Close To You - Maia | End Apr 2016




Good afternoon Peeps!



I am back with an update.

I have been busy this month stitching away for the
Faithful April Challenge organized by Justine

This is my chosen long time WIP
Close To You
Maia/Anchor

A kit including
16 count tan aida fabric and
Ancho threads

 

This is how it will eventually look




This is how I left it mid April




And this is how it looks now


 



It is unfortunately not yet finished
but I am so pleased with all my hard work.


I will keep working on it for the time being,
as the finish line is certainly in sight.


Toodles,
Mii

  1. Wow! You've made fantastic progress and must be really proud of yourself for staying with the same project for a whole month. The colours are fantastic. It doesn't look like you have that much more to do so are you going to stay with it or have a break? I do hope you keep going as I'd love to join you in a very big Happy Dance soon! :)

    1. Thank you Rachel!
      As I mentioned in my post, I will stay with this one until it's finished, as I haven't much left to do.
      I will be so happy when it will be finished. I had fun working on it and can't wait to have it framed but it will be so rewarding to have ticked it off the WIP list :)

      It was great to be able to focus on just one project.
      I think I will try to finish my WIPs and stick to one at a time project.

  14. Fantastic progress! Thanks for joining me. I'm glad you're happy with how much you've managed to stitch, and that you're joining me in May. Let's get one each off our WIP lists!
    The colours on your version look so much brighter than the kit photo. This is such a pretty stitch and I'm sure your mum will love it.

      I had fun stitching on this project for a whole month, it is much less stressing than swapping between various projects.
      Dust off your dancing shoes, I expect to have a finish in the next few days :)
