Friday Update

I think I'm learning as I continue to make my stay at home mom routine that twice a week posting on the blog of my updates on stitching is a good schedule for me - once going into the weekend, and once after the weekend! I definitely don't feel the pressure to post daily like I once did especially if I don't stitch everyday, and it's fun to see how far I come along in a piece over several days!

Rapunzel has stayed in my hoop this week. Don't see her being switched out anytime soon, I'm just in love with this piece, though I will admit as I am starting to visit other blogs again I have several WIP's that are starting to call my name again. So we will just have to wait and see how long she keeps my interest!

Here is Rapunzel's progress for the week:

The skin 1x1 went very smoothly and I love the way it looks on her! I don't do any backstitching until all crosses are done, but she definitely has a face now!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!

Until next time!

  1. You've made fantastic progress on this piece and it's looking beautiful already. I can understand why she is keeping you interested.

  2. Wonderful progress Katy. What a beautiful design.


  3. Great job! Can I ask what colour fabric you are using? It looks purplish in the top photo and blue in the bottom - I can't decide which looks better before I choose my own!

    1. Sure! My phone isn't great at taking pics which partially is responsible for the color variations in pictures, but the fabric is 28 ct. Jobelan in Isolde by Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie. You can find it here - - it's a lavender/blueish/pinkish combo that is just beautiful in person!

  4. She's lovely. Love this series and want to stitch all of them one day, but in the mean time I'm loving watching other people stitch them

  5. She is so pretty. I would love to do her after I finish Cinderella.

  6. She looks beautiful! You're right about the 1x1 stitching on her skin. :D

  7. This is a beautiful Fabric choice - she is just lovely
