There has been more progress since this picture, but the pictures didn’t turn out very well (since she is now very wrinkly with hoop-outlines). I can’t wait til this stage is done so I can smooth her out with some ironing.
…because it’s not like I already have a half-dozen unfinished projects waiting for completion…
The drawing from the last post was itching to become something more.
Tracing on the lightbox.
Hooping it up.
Tonight’s progress. I am interested to see if this pans out as I am envisioning. Should be interesting nonetheless.
Last year, I ordered the Rouge du Rhin Roses de Neiges kit from The French Needle. I decided to make a practice version first to learn any new stitches, before tackling the beautiful whitework version.
So, naturally, I decided to go with variegated threads in a rainbow wheel.
Unfortunately, the piece lost momentum and was set aside during the move to the new apartment.
But, I have found it and am working on the last two segments — purple and pink. Once those are done, I’ll remove the interfacing (used for tracing), and decide how I want to mount/frame it. Perhaps in a hoop.
This was also from a while back, made for a friend.
NOT an original pattern; unfortunately, cannot find the pattern’s creator to properly credit. :/
