Hello, friends, today is Wednesday’s Works in Progress.
“And a Forest Grew” by Karen Kluba. Boy howdy is it growing, measuring right around 29 inches wide. The biggest piece I have ever done. I’ve already started saving to have this beauty framed. She is going to cost a pretty penny.
I decided since I managed to stitch side to side, I would take a picture. When my adult kids see this, I can already feel them shaking their heads. haha, keeps ’em wondering if I have gone crazy. Makes me smile just thinking of that.
I started this in August 2017. 28 count cream-colored, Jobelan fabric. There are 101 different colors of cotton thread in this piece. I decided to add french knots as bunny tails.
This piece has been mostly a pleasure to stitch. I say mostly because I stitch “in hand”. That means I do not use a hoop or frame. It is a rather large piece of fabric and when I don’t have the sides rolled up, it is rather tricky to hold.
I’ve already stitched the date.
It is an inspiration to complete my resolution of finishing by December 31, 2018. Gee, by already stitching the date, you KNOW I am determined to finish.
The other Work in Progress is close, very close to completion. It is called “Hen” by Ben Creek. It has been a very quick stitch.
Over the weekend, I found the perfect frame to mount this piece on. It was meant to be. So perfect. I can’t wait to complete. (I did change the color of the chicken to match the colors of a couple of my barnyard beauties. )
Please share your Wednesday work in Progress. I think we will be good for each other? We can lift each other up, share progress and inspire one another.
Progress, not perfection!
In this together, friends.
