Insert evil cackle here.
I worked on Minuit again last night, and you can actually tell there is something there now!
Thanks for all the supportive comments! It is so cool to have my inbox full of your praises.
To answer some questions – the fabric is from Tirowen Fabrics and is called “Two Cool Nights”.
The photo yesterday was true to colour since it was a scan. Which won’t be happening for a while since my Mac is now officially offline. *wah!!!* I am now moved over to Scott’s computer until he puts together a replacement for me. So, you are stuck with yucky photos for now.
One thing I am finding immediately with this project – I am used to stitching on 32 count and this fabric is 28. Which makes the stitches seem huge to me. I think the next Mira I do will have the skin stitched over one. It looks a bit too blocky for me.
That’s all for now. Today I will be stitching up my Valentine exchange piece, which I am excited about. Till later!
