Hiatus over on Peacock Tapestry

I haven`t stitch much on the Peacock since my last last post until my holidays started at the end of July. I am currently working on the trees on the bottom left-hand side of the design.

Hopefully I will be able to post progress pics more regularly from now on.

After a little head scratching I decided that this would be my next UFO. I started it last year about November time (I think). I put it away because I thought that I had used all the wrong red beads and was completely demoralised. They weren't wrong at all it had been the way that the display one had caught the light in the shop. Now I know that this isn't going to take my usual months to finish but it will reduce my UFO pile. Hope you like it.

Happy stitching to you all.

From Start to Finish

Here we are this is how' Break Time' was picked up again, after approximately 18 years, in April 2010.

I enjoyed doing the three 'H's , that is head, hair and hat, as the colours were really cheerful, not the hat obviously but it makes a great foil for the other bright colours.

With a degree of mumbling about the chart (hand done), the colours getting boring on the trousers, the vast amount of backstitching... Here he is today. I've put a measure on the photo so that you can see he really is long, it is almost the width of our two seater settee.

I've now got to decide what my next UFO is going to be. I think I'll pick one that hasn't actually been in the gloom cupboard for as long as my other ones and also that probably hasn't as much to finish on it. I'm leaning to a Mill Hill Christmas decision in a few days.!!

Thanks for your support in my mammoth UFO without you it might never have seen the light of day again.
Till next time....Keep going with your own UFO's and good luck.

Looks as if he's winking!!!

Wearing my fingers out trying to get this finished. I've finally found myself enjoying it. Is this always the same I wonder. I think I'm going to make it into a wall hanging for my 'guest' bedroom. (It's where the older grandchildren sleep if they come on their own.). In the back of my mind I'm trying to decide what will be my next find from my pile of UFO's. Decisions decisions. I think it'll have to be a smaller unfinished as I think I might need a confidence booster to feel that I can actually get something finished quickly!!!
My clown has actually moved on a little since my DH took this photo but that's for my next post .....just to keep you guessing!!!!
Any how until next time thanks for taking time to look and happy stitching to you all.

Dragons Update

 Well I am cruising along with dragons on this page. There is way less confetti stitching so that really helps. In just five weeks I have gotten 1/3 of the next page done! That is pretty good for me.

Here is the part I am working on:

And the full piece to date so far:

Thanks for reading!
