7/26/11 Wild Thing & Cinderella!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  =)  I hope you all are getting lots of stitching done today!

Since I neglected to put up the progress update on Wild Thing yesterday, I'm just going to post it today along with my most recent work on Cinderella.  I'm really loving switching off projects every other week.  I never seem to get too bored with the current project and picking up the other one wish fresh eyes is a nice treat.

So, here is Wild Thing's most recent progress:


Total progress so far
I didn't get the chance to backstitch him before switching projects, so I'll just save that until later.  The next time I pick this up I'll be moving over to the giraffe (so cute!!).

Moving back to Cinderella yesterday was so nice.  I got some of the sky above the castle filled in and began the task of filling in the castle as well.  It's a LOT of slightly different shades of the same blue, so nothing too interesting.  It really took me looking back on the last update I did to see the difference, so I'll post that up here as well:

Progress as of 7/11/2011
Progress as of today, 7/26/2011
As I'm filling in the castle, I realize that I've missed a few 3/4 stitches where the sky and castle meet, but I don't think I'm going to stress about going back in to put them there.  It's literally only 4 or 5 stitches of the light grey color and that area will have some backstitching over it.  If it is noticeable once the backstitches are done then I guess I'll worry about fixing it then, but for now I'm fine with leaving it. 

I'm off to clean house and drag my two children out to the grocery store later today.  Happy stitching!

I love seeing this lion one grow, it's going to be great waiting to see each animal emerge!

Great work on the sky part as well. Hopefully the stitches won't be needed, but if they are, like you say, you can just sort it at a later time.

Well done!!

your stitching is beautiful !

I wouldn´t worry about the 3/4 stitches either, we tend to forget that only we ourselfs might notice it, becaurse we are always with our noses right on top of it.
if you hold your work at a small distance, I´m sure you´ll not notice they´re missing at all !

Awww, the lion is looking so cute. :D

Cinderella is coming along nicely and I'm with you... once the backstitching goes in, you won't be able to tell where the 3/4 stitches were needed. ;)
