Wisteria - WIP 04

Last picture I posted

I made a new friend yesterday and completely used up every scrap of energy I would have had for the next three days. I can not describe how awful my legs feel. It was worth it, but ugh, my body.

Despite a very long and tiring week in general, I did get back to work on my wisteria project (aka the piece from hell). It's nice seeing so much completely filled in space. I've been simplifying as I go along, so when it wants three different purples for a span of 14 stitches I just use the middle shade. Maybe it won't be quite as lovely at the finish, but without the simplification I would never finish this. 

At this point, I'm really trying to work from left to right. It's still a difficult project that I won't finish any time soon, but I think I'll be happier to pick it up now. I'd like to fill in the remaining bits that are mostly surrounded by other stitching and then I'll go to work on something else for my store.


  1. It looks great so far, I know what you mean though sometimes when I am stitching I think to myself "why do I put myself through this?!" But it will be worth it in the end.
