I'm actually really bad at updating when there are pictures on my camera ... for some reason, uploading them is too much effort! So here's the pic I was going to post:
But as of today, this is actually how much I have done!
The second one is going well ... not sure that it looks all that much like the Picasso painting it was supposed to represent ... but ah well :P
Little Miro man still needs some embroidery to finish him off, but I'll do that after I have finished the rest.
This morning I taught a few kids cross stitch at the Kids Stitching Workshop at Glenelg Library as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival ... a pretty busy day, as we also bought another kitty! But that's a separate post ;)
Hopefully tomorrow I'll get a chance to make up my Bats Clutch, as well as finally finishing off Anita's Peacock Clutch. I had a hiccup with the latter - note to self: craft glue is NOT strong enough to stick a metal clasp purse frame to a needlepoint ;) I now have some kick-arse glue, and it's working out much better.
Of course, all that hasn't stopped me from starting a new clutch - this one will be a lot smaller ... like a large coin purse with a pretty chain:
I'm not sure whether I'll do more work on the hand ... I don't want to do too much over-stitching, but I want it to actually look like a skeleton hand!
Oh, and as a PS - lost another 0.8kg (1.76 lbs), so my total weight loss is 6.3kg (13.8 lbs)! Woo hoo! Hopefully next week I'll be under 60kg ;)
