...has been done in the past couple of weeks, as first my son and then I got knocked out by the flu. During the worst of it, I didn't get out of pajamas for four days, and pretty much lived in bed or in the recliner. I'm still trying to get over the coughing part of it, but have once again joined the land of the living (and stitching!).
What stitching I have been able to complete since my last post has been on a model, so no pictures to share of that. However, yesterday I picked up my framed Gypsy Queen and I am just so in love with the finished piece:
I chose a sueded outer mat and a metallic inner mat, and the frame itself is brushed with a couple of colors found in the design:
I also had one of Nora's paintings framed, and I think it's stunning:
These two pieces have already joined my ever-growing guest room gallery:
I still haven't had the nerve (or the time) to start my HAED yet, but I now have another one that I'd really love to work on. A kind member of the 123Stitch MB had a giveaway for the winner's choice of a chart, and I won! My favorite artist there is Aimee Stewart, and she had recently released a chart called A Stitch in Time, which I fell in love with. I couldn't bring myself to buy it, since I hadn't even started the other one I already had kitted up, but winning it is a totally different thing!
I got the maximum color version, which uses 237 different colors; I am very tempted to kit this one up and start it before I start Foxglove Ball. However, before I do either I need to finish the model, so I guess I'd better get to work.
Hope everyone has a great stitchy weekend!
