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:

Original Artist: Jonathon Earl Bowser

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.


  1. Congrats on finishing another page =) The background looks very lovely so far =)

  2. Backgrounds always takes forever to stitch, good work on the page finish.

  3. The colours look lovely on this one. Good luck trying to reach Ophelia herself! :)

  4. Wow, I'm always blown away by you HEAD-stitchers..! I'm full of admiration seeing your stitching-stamina! I could never stick with a project for as long as you need to with HEADs... Very well done on finishing another page!


  5. This is a gorgeous chart! I admire your ability to work your way through so much background. It is off to a beautiful beginning.
