Serengeti WIPs

Finally!!! I have something to show. :D Work has gotten increasingly busy the last few weeks and I kept running out of time to post after IHSW. Before I knew it, we've hit a new week!

Part two of Serengeti took me longer than anticipated. I hate stitching with black thread. The coverage is so abysmal and I fiddle with it for way longer than I should. Complaints aside, I'm happy to report that Parts 1 and 2 are done! Those one-inch squares in in the corners consist of about twelve colors each! Martina never ceases to amaze me with her mastery of colors. :D





On the Lilac front, thanks everyone (!!!) for all your comments. Y'all make it so much fun to share. :D I've since found the fabric backing for her and she's now situated in my closet with her other pixie friends.




Have to get back to work now. :(

I'm dreadful at keeping up with people's blogs at the moment for the same reason, free time seems to be something that happens to other people at the moment!
Lilac is gorgeous, and I'm loving seeing Sereghti (I always spell that wrong).

Perfect fabric for Lilac - she really is beautiful. As is Serengeti - great progress.

Beautiful stitching, and fabulous finish! Your Pixies look so good hanging together, and how brilliant to put them where you will see them so often!

Looks great, you did fantastic with the coverage of that black! ^_^

Katie said...

Wow beautiful progress. I agree with you about stitching with black. I feel the same way with white. It just never does a perfect job. Your finished finish is perfect! Love them all hanging out together.

Beautiful work, every piece of the Chatelaine is just divine, those tiny corners would make lovely ornies.

Your pixie closet is growing too, they look lovely mounted like that together.

Debs said...

Beautiful stitching as always. I love the way you have finished the pixies would never had thought of that!

Your fairies are looking great, quite the parade! Your other project is so amazing, I think I have chosen my Chatelaine, Pompeii (this is really your fault)! It is on hold at my LNS, I am just too scared to take the plunge!
