Ophelia: Third Post - Page 7

So page 7 is finally done.  I didn't work on it while on vacation, but I've spent a bunch of time on it before and after.

This is how far I was at the end of February:

And finally, page 7 completed:

And here's the ever exciting full view of Ophelia:
Background... lots and lots of background.  Next up... more background.

Project Stats:
Pattern: Ophelia
Original Artist: Jonathon Earl Bowser
Pattern by: Heaven and Earth Designs
Started Stitching: August 15, 2009
Restarted Stitching: January 1, 2015
Fabric: 25ct. White Magic Guide
Floss: DMC 1 over 1
Percentage: 4.56% complete
Pages: 2 of 54 complete
Stitches: 15,442 out of 338,400 complete

I think I'm probably going to continue on to page two, again.  I really am still enjoying this, and I'd like to get to stitching Ophelia, unfortunately that's still two pages away, since I'll do page two then page eight.  Those both have a little bit of Ophelia in them, but I'll probably wait until I get to the pages next to them before I stitch her, I think it'll look cleaner.

Vacation Scarfs - Completed

Well, I just got back from vacation.  I wore my new shawl to dinner one night, however, my older nephew fell asleep during dinner and we ended up using it as a pillow for him.

Since my youngest nephew seemed to like the scarf I made for my sister/his mother, I decided to make him one.  And working on crocheting on vacation is much easier than working on cross stitch.  So I actually made him a scarf on the first day.

Here's the yarn:

And the finished scarf:

As I was working on the scarf for the younger nephew the older one asked me what I was doing, and I told him I was making a scarf for his brother and asked if he'd like one too and he said yes, so I had another project to work on while on vacation.

I made up a pattern since I didn't take any extra patterns with me so I just made up a pattern for this scarf:

I didn't work on Ophelia at all, it was just so  much easier to work on crocheting.  But I will hopefully have an update soon on her anyway.

Faces of Faery 88: Seventh Post - Framed

I mentioned that I got Faces of Faery 88 completed in time for the framing sale.

She's not up on the wall yet, but she's all framed and pretty.

Well, back to working on my projects and packing for my trip.  Ophelia's going with me, we'll see how much I actually get done.
