Hi everyone

I had a good sewing session last weekend and have updated my blog and photo album with the latest results. These can be found here: http://divecat.multiply.com You don't need to log in as it is all in the public domain.

Best wishes and happy stitching
Love - Christine

It's looking great!! I'm not normally a big blue person, but the blues in this are so pretty!! I can't wait to see more!!

I also flipped through your other album (you'll see my comments) - you have some gorgeous finishes, especially that purple Iris Smile

Why thank you! This is the first time I have taken photographs of a piece as I go through it. Of course most of my other stuff has usually taken a month or less to finish Laughing . It's interesting seeing the piece grow and, as you say, the blues are lovely and, although quite dark, if you're counting carefully and marking off, it's not too bad. Certainly it's nothing like working with black (thank goodness Confused ).

The iris and the other flowers were by a lady called Sheila Hudson and I met her at a Stitching Show in London Olympia one year. Her artwork was fabulous and I was really drawn to the iris because of the lovely colours. After that, I just had to do the others so I could have a grouping of four. Unfortunately Sheila died recently and she will be greatly missed.

The Lancaster picture looks a bit out of character in amongst the other 'girly' pieces but it was a present for my Dad as he has been aircraft-mad for ever (I spent most of my formative years on an airfield!).

I also had a sneak peak at your Castle, which looks fabulous. How many pieces have you got on the go at the moment?

Go for it! Although it can be a pain in the bum at times with the teeny tiny symbols and half stitches, it'll be worth it in the end. Please don't think about not doing the outlining as it really makes the piece pop up!

Swap ya - I'll do your bs if you'll do my blending filaments Smile

Just a note - if any of you hear me say anything about covering an entire piece with metallics, please kick me and remind me how bad an idea that is Smile
