And here's the beginning of my current project, a card for my sister's 60th birthday. I've given myself plenty of time for it because the design measures 91 x 91 stitches and I'm stitching it on 20 count fabric with one strand of thread. It's a young woman's head in profile, in a sort of Art Nouveau style. Very pretty.
The flesh-toned bit on the bottom left is the back of the woman's neck. Then the shoulder of her gown is bottom right, stitched in off white and pale ivory, with some light grey shadowing which I haven't stitched yet. I managed to get that part done this afternoon while it was sunny enough to see what I was doing. I really need good natural light when working with light colours on a white background. Still got a long way to go, as you can see from the first picture. the second is a close-up of the stitched area so far. I'll update periodically to show my progress.
