These are the four projects I have going at the moment. I take breaks and do smaller, two or three day projects when my eyes get tired of looking at the color schemes. The Lions one is what I’m currently working on. Should be done in a few days, depending on my drive. The Buddha is for a friend…was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but hey, everyone can’t meet five or six deadlines for the same day with massive projects like that one. The Santa one…well…I pick it up every now and again and do a little bit. The Wolves is for my Father. Gonna alter the pattern a little to add something special to it.
All-in-All…these aren’t that bad. No real issues with any of them yet. Not until I get to the couching with gold metallic for the Santa or the damn french knots in the Wolves one. You’ll hear me complain plenty about that.
Alriiighty then. (God, I can’t believe I just did that. Haha. But, oh well.) So, FINALLY finished with the basic stitching. Just about to start on the backstitching, then I’ll get the couching, and finish with the french knots. This project has been nothing but a bitch the entire time. But I’m almost DONE!!!!!
Well, I’m almost done with the basic stitching. I should have maybe another night or two on it before I start on the backstitching. That should take maybe an hour or two. Then comes the couching….the couching….I am so not looking forward to that. I HATE couching. Then…the french knots. The only thing I can’t stand in this world more than overpriced thread.
Okay, so, I was sick for two days, and completely wrapped up for another two, and managed a few hours total over the other three days on this (I’d say about…oh four. Maybe five. Could be six. I wasn’t counting.) It’s coming along nicely, and I should be done with it soon. Maybe. I’m not looking forward to the couching or the 96 god damnedable french knots. I hate french knots. I really do. They’re easy, but there are always just so god damned MANY of them that I can’t stand to do them! Oh well.
