A Page Finish..........

I have spent the last week working on a "Sin"..........

I really enjoyed this page.......It had a little bit of background and a little bit of dress.

When I finished today, I gave it a quick refresh with the Iron then put it over the back of the couch to take the photo's and I have to admit from a distance it looks so good. Michelle at HAED does such a great job in the charting, because when you are stitching up close, You think how does that colour work, and by gosh it does!

"Lust" Pg 8 1st July
And the whole picture so far.........

"Lust"
So page 8 was a weeks worth of stitching......So the total so far........54,115 ,Which means 185,885 to go LOL!

And just so we can remember what the end goal is.....

"Lust"
So that's it for now! Also a Big Welcome to my new followers!

Happy Stitching All!

Love the work you've done so far on your "Sin"! I have no idea how you manage to stitch so fast and still have your work look so beautiful!

Beautiful. My friend is about to start this and I am about to start Avarice. I agree, the colours int he charting seem a bit unworkable but it so comes together in the end.

I knew it was Lust!!! YAY! Congrats on your page finish. I agree with you about the charting over at HAED, that's all I stitch anymore. Lust is gorgeous, what's up next?

This looks fantastic!! I've never done a HAED design, but I'm seriously considering picking one up after seeing how beautiful they look once they are done.

Looks great! I'm stitching this "Sin" too and need to get stitching faster. I'm about 1/4th of the way through page 10. While stitchine page 8, I wasn't happy with that arm, but once it is done, it looks great!

Looks brilliant, I wasn't sure of this when it came out, but now I'm seeing it stitch up it's looking incredible.
I know what you mean about the colours, I've done that a couple of times, thinking they look odd, but when you take a step back or put the final colour in it suddenly all comes together.

This is going to be beautiful when it is done. You have the patience of an angel to work on these big 100% covered designs.

Aaaah it wasn't Envy as I predicted. But Lust is suck a beautiful design, I've been thinking about starting her next, but I cannot descide between her and Sloth and Wrath.

Such a beautiful progress, I love how you can see so many details.

Not everywhere on the net that you can write "spent this week working on LUST" - got to love stitching - particularly as you are going to start Sloth next...you deserve a rest
