|The original kit.|
Below you will see the progress on the "Snow Angels" design as of September 3. I put the picture of the kit at the top of this post because I didn't want to disgust any of my cross-stitching blog friends. I took this photo below with my Kindle, which I think actually takes better pictures than our current camera. But it came out with a sort of yellowish cast, which really isn't present on the cross-stitch piece itself, and it also shows all the wrinkles and folds that come with carrying a needlework project around for years on end. (I'm obviously not going to press the piece just to make it all pretty for the camera, but will wait until it's finished and will wash and press it then.) As you can see, I actually have made a decent amount of progress on the snow angel outlines and on the clouds. Much of what I have left to do (and am currently working on) is done with a blended needle of two different colors. I find that a real challenge, and if I wasn't marking my place on the chart with washi tape I would be making even less progress. I'm fairly pleased with how much I've been able to get done just by making it a point to pick up this UFO every few days and add some stitches.
So there you have it -- my progress on one of my UFOs! It is coming along since I made more of a commitment to working on it this year.
Do you have a UFO project? How's it coming?
