I finally have some WIP progress!
I worked on "L" a little last night to get from here:
to her full leg in Cobbled Peach and her arm, as well as the start of the L:
If you look closely I goofed a little on the curlicue, but it wasn't worth unpicking to me. I started a row too high, so I added another row of curl. I don't have the colours for her dress, I'm waiting on an order from The Wooden Needle, but I do have the colours for the L. I just can't decide if I want to continue on with this or switch to something else.
I also finished the wording on Everyone Brings Joy:
I love stitching fun wording. I have no idea why it feels so satisfying to me, but here we are. I love using WDW Autumn Leaves for the word "leave". I wanted it to stand out. I wasn't a huge fan of the house on the right in the original pattern, but I've had an idea. We live in a one-floor house and have an enormous two-story garage so I'm thinking I might chart our house where the picket fence is in the original pattern and change up the colours and shape of the charted house to be more like a garage.
That will take some work and more importantly time, so this will go back in the WIP bin for a while. I like it, but I'm not up to charting right now. Maybe when things slow down in the summer.
I also have one that's not a WIP, it's another bug finish! I went with red yarn this time in hopes it doesn't get lost. And we've been hiding it from Max. :)
I sew the eyes instead of using the plastic eyes as recommended in the pattern since I'm afraid DD will pull them off. I also created mandibles this time on the bug and DD loves it! She was walking it around the house yesterday saying "Da dum da dum, da dum, da dum". :)
Happy Stitching and thanks for visiting!
