Xstitch, strawberries and Viking ship

Okay, two xstitch updates, the Strawberries and the Viking ship.

Here's the strawberries as of last Friday:


Here it is as of today, 03 March:


Didn't get as much as I'd like. The big difference is that all the bright "strawberry red" is now done.

Meanwhile, over on the Viking ship, last Friday:


And as of today (technically last night since I didn't get anything done on it today):


It might be hard to tell the shading on the one completed rune. On the three uncompleted runes, it's all the same "color" (blended thread set); I just got on a run with them and started doing that color for all the nearby runes. Then I decided to start filling in the bottom left rune, which is in a very similar color/blend. (The interior is a slightly lighter shade of gray, if you can see it.)

I may just try to do the silver-gray on all the runes first and then fill them in. Of course there's a host of fractional stitches that I forget half the time. ^_^;;

On the one hand, I feel like (the same as the strawberries) I didn't get as much done as I'd like; OTOH I think I got quite a lot done. ^_^

They look great. The rune one is going to be so nice when it is finished. Great Job!!

Thank you! :D When you stand away a few feet it looks really nice. I just hope my folks put it somewhere with good lighting! :D

They are looking great! I really like the viking one, but it sure does look like a bear to do ;-) Runes look great!

Thanks! :) The strawberries can be done in pickup phases - pickup, putdown - but the viking requires some real concentration. If I didn't have about 8 loads of laundry to fold tonight, I'd probably put on a tape or DVD that I'd seen many times before and work on the runes. ^_^

Thank you! :) I'm dreading the ship itself. ^^;; It's incredibly complex. So it will be likely close to last!

What is it with the colour differences? I get it all the time, even if the light and setting are the same. Weirdness.

Both are looking good.

Beats me, though I noticed the same thing. I think today's colors are richer. Hope that lasts! ^_^

And thank you!
