This is how he was at the March WIPocalypse Report:
Here he is at the end of today's stitching session:
I will be very disappointed if I am still working on him when the next WIPocalypse report rolls round.
Now to this month's discussion topic - specialty stitches. Satin stitch is the one I dread. I can never get the required coverage, even if I add extra strands of floss. I usually resort to double stitching - horizontal satin stitches topped by vertical satin stitches - and even then I am never happy with it. I used to dread french knots, until I learned to do colonial knots instead. I find the colonial knots much easier to do and they look just as good. I happily tackle any other specialty stitches, provided there are diagrams to follow.
I can't resist showing a few pics of my Angela, who is now 9 months old, and just gorgeous!
Playing with toys in the lounge-room.
Imagine it's the right way up. It's the best I can do! She was meant to be walking nicely on the lead, but gt a bit exuberant, and took off like a little rocket.
Resting on the lounge - but ready to spring into action as soon as anyone moves.
