Girl from Alhambra and some Fabric!

Here we are in the second week of January and here is my progress on Girl from Alhambra! She now has a mouth and you can see her nose forming - it is really so exciting to see a face emerging as you work!

I am enjoying this piece so much, I haven't even thought of what I am going to stitch next - I suppose it should be one of my WIPs and I should try to finish it (lol).
I coloured some fabric during my holiday - I don't have a specific use for it yet, but you never know!
I love the blue and the darker natural - maybe I'll find something to stitch on it soon.
I have just heard that it is going to be 36 degrees Celsius tomorrow! Our summer is really here now! (Please wish me luck - I don't like the heat.)

Have a great week and Happy Stitching!

I love your Alhambra Girl and also the fabric, I have never tried dying my own but seeing yours I might give it a try.

Alhambra looks great. And your fabric is lovely. The lavender and the blue look so soft and pretty.

I only wish it was 36C. I'll swap my -20C anyway!

It looks so beautifull, and I love the dyings. I wouldn't try it myself, I'm to scared to mess up my fabrics.

Wow--you have made a lot of progress on her, Michelle! 36C--I'm jealous! We have had below freezing temperatures since January 1st...

I've been thinking about dyeing some fabric myself--what did you use?

You have made good progress. She already looks really lovely.
Nice dye job!
Good luck with the heat! I don't like heat too. Here it's snowy and freezing a bit. But no wind. I really like it. What can I say? I'm a winter person.
