December update before the holidays

Hi all!

Hope you are all busy preparing for the holidays.

The stitching has gone steadily. But I do feel a bit of exhaustion of my interest on my current project. I suppose it is due to the fact that the parts that I am now stitching are really abstract, splashes of colour which look great but do not reveal anything concrete (well, that is the meaning of abstract, right?!).

It might also be due to the fact that I have bought as early Christmas gifts to myself two beautiful kits, which just want to get started. I will resist as long as I can. Too bad (or is it really) that I don't have two frames!

I am trying to keep the progress steady though. So here you go:



I wish you all very pleasant holidays.

Take care,

December first update

Hi everyone!

Thank you so much for stopping by and the kind words your are leaving behind. It is true that this piece of stitching is extremely fun. I think one of the reason I love cross stitch so much is the play with colours. And this chart is exactly a dream come true.
Without further ado, progress pictures, tadam!



I am very happy as the stitching is progressing steadily. At the end of this row, I will have done half of the pattern (to tell you the truth, this half is composed of lot of partial pages, but we won't be stopped by these tiny details, will we? ;))

The only regret is that stitching is so compulsive these days, it takes time out of reading. But can't help it!

Before leaving you, I owe a huge thank to one blogger; the sad thing is I can't remember where I read it and what blog it is. But thanks to the wonderful advice I found there, my stitching has become more efficient. The kind blogger was explaining how you can use your tablet to highlight one symbol after another. And that's what I do now, it saves me the time (huge amount of time) spent on searching for the same symbol. So, thank you, thank you so much dear blogger.

I wish you all a pleasant week and thank you for sharing your work on the blog world, I always enjoy looking at them. Thanks!

Take care,
