8/2/11 - Cinderella Update (50th Post!)

Who'da thunk it!  Fifty posts!  This blog has been so enjoyable for me to keep up with.  I love watching projects progress and being able to look back and see what's been accomplished.  I only wish there were more hours in the day to finish things!  =)

Here is the latest progress on Cinderella:



The castle is very tedious because of the lack of colors... it's just variations of blues!  It seems I've finally finished that particular color for now and have moved on to blended colors and metallics.  This is the first project I've ever had to work with blending filaments/metallics before and it was an interesting thing to experience.  The stitching definitely goes slower and I'm constantly worried about snags and knots in the threads.  That being said, the photos really don't do the stitches justice -- they are gorgeous!  They shimmer and sparkle, really bringing the castle to life.

This week will be dedicated to working on Wild Thing.  I am not going to be able to have it done by the baby shower (which is this Saturday!) but I want to get moving on it and have it done before the baby is born. 

Happy stitching everyone!

Cinderalla looks great, Lauren. :) Blending filaments are such a pain to work with, but they look so good on a project. :)
