First FNwF for a While!

I have finally managed to link up with FNwF - so many first Friday's of the month have passed me by recently, so I'm chuffed I remembered to link up.

Pop over to Cheryl's blog here to see what everyone else has gotten up to!

Unsurprisingly for those who have read my blog for a while, I decided to keep working on Beauty and the Beast. I really want this done now, just because it is so close to finishing!

I spent Friday evening and a few hours on Saturday working on some sky (I got a bit further than the pictures suggest!). It always feels like I have done way more than it looks like I have done! But I'm slowly chipping away, and I'm enjoying the purples and pinks I am using for the sky! I will try and get better lit photos some-point soon!




As a general update of this project, I finished the third pattern page about two weeks ago - it's looking so good! (if I do say so myself!)



I hope everyone else had a very enjoyable FNwF!

Thank you so much, Lin. Is it bad I have 3 other Disney ones of the same make ready to go after this??? x

Bethan said...

Thank you, Linda. Currently it is over-riding school work and house work as it is ever so close, and ever so lovely to do at the moment! x

Good for you for keeping up with this one! It is gorgeous and coming along really nicely. It looks almost finished!!!!

Bethan said...

Thank you so much Faith. Hopefully I'll get some more done this week x

Bethan said...

Thanks! Now it's progressing so quickly it no longer feels like such a chore to keep it going. Not too far to go, if I don't include the outlining and french knots! x

Hey your nearly there....... Lots of hours in this one......what size is it?

I see you reply in the comments....... I don't think this goes back to the person who commented....... And most never go back to see this......

Oh wow, you made great progress on this really huge project. I also love stitching huge projects and I don't mind that they always take long to finish. It's just a lot of fun.

This is stunninng! I was going to ask if there was much backstitch or just the main characters.

A Little Bit of Crafting

Alongside the early nights and theatre trips I mentioned in my previous post, I have actually managed to squeeze in a little bit of crafting...
