WIP Wednesday edition ????

One of these days I will count out how many WIP Wednesday posts I actually have made…I probably should number them as I go, to differentiate, but then again, that would eat into stitch time!

Since I last wrote, I’ve done some stitching. It doesn’t feel like a lot, with the reading I’ve done taking over stitch time, and then there was the (semi-wasted) six hours hunting out the perfect chair for the MOTH. I found mine in the second shop we looked at. At about 1/3 price of the ones he is looking at. I feel that I should get the difference added to my Stitch From Stash fund!

With Believe, which is my Stitch MAYnia “whine” piece (it’s too big to hold comfortably, and paper too) I finished the last 7 stitches in the lettering, and started on the background. I should have stitched this on evenweave. Next time! Andromeda is my home/stitch group piece and I’m slowly working my way up the robes. I still haven’t decided on her skin but am learning towards over-one, despite knowing that I would not finish her until August.

andromed-on-antartic-stormAndromeda is stitched on 28ct lugana by Countrystitch in the colour Antarctic Storm. I asked Catherine to dye it slightly heavier & I’m really pleased with how the colours “pop”.

  1. you really are altering the colours quite drastically on this piece. It’ll be interesting to see how your compares with the “original”

    • I thought lilac made her a bit wishy-washy. She might be chained and waiting to see what the Fates have planned, but she’s not a wuss.
      Kathy Watson’s used very similar colours on hers.

  2. I don’t mind perf paper, and for variation now and then, I usually enjoy working on it. But the pieces have to be small — as soon as they get much beyond greeting card size, I’m there to provide some (absolutely not by anyone’s standard) perfectly harmonized whines. πŸ™‚

      • “Oooh, swear at me again. Do you need me to drive on the wrong side of the road again first?”

      • *snort* it rained here today. You’d be forgiven thinking people were all learner drivers or foreign to our side of the road. And I was driving Si’s precious. I dropped a few words into conversations. The fact that the window was up and they couldn’t hear the words means nothing. I translated to sign for their convenience too.

      • Ah, Universal Sign Language. Too bad you were driving, or you could have demonstrated that you’re bifingual. πŸ˜€

        I try not to drive here at all if I can. If there’s no choice, I can do it, but it’s stressful beyond description. I can more or less handle “other side, stupid” now, but traffic circles still bring me to the edge of a breakdown, because I have to enter them what is to me on the wrong side *and* going in the wrong direction. At least three times, I’ve had to pull over because I couldn’t force myself to do what felt 100% to me like a suicide attempt.
