Siux is appearing

Siux - April 21st
So what have I been up to lately? 

I have been busy with work which has meant I haven't been able to spend a lot of time working on my blog but I have been able to find bits of time to work on my cross-stitch design which is making me happy.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been able to find bits of time to sit and stitch on this project and make little bits of progress.  The progress on the wings was really slow as they needed quite a bit of editing while I was stitching.  The pattern when I designed it just had too many colours so have been working on removing and editing colour selection.  The other issue was I just couldn't get into working on more purple for a while.

 
Siux - May 11th
So this weekend I decided that it was time to sit down again and focus on making a bit of progress.  The first thing I needed to do was to put the final stitches on her wings and then I could get into other areas.  After completing the wings on Friday I just wanted to stitch to see how much I could get done this weekend.  So Friday and Saturday I worked on her and finally I am seeing some good results.

I didn't work on her at all yesterday as it was Mother's Day.  Hopefully this week I will be able to make some more progress on her as I want to get this piece finished soon.  The other big part of this project is going to be adding some glitter to her wings because I think they need a bit of something.  That might be what I work on part of this week so that I can see how it looks.

So besides working on this piece I have also been crocheting a little bit as well as working on a couple more cross-stitch designs.  Yes my designing is ahead of my stitching right now so need to focus on stitching for a little bit.

Today is another day and I am hoping that I can continue to see Siux come to life.  Time now to work a bit and then sit and stitch this evening.

She is looking really lovely! You've done a great job with the colour selection.
