The Force was strong with this pattern showing Leia in all of her costumes from Episodes IV-VI. I was weak and couldn't resist. So I started this pattern yesterday!
It's funny, it felt very familiar to start this pattern after all of the people I stitched for the OUAT Alphabet. I missed it! But clearly, I wasn't under the time pressure to get a figure done in a day. Ha! I did have to take another picture to show the really beautiful fabric I'm doing this on:
I'm doing this on 28 Jobelan in Cosmos from Under the Sea Fabrics. I think it's going to look really awesome on this when it's all said and done!
Now, I did have a pattern planned for yesterday as part of my original fifteen chosen for Stitch Maynia. Did I remove it from the list since I started Princess Leia too? Nope. I'll just have sixteen starts in fifteen days! The other pattern I worked on was Let's Do Wine by Ursula Michael.
This was a relatively easy stitch to start on and I had a lot of fun with it! There are several other patterns in this sort of style that I may be adding to my collection, or at least certainly on my wish list. This is where I got to yesterday:
This picture really doesn't do the colors justice. I'm doing this on 32 Lugana in Sorbet from Picture This Plus. It's a really pretty, subtle mottled pink that I think is going to look great when this is done. I also decided that I'm substituting the DMC colors for silks from Mo's Sale. So far, I've used Bordeaux (I thought that was appropriate!), and the rest of the colors will be determined when I get to them!
Whew, I'm tired! Off to take care of a few things today before I start my next Stitch Maynia piece!
Until next time!
