Girl from Alhambra Update

Oh my! Can you believe it - two weeks since my last post! In between work and the computer being upgraded and reinstalled and all that 'stuff' I haven't had a lot of stitching and blogging time. Hopefully I will be getting more done in the future :)

Here is an update pic of my Girl from Alhambra by the Solaria Gallery:
She has all her 'features' now - she looked really strange when she had only one eye ;) I am still loving this project and hope to finish it within the next few weeks.

Have a great week with lots of stitching!

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!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone - I hope it will be a healthy and prosperous year filled with lots of stitching!

I had a new start over the holidays - it is 'Girl from Alhambra' by Stoyanka Ivanova of the Solaria Gallery. I absolutely love this piece and it is really fun now that I have started work on her face!
Here is what the end product should look like - isn't she beautiful?
I still have this week off before I go back to work - lucky me!
Have a great week and Happy Stitching!
