A wet weekend's work...

I was going to stitch on Winter's Eve this weekend for the stitchathon on the Friends Gather board, but Tomboy was giving me a 'don't you dare ignore me' look, and I ended up working on her from Friday afternoon through to Sunday night! I did a few rows of sky (not that you can really tell) and a lot of the princess herself. (As usual - the edge is straight but the photo was taken at an angle)


At one point I have to admit she looked a little weird - all head and chest. It looked as if she was going to be an armless nude! I had to do the bit of dress across her front as fast as possible, and then more hair so she looked less odd. I love how the dress is coming out...


It's on to bits and pieces now this week. I've got a gift that's nearly finished and I'm halfway through my summer exchange. I've got my partner's name for the house exchange too. I'd like to get the first two finished this week and make a good start on the house exchange! It's cold and wet and windy and really wintery here, so a good time for stitching.

  6. I saw your post a week ago, and just realised I still haven't commented ... duh! Just wanted to say I think Tomboy looks absolutely stunning - if she had legs she could walk off the fabric ;) Your latest TW RR looks great too :D
