Gigi's taking shape

I am really enjoying working on Nora Corbett's Gigi, and she is turning out to be a pretty quick stitch. This morning I did the beading on the top part of the chart, and then extended my Q-snaps to fit the rest of the design:

The fabric is a Silkweaver solo on opal Belfast, and I think it's a nice witchy, but still pretty, background for her. I'm hoping to have her done within a week or so.

I want to say thank you to all of you who have left comments; I had 11 on my last post alone! While I started this blog as a way for me to keep track of my projects and actually see progress, it is so much fun to share with other stitchers from all over the world. :)

Hope everyone has a great stitchy weekend!


  1. Hi
    She is so so beautiful.
    I like your blog.
    :-) ciao Giovanna

  2. LOVE this! Love the blues. I have been working on needlepoint lately, but may have to stitch this one!

  3. Gigi is looking great, you are not helping me not buy her LOL

  4. Wonderful progress Melanie. The fabric color is perfect.


  5. She's looking great! I just discovered your blog and finally got through reading all your posts I love all of the ladies/fairies and am excited to see more. I'm finishing up dimensions aurora cabin right now and am starting Joan Elliott's swirling peacock

  6. Wow! Stunning progress already! The colours in the fabric and chart compliment each other so well. I'm already looking forward to your next progress report! :)

  7. Stunning. Love the fabric, and the thread colours really pop off the fabric. It's going to be a very eye-catching piece when finished.

  8. Great progress!
    Gigi is looking good.

  9. Gigi is lovely, and the fabric is gorgeous! What a stunning finish this will be!
