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!
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!
Today’s work in progress Wednesday update showcases a new project, the Simpsons on their beloved couch!
This is actually one of two cross stitch projects I’m working on, the other being a small hoop, but that one is a gift for a friend, and I don’t want to ruin the surprise!
Eventually the Simpsons are going to take up most of the 15 by 18 inch piece of aida cloth I’m stitching on. You can see the silhouette of Homer emerging on the left, particularly his belly. The two straight vertical lines on the far right are going to be a floor lamp. You can probably tell that I’m working this a page at a time. Except for a few stitches on each page that are far away from everything else, I’ve finished three of the six pages.
What are you working on this Wednesday?
