I've been working on the 2nd page of Drama Queen during the last 2 weeks. It started off with a few nice big chunks of blue and I was also excited about adding the vibrant reds of the first poppy. Well, my enthusiasm waned a little as I got into the confetti. I have NEVER worked on a project with this much confetti -- it's insane. It takes me longer to plan my stitching route than it does to stitch the handful of stitches in that colour. The results are wonderful, and I know how amazing this will look because of all of the confetti, but holy doodle it's a nightmare.
I never quite seem to finish a page before I do an update. I'm always leaving a few (and this time it's quite a few) stitches off. I just want to update!! To be honest, I'm updating now because I'm a little frustrated with this piece and have decided to put it aside for a few days. This coming weekend is IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend - see Joyzse's blog for details), and I'm hoping to get a good chunk of my Autumn Tree done.
But enough rambling, time for a picture:
