Cosima Update

How come time goes so fast ? October is gone. I haven't done much stitching at all, Twinkle Twilight now has an arm, but not much to show so I haven't taken new picture. This weekend, Amanda and the girls have gone to Sydney for some birthday party. I had to work hence stay at home alone.... Which means STITCHING time !!!!

I picked up Cosima as I was not in the mood in changing colour and finished the first motif in 2 evenings. YEAHHH. It feels great. A mini happy dance, eventhough it's only a small part.



This is actually a huge project, that's 1 out of 18 larger motifs. Ther are smaller ones and also alphabets. The stitch count is 401 x 401. To give you an idea, this is the whole fabric now on my scroll frame.



When am I going to finish this ? I'm thinking maybe 5 years. LOL. At least. I also have Clarissa, its companion which is the same size. Both were limited edition patterns which are out of print now.

Thanks for looking

Glad to hear you got some stitching time. That's a very pretty motif, I imagine the whole piece will be gorgeous.
