I have only the dark grey and black left to do on him, then it's on to the half-stiches and backstitching. Yay!
Mary Wigham has her first two motifs:
This is the first time I've ever stitched a reproduction sampler, and I have to admit, leaving in the mistakes is killing me! The ones in the coral-color weren't too bad, but the missing stitches of the 'pinwheel' in the yellow is driving me batty. I dunno if you guys can see it - I may have made the pic too small - but one of the - blades? petals? - is missing a stitch on the end of its two bottom rows. I've seen other stitchers' WIP pics and some have corrected it - I may end up having to do it even though it lowers the authentic-matching look. Ah, well, it's not like I stayed true to the original with the fabric color, right?
I also forgot to post my UFO progress for June - I got out my anime pattern of Kurama (from the anime/manga Yu Yu Hakusho) Here's his Before & After shots - I did much more than 100 stitches on him :D
His mouth & chin need some serious tweaking next time I pick him up. I made this pattern when I first got the software, and I didn't really know what I was doing. Wufei looks much better.
