The Lights of Home Progress

I have completed yet another page! It took me 6 days again. It took me about 9 days to complete a page on 'The Waiting' so I am much faster at the moment.

I would like to thank everyone for all their lovely comments. I do read them all and I do love getting them. It motivates me to keep going! So thank you!

Update: The Lights of Home

I had a go at using linen a couple of days ago. A lady gave me a cross stitch kit that uses linen and I love it! In fact I briefly considered restarting The Lights of Home on linen but I have done too much to do that. But after this I will be using linen from now on for sure!

'The Waiting' on its Easel

I bought a wrought iron easel off ebay last week as I thought the finished work was too heavy for my plaster walls so here it is... 'The Waiting' in pride of place in my loungeroom (I didn't use the flash this time):

Earth finished

I have finished the earth plus completed some more background. The metallic thread shows up a bit more in this photo, in the cloud to the left of the earth...

The Waiting has been framed

I have just got back from the framer's and I am really pleased how it turned out. Please excuse the flash mark that is reflected in the glass!

Teddy Bear Gathering framed

I received the Teddy Bear Gathering cross stitch back from the framer's today. I think it looks good!
