Celtic Wolf - WIP post 35

Yesterday's blog showed where I had finished stitching on Monday and today I shall show you the little I managed in between cleaning, wash and appointments - not as much as I'd like but certainly progress, which I have to say is a good thing. Stitching by day is a lot easier on the eyes as the metallics don't sparkle as much, unless you try and take your stitching out into the sunshine - not recommended!
I was getting quite curious as to how it would all look together so decided to take it out of the hoop and have a look. I took Wolf outside into the sunshine to try and show how sparkly he is but I'm not so sure that worked. However you can see how things are progressing and how much I need to do in the short time I have left to complete him.
In a way I'm a bit sad I started at the bottom as if I'd started at the top I'd be able to see what it looks like next to the blue/silver area. I shall just have to be patient as I am going to play it safe and keep going the way I am.


Stitches done: 220
Total stitches:  14476
Total backstitches: 63.62 inches
Stitches left: 3014
I will be back tomorrow with another progress report, hopefully I will have more done! Have a wonderful day.

  3. You should not worry, the contrast will be vibrant and PERFECT. This is probably your very best project to date (I'm very biased here) and have to say that this shows how completely knowledgeable and skilled you truly are....and did I mention BRAVE? Many people would never have gone so far as to use so many different colors of Kreniek as you have here, but this is what makes you so completely MAGICAL!

    1. Thanks <3 Not sure about brave though - using Kreinik is actually easier than using DMC metallics once you work out the trick to use them, and I'm using a lot of both!
