IHSW - September :D

It's a conspiracy!  I didn't work on Lovers on Thursday; I worked more on the little Brave, because Monday was free and clear for a long, lovely stitch-fest.

Then I got called in to work. So instead of Friday, Saturday, Sunday and then freedom! an extra day got eaten up.

*insert wail here*

At least my paycheck will be nicer XD

Here's how Lovers did look:

And how they look now:

I think I finished up most of the background.  His profile stands out clearly, of course, but right now he looks ready to kiss the Wicked Witch of the West!  There are a few stitches that are prolly background, and a big chunk under her chin that confused me until I remembered his hand was there.  But I did finally start a few stitches of his hair - so I feel all accomplished, lol!  Even though I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted.

Today at work, I took the Ghost Cat in the Chair (I thought ghost!cat, too, rosey! even thought about doing a pale grey outline, but I didn't feel like doing the half cross of the chair and cushion he would have needed behind him to look all invisible!) and finished up all the crosses.  I started the backstitch - beyond the rug, of course - but not until after I took the picture.  The next time I post about this, it will be with a finish!

I took Christmas Bells along, too, but lately they have just gotten no love at all.  They're so little, and yet I have done only a few stitches when they could be another wee finish.  Oh, well.  Soon.

  2. You can definitely see outlines on Lovers, though I must admit, I laughed at your Wicked Witch of the West comment!

  3. Love the cat piece. And Lovers is coming along nicely. Work is such a spoiler, isn't it?

  5. Oh, that looks like a ton of stitching on Lovers! Even if you lost a day, the ones where you did stitch appear to have been productive.

  6. Awww, no more ghost cat but I suppose an orange fluffy is okay too! The half stitches would've looked awesome though, haha.

    LOL at the Lovers. Poor lady, being the Wicked Witch! XD
