Evangeline's Journey: Episode 8

Day 183: Another Month, Another Post

Hello again and welcome back! As you can see, I have been busy since my last post. I had another pic that I was going to put up here, but by the time I got around to posting the post I had already finished more stitches. And crossed another color off of the list, too!

Anyway, I managed to get past the tree frogging episode. And since some of the hair color was the same as the tree color, I was able to get an 'outline' of the face done as well. The I moved on to planting the flowers. (Pretty, aren't they?) Then I went back to the hem of the dress and got a good bit done there too.

By this point, I thought that it might be a good idea to start working wiht the entire fabric at once, instead of just the 4" circle of my hoop. To that end, I went out and got some Q Snaps and put the project into it. As you can see here, it fit pretty good too. However... (and I really should have listened to Kim on this one) it ended up being rather top heavy and difficult to work with. Oh well, mark another one up to experience... ;-) All in all though things are turning out pretty good. Hard to believe that I have been working on this thing for 6 monthes already! One thing I can say for sure though, is that it is amazing to me how much easier it is to see my progress on a project when I take a picture of it! ;-)

Okay, now for a cute pic...

This one is of my nieces - in - law (I sure hope that is the right way to word that) with the stuffed mascots from where I work. As you can see, the girls loved them!

And speaking of work, I better shut down and head out. Happy Stitchy everyone and I will chat with you all later if not sooner!

Update: In case you had tryed to look at my blog earlier and couldn't get any of the links to cooperate, well... Jessie managed to get it straightened out for me. Thanks Jessie!

Impressive progress and lovely nieces!
The Qsnaps are heavy indeed. I have found a way to make up for their weight: I fold a pillow in two and place it on my knees (not lap) so the qsnap's top lies on the pillow. This way, I can (well, could) even stitch with both hands. Give it a try and tell us what you think.
You have made some real progress there! Love the pics of the girls! So sweet!
