Hi to you all, I've just joined the blog. My name is Nina and I live in Finland. I love to rotate different kind of WIPs, but I have one which has been sadly neglected. And here how she's going to look like (eventually):

Shinysun's Cross Stitching: I See the Light

And here's my progress so far:


The main reason, why I haven't stitched her since last October is the fabric. It is 18ct black aida, and stitching black and dark navy blue on black isn't funny. But because it is almost spring here, the daylight has increase and I can make some good progress on her (with your support, of course :).

I've started her back on May 2010. Now there're over 3000 stitches (from the pages 1 and 2) which is almost 10% of all. My goal for this year is to finish the first page and 2/3 of the second page.

Wow! No wonder you need some natural light. What a great picture it will be fun to watch it progress. I have found this sight very helpful at keeping me focused. Welcome and Happy Stitching.

Oh wow, I'm sure that isn't fun. I've tried stitching on black while watching TV so I could hold it up and see where the holes were.

Hope you get lots of work done in the longer days that are coming. The start looks good.

Hi there and welcome to the blog. I stitched on black aida some while ago and understand the difficulties. It's a lovely design and look forward to watching it grow
