Happy Christmas eve, dear readers. I missed WIP Wednesday yesterday, but here is an update on the Simpsons couch project. As you can see there is a lot more
color, and the couch is nearly finished. I ran out of the thread for the couch, though, so I have to work on other parts until I get to the store.
Hope you all are having a good holiday, and even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a great day!
More Simpsons couch gag cross stitch updates means more colors on the project:
I got a new needlework stand this past weekend which is translating to faster stitching. But I will probably have to take a break on this for a while because I have several sewing commissions to take care of first!
What are you working on this Wednesday?
Good morning from the Portland Airport. I write this update on the Simpsons couch project as I wait for a flight across the country to visit my parents. I’ve brought along a lot of WIPs in my carry on luggage; I think the needles and metal hoops and rings that I keep my floss on really confounded the security guy who was running the X-ray machine. He stared at the X-ray of my bag for so long! But they’re all gone safely through.
This update brings new colors to the Simpsons family:
They have skin & Bart has a shirt now! Lisa is all done, except for her popcorn bowl. I am very pleased with how it is turning out.
It’s white & black & white all over this Wednesday, as I finished the black outlining & filled in the white areas on the Simpsons couch cross stitch.
I don’t know why the DMC Blanc looks so much more yellow than the white aida, but it does. Also, without any other colors, the Simpsons look really creepy. Next I’m going to do their skin. Onwards!
