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!!

    Oh my gosh, those stitches are SO TINY!!

    I always wonder how you keep things progressing in such a nice rectangle. Do you have a lot of threads all started in the back, or do you only stitch a little bit of a color each time you use the thread?

    I only stitch one thread at a time, i just pick a colour which there are lots of stitches of in that area and do that either until the thread runs out or until i run out of stitches of that colour. I try to fill in all the stitches in an area before moving onto a new area. But i only cut the thread in fairly short lengths (5 or 6 inches) so i don’t do that many stitches of each colour at a time, maybe 20 stitches maximum.

    I think you’re so brave to take this on with such tiny stitches! I have HAED project to start sometime in the future, but decided to stick to 18ct Aida. I loved how your Woodland Enchantress turned out, so much so that I ordered the kit and am waiting to get it in the mail. It will have to wait a while though, as I have some other projects in line 🙂

    Thanks both of you. Yeah they are very addictive, which one did you do Maxine?

    Samira, i’m really glad you’re going to do the woodland enchantress, it’s great to know i’m inspiring people to do things.
