The Waiting - The Black above the clouds

Not far to go! I am going to have to get a couple of more colours to finish the clouds. I am working on the stars at the moment.

The Waiting - The earth appears

I have finished the earth in the sky. It was a heap of confetti but it didn't take me as long as I thought it would...I have also completed most of the next page as well. I am about halfway across so I have about 3 pages to go...

The Waiting Update

I have reached the top! It was a fairly easy page...the next one has the earth on it so it will take me longer to do as there is heaps of confetti...

The Waiting Update

I have nearly completed the 1 and a half pages that were left on the second last row of pages. I have run out of one of the colours, a dark grey and you can see the spaces where I need that colour to fill it in. I am waiting until I run out of a couple of more colours before I order more as it is more economical to order 3 than 1.

I still have a few more squares that I can do. But I wanted to update the blog today and it is starting to get dark here and the photos turn out better with some daylight...

The Waiting

I have had a sore back lately and I haven't been able to sit at the computer for long periods like I usually do, so I have been cross stitching for hours every day! I finished another page a couple of day ago, except for an orange colour DMC 722 which I have run out of. I have ordered another one and I am waiting for it to come in the mail.

I have also been working on the next pages as well...there are less than 8 pages to go!

Another page done, 10 pages to go!

I'm getting there! Also I have decided which project I am going to do next and I managed to buy the chart from Heaven and Earth Designs for 25% off...

I like it because it's the pair to the one I am doing and they will look magnificent together:

Another update

I last updated 6 days ago and I have done a fair bit since then! I finished the half page on the right and I have nearly completed the whole row of pages...

The Waiting Update

More progress! I'm finding the page I am doing at the moment more difficult and it is slower going. But I will get there!

The Waiting Progress

I was going to wait until I finished the next page to update again but it has taken me longer than I expected to complete. I had to do the light purple colour up into the pages above the one I'm doing so it didn't form a line.

I have completed a fair bit of the page though and next update I should have finished it. I really don't like the page I am on for some reason. I ran out of a pinkish colour 3722 so I have ordered that off ebay and I am waiting for that to arrive.

Anyway, I have made good progress so I thought I'd post. :)

The Waiting Update

Here is another update, I have finished yet another page! Sorry for the poorer quality photos. It's 2am here so the light is not as good. Yes, I have stayed up until 2am to finish the page! This is such a joy to stitch. I have about 12 pages + 3 half pages of the chart to do so there is a way to go yet!

I have been working on the background above the tiger and also done heaps of confetti on the thicker lightning to the right...

Flower Bookmark - Mini Cross Stitch

I took a break from the HAED a while ago and did this mini flower bookmark. I like it and it looks better than how it shows on the photo...

The Waiting Update

I have made some progress on the right side. I am currently working on a small white tiger cross stitch as it is a gift for a friend.

Update of The Waiting

I have done quite a lot since the last update, working at it steadily each day. I finished off about 3 pages down the bottom and am now working on the tedious dark blue and black area background. Then I will do the confetti lightening in the spaces...

The Waiting Update

I completed the page with most of the tigers head. I have been having disrupted sleep lately so I have been tired so I have been doing a lot of the black because it is easier... I can't wait to finish the tigers head but there is a way to go including more confetti!

Friday, January 15, 2010

The Waiting Update

I have done heaps more work on the tiger, I have completed all the confetti in the whiskers. Now I am working on the confetti above his eye and the upper part of his head...
