Day 20

Am I on a roll with this or what!!! Have finally managed to get in the swing of stitching AND blogging on the same day!!! Stuck with yellow today - don't like stitching with yellow - and once again made good progress but there are still some very ugly stitches to be seen.

Day 20

Check out that ugly stitch in the top section of the 'white' eckkkk.
Still loving Royal Blood so will continue with that as soundtrack. Think it is time to get on with some other stitching projects so will keep updated with those, today I off to sew a quilt top in William Morris fabrics that I purchased in 2012 before the London trip so high time I started it me thinks.

Day 19 a break through

Yippee today I got to stitch some iris, in order to achieve this though the 'white' stitching did suffer a tad but hopefully this will improve again.
Day 19

My goodness there are some ugly stitches in there!!!

Day 18

Blue was not so bad today!! Progress is not improving so am beginning to think this may be as fast as I can stitch... But still quite a few days to go so who knows.

Day 17

Have stunned myself and stitched and posted all before morning tea!!! Wonder if I am able to repeat this. Shocking piece of stitching today, got a lot done but no idea what is happening on the left side of the 'white' where it meets the pupil took all my self control not to unpick and not happy with todays overall stitching. Maybe Royal Blood is not the right stitching soundtrack but as I love it so much will persevere.
Day 17

Maybe the colour choice had something to do with the final result cos I most definitely feel a tad blue about it!

Day 14,15 and 16

Attack of pinkeye for the last 3 days, strange colour choice for me!!! But progress is improving - although today I did not make it onto the pupil split stitch. New soundtrack is Royal Blood the ep is 2 seconds off 15 mins - perfect!!
