1/8th Completed

All of my stitching time over the last week has been spent working on Celtic Autumn and I can see some real progress with her. I was getting a little bit fed up of the fiddly bits in the yellow so opted to start on the purple part of her dress which gave me plenty of long stretches in one colour. Despite getting on so well with her I was still surprised to find, when I worked it out last night, that I'd finished 12.5% of her already.




I think she's going to have to go onto my roller frame soon as I don't want to risk crushing the braid in the hoop I'd also like to start putting the beads on so as that I don't end up with them all to stitch on at the end and I don't think they would survive being caught in the hoop.

She's going away now until the weekend and I'm planning on finishing Good Friends Count and getting some more stitches into Love Songs.

This is going to be so lovely, I have often looked at these designs and thought I would never finish!

I like the idea of sewing the beads as you go and not leaving them till the end. I shall pop back and see how you are progressing.. I best get myself moving and do my own stitching instead of reading blogs but they are all so interesting and its lovely to see other stitchers work. Spurs me on.

Great progress - looking forward to watching her develop. :0) Like I much prefer beading (& backstitching)as you go - doesn't seem quite so daunting then. :0)
