Faery 2, Lokakuu 2011 / October 2011

Jälkeen / After:


Kiitos kaikista paranemistoivotuksista, flunssa ei onneksi kestänyt kuin muutaman päivän.

Kuten kuvasta näkyy, olen tehnyt kankaalle samanlaisen ruudukon kuin ohjeessakin on helpottamaan ja nopeuttamaan pistelyä. Nyt on helpompi saada oikea määrä pistoja oikeaan paikkaan, ei tarvi montaa kertaa tarkistaa laskelmia ja pelätä virheitä. Ruudukko on tehty Easy-Count Guidelinella, jota Ewa kerran blogissaan suositteli.

Kuva ei vielä näytä juuri miltään, kun on pelkkää sysimustaa ja parissa kohtaa häivähdys sinistä, mutta ensi kuun päivityksessä on sitten jo enemmän värejä ja ehkä jopa erottuvia muotoja/hahmojakin! Nyt täksi viikoksi Baby samplerin pariin, siitä kuvaa viikon kuluttua!

Thank you for all the "get well soon" -wishes, luckily the cold only lasted a few days.

As you can see, I have traced on the fabric the same grid that can be found on the chart. This improves my stitching speed and accuracy, as I won't have to check my calculations as many times or be as afraid of making mistakes as before. For gridding I used Easy-Count Guideline (recommended by Ewa in her blog a while back).

It's not much of a pic yet, as as it's just black with a hint of blue in a couple of places, but in next month's update there'll be more colours (or at least more shades of blue!) and possibly even some recognisable shapes for you to spot! Now I'm switching to Baby sampler for this week, I'll be back with progress pics after the weekend!

Thank you Melissa, I myself can't wait to stitch more, as I'll finally get to stitch something other than black! It'll be so wonderful to see the picture starting to emerge out of all that darkness.

Great that you are well again =)
My cold kicked me out for two weeks (and after that I got the keys for my flat, spent a week painting my walls and cleaning, next weekend I'll move... Basically, nearly one month of no stitching =( )
Your stitching looks fantastic =)

Heli said...

Aww, so sorry to hear that your cold stayed with you for so long. Feeling poorly AND not being able to stitch is the worst!

Congrats on finding a new flat! Moving is hard work, but once you're all moved in you won't have to worry about doing it all again anytime soon. :)

Thanks, can't wait to get some actual colour on this piece! :D

I wish you a lot of happy stitching hours in your new flat! :)

Awww yay! I'm glad to be able to help! Isn't it FABULOUS? I stitched on a project the past week that I hadn't gridded up before and I realized how spoiled I already am after gridding. It's just so great! Lovely progress, can't wait to see more!

Nostan kyllä sinulle hattua, että jaksat näitä pienen pieniä pistoja! Minä tykkäisin kans noista Headin malleista, mutta en mää jaksa enään näin pientä ja tiheää langan vaihdantaa. Mulle pitää olla LHN tyylistä yksioikoista pistäntää. =D =D Mutta ihanaa, että sää jaksat. =)
