Weekly Craft Update

I'm getting a lot done, despite only a few hours this week.

This was last week's progress:

This week, I got almost all of the second quarter done.

I need to figure out a particular purple. I don't have a good match for the purple in the peacock's tail out of the threads I already have, so I need to raid the DMC stash. Once I get that, I can finish the peacock.

On the downside, this is just going to fit on the fabric left to right, and I should've started maybe an inch downward. It's going to really be tight on the top. :/ The whole thing is going to be a real PITA to frame.

The next step (of course) is to do the bottom half. I'll be honest, what I'm really looking forward to is adding the text at the bottom, because I charted the text myself. But I can't work on that 'til the rest is done!

Interesting to note: maybe it's because of the basic geometric shapes, but this has one of the neatest backs I've ever stitched.

I love the effect of those intense colors on the black background.

Thanks for showing the back. It is very neat, and I love getting an occasional peek at the underbelly of crafts.

I think it's going to look really nice. I have no idea how to get it framed yet, but that can wait until I know what the final size is going to be. The design is one size, but I'm adding text, so...

I don't normally take pictures of the backs, because they can get pretty messy thanks to confetti stitches and irregular shapes. But this one looks remarkably neat and ordered.

That's looking really striking. I love it :)

Thanks! Yes, it's been a while since I worked on black. ;) The bright video-game colors really make it stand out.

These are using the Anna Maria threads you gave me a couple years back, except for two DMCs when the AM didn't have the right shade. :)

Odd design, but I love the vibrancy of the colours on the black.
