For the last week, I've been working on my first project for the Whine and WIPs SAL in Stitch Maynia, Angel of Compassion from HAED.
I've been working one hour a day on the piece each day before I do any other stitching. This is where I started back on July 1st:
And here is where I ended up seven hours of work later:
Yes, it was seven hours entirely of Kreinik for this piece, but I'm really happy with the progress I made on it! I don't feel nearly as intimidated by this piece as I did when I started it for Whine and WIPs, even if I'm not done with the first page yet. There's a lot more there than there was before! I will be starting another Whine and WIPs piece today and will share what a week of working on it will bring next week!
I also worked on Let's Do Wine by Ursula Michael yesterday:
This piece goes very quickly and makes me think I will enjoy a blackwork piece if and when I delve into that. Here is where I stopped yesterday:
I'm doing this on 32 Lugana in Sorbet from Picture This Plus using silks from Mo's Sale. I really enjoyed working on this piece and am looking forward to it coming back up on the rotation!
Until next time!
