La Scapigliata by Da Vinci - Yiota's XStitch | Update

 
 
Hello Peeps!
 
 
I'm afraid you will have to wait a little longer to see a progress on my tiger as
I have found, yet again, another biggish WIP in my stash in need of some TLC!
 
 
This is
 
La Scapigliata by Da Vinci
 
 
 
 
Stitched on 28 count Zweigart Brittney cream evenweave fabric
2 over 2 full crosses using DMC recommended threads.
 
132 x 176 stitches
4 A4 pages chart
 
Started in Nov 2013...
 
My first update was back in Dec 2013

 
 
This is how it looks now after working on it a bit during the past week.
 
 


 
I love Sepia's designs and I forgot how much I enjoy working on this one.
 
I will put her away for now, but she will definitely making a come back soon,
as she will be added into my weekend's rotation of bigger projects.
 
Better focus a bit on my monthly smalls for now.
 
Toodles,
Mii

      The size should be manageable, I hope it won't take me another 4 years before she comes out to play again ;)

      I do love sepia tones, I find them so relaxing to work with.
      But after a while it's nice to go back to some bright colours, of course.
