I know it doesn’t look like much, but it took me some time to do this bit. It’s 40 stitches from top to bottom and 135 stitches from left to right. This is the top of the left hand side of the pattern. It’s been split in left and right sides of the original painting, and I’ve begun with the left side.
My plan, now that I have it done left to right, is to start working down the left side of the piece until I get to the bottom. I’ll be doing it in blocks of 40 stitches wide and tall.
This is being done on 16ct white Aida using 2 strands of DMC Moline floss.
I am missing colors, and I’m waiting for them to come in the mail. I had to order them because the local shops don’t have much variety of colors in their floss.
This is going to be an ongoing project.
This is Mimi Queen of Fluff sleeping on the small start on the Mystery Sampler Stitch-A-Long being hosted by Fox and Rabbit. I can show you this part of it, but you’ll have to wait to see the rest of it. 🙂
I am working the outer frame right now. I’m using DMC 415 and Artiste Metallic Silver – one strand of each. It’s slow going because I’m using short strands of thread and double checking my counting. Frogging metallic thread is not the best thing to do.
That’s it for my stitching progress this week. I hope to have more to show you next week – if I’m able to get the floss I’m still missing.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
