Stitching Saturday: The Land Baby Pt. 4

This is what the finished project is supposed to look like. Notice the subtle shading the artist uses to develop detail and give the painting depth.

Whomever turned the painting into a cross stitch graph did a wonderful job of keeping the subtle shading in the piece as evidenced by the fact I stitched the mermaid’s fanny and didn’t realize it until after I took a picture of what I’ve done so far.

After this little section of 4 different colors, I have 1 1/2 blocks left to stitch before the first column is complete.

While I’m glad I don’t have to do any backstitching to provide details, it’s a bit hard to tell where I’m at when I’m trying to compare the two during stitching. Still, it’s turning out wonderfully so I’m continuing on. 🙂

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

  1. Right now, I’m just lacking the 1/2 block before completing the first column, and I’m still having fun with it. Having big chunks of color in with the confetti helps keep me from getting fed up with changing colors so much. I’m not parking my threads either which I’m sure wastes thread, but I just don’t have the ability to tell what a color is just by looking at it. With stitches this small and close in color, it’s also hard to tell which one it could be. I’m erring on the side of caution to avoid messing up more than I already have.

    I can’t wait to start the short row as a break from the long column as well.
