Work in Progress Wednesday - 7 May 2014

Here's my Work in Progress Wednesday report and the latest on my cross stitch piece.  I've now finished all the Marlitt cross stitch on both the sleeves and the headdress - that layer of gold coloured stitches is rayon.  I still need that shade for some of the satin stitch squares filling in the gaps in the yellow skirt section.

Next job is to get back to the shawl, which I'm not looking forward to - probably as I found it rather hard the first time.  It should be a smoother process now that the green sleeve sections are done and I don't have to work around a gap.  I just need to get on with it and see it working out OK!!

I hope this month to complete the shawl and also to insert the face and hands.  That will be a challenge as some of the abutting fractional stitches may not allow for the petit point stitches to fit in smoothly.  So, there may be some alterations to make there.  We shall see soon enough...

I love the green on the sleeves it's so vibrant. I'm sure the shawl will be easier now the sleeves are done. It's looking fantastic

Looking good. I hope the Marlitt is looking good enough to you to make up for being a pain to stitch with!
