WIP Wednesday

After finishing up Owl #5 over the weekend I went back to Mini Winter Magic. The HAED Challenge is due on June 15, and I still have a lot of stitching to get done by then. I've started the second colour, which is probably 50% or more of the entire page. 

It's Kreinik blending filament and doesn't show up well in my photo, but adds a nice bling to the page:

You can start to make out the structure of the page now, and the vertical blank spot on the left will be a tree branch, as will some of the blank spot on the upper right. The lower half is almost all blending filament! So it will take a bit. It hasn't been too fiddly, but I'm thinking this is a good couple weeks work to complete just that colour. 

Here's the finished piece again so you can compare:

I'm working on the upper right corner currently. 

For my weekly rotation I plan on picking up another owl at the end of the week and then going back to this. That way I can maybe catch up on the owl SAL and finish off this challenge. Wish me luck!

Happy Stitching, 



  1. What a cute project, great progress on it.

  2. I must have owls on the brain! I was thinking that Mini Winter Magic was the Annya Kai's winter owl for some reason! That one is MUCH better!

  3. Nice progress Tiffany. That will be so pretty when done.


  4. I love watching the progress on these large cross-stitch projects. I enjoy watching the picture emerge.

  5. You are having amazing progress on your Heaven and Earth Design.. WOW

  6. Very nice progress. I had forgotten there was a dragon, which is a very good thing.

  7. wow white on white, lovely design, I look forward to seeing the dragon stitched.


  8. This is looking great! I am so eager to see the completed page. What a gorgeous piece and beautiful stitching!

  9. It is a lovely picture. I am anxious to see the completion.
