I started on Faery Faces 66 on Friday but only had an hour and a half. But still I was desperate to get started.
As a writer I am what is called a pantster, in as much as I get started straight away and make it up as I go along. The planners research and prepare character profiles etc. before they start. I envy planners. But my mojo overwhelms me and I have to strike whilst the iron is hot and so I did...but with the stitching.
Here is Friday's progress..
And you can see the extent of my gridding, I have started on page 2, and the only other method I use is the loop method which I use for two reasons,
1. It's easier to pull a single strand from the skein.
2. The back is less bumpy...evidence below...
Saturday I wanted to stitch but life got in the way, but when evening came I was able to get some stitches in and again on Sunday. Here is my final progress from Sunday night:
I never finished the shell pink because I went to the loo and when I returned 225 had done a runner! So that's paused for the moment and I continued with other colours.
When I was stitching the dark colours I had a moment of...what the hell is this going to look like...but then I remembered keebs wise words regarding trusting the pattern and am pleased to say that it is now more convincing.
So this evening I will stitch on...
Oh, and my stitching was accompanied by Hemlock Grove, Granite Flats & Residue.
