The sun came back out today, so after a walk with the dog, I managed to steel a couple of hours on the Spring Daisy this afternoon. The trouble with this kind of fine goldwork is that it is just too hard on my eyes at night, so finding a bit of day time stitching is just fabulous.
Am I going to unpick it? No. As the work grows, the rounds will take longer and longer to complete, so it will be a slow project to finish but despite the trickiness of it I am rather pleased with how it is shaping up - who said it was going to be easy anyway? However, if I do stitch it again (I really don't like doing anything twice, so that is very unlikely) and if, IF I ever do something similar for a workshop or a kit, I will most certainly be trying a different combination of threads and quite possibly use a slightly darker beige or even a blue-beige for the shading, which on this piece is very, very subtle in this piece.
For now, I am off to the shops for new and stronger stitching glasses!
Have a fabulous weekend,
