Max’s Moon Update

I’ve been working on Max’s Moon a bit lately, and (fingers crossed) my hands seem to be ok with the fabric now.  For those who don’t know, the fabric made lots of red dots appear on my hands, so i tried washing it and it seems to have solved the problem.  As you can see, Max now has some back legs, and even a bit of something to stand on.  The black fabric isn’t too bad to work on, although i’m glad i did the “back end” of Max first as now i have the fun bit still to look forward to.


If you can’t remember what the finished piece will look like, click on the “Max’s Moon” link in the list on the right hand side of the page and it will take you to all the posts i’ve made about Max.



This isn’t one that i’m working on, it is my boyfriend’s cross stitch and i’d like to share it with you because i think he’s making great progress on it and it’s a beautiful design.  It’s called Astrology and is by Design Works.  It is stitched on 14 count aida, and the finished piece will have lots of gold metallic thread on it.  This is what the finished piece will look like:

And this is his progress so far:

The Awakening Update Three

I’m sorry this project isn’t coming along very fast, although i have done a lot of stitches.  Hopefully you’ll now be able to see the tree branches a bit more clearly, and some of the sky (which has some really lovely pink and purple colours in it).  Sorry the quality of the pictures isn’t too good this time, i’m having a bit of a problem with the sun.


And for those of you who want to see a close up of the little tiny stitches, here you go:


I have also added a new page onto the blog where you can see my previous finished cross stitch projects (just click on the link on the right which says Finished Projects).  So if you haven’t seen my other pieces then you can have a look on there.  As usual, comments and motivation always welcome!!
