those on the under skirt design.  I filled them all in except for a couple near the hanging pendant gap, which I wasn't sure about (and, to confess, I was doing this easy bit sitting up in bed without the chart....), and then I discovered that I actually had two pairs of yellow stitches missing!  The arrow marks the spot.  So, I need to get that shade back out and do some filling in!!

Once that bit was done (bar the missing bits), I moved on to the green sleeve sections and have completed one and a half of them.  Getting there, bit by slow bit.

This Work in Progress Wednesday posting is part of the weekly check-in event on Pintangle.  Feel free to join in!

PS: I've almost completed the first butterfly on my other piece.  I'm doing it really quite badly - nothing like well enough to make a gift or a card of, so I'll be mounting the finished piece as a little decoration for my own study wall.=)  Anyway, just thought some readers might like to know that I'm getting on with it now....  I've been doing a little on each project for most of the last few days.  Is life normalising?  Well, it's crazy enough to be normal, I suppose!!LOL!

Your lady is getting better and better dressed! Well done to spot the missing stitches. I hope you still have the thread needed.
We've had some thunder and lightning here in Tokyo, too.

the lady is progressing greatly. I like your idea of doing a few things in week. you can take rest from one project by moving on to another, when you tire of it move on to another one.

I think it is going well, and I like the idea that life may be mad enough to be normal again!
