Ain't she pretty...

Worked on Rune Gypsy again this week. I stitched 30 more rows, so I'm at row 150 now.

I'm really happy with this piece. When I first decided to do it, I was kind of worried that it would not look at all like the original art... but was I wrong or what?


I must say that yesterday I was a little concerned that you wouldn't be able to tell where her nose ended. Since the colors used on the background (near her nose) and those of her face are almost the same. But after spending lots and looooooots of time staring at her, I convinced myself that you could actually see the different shades. I guess I'll just have to wait until I finish with all her face, and if this issue still worries me then, I'll go ahead and do some backstitch on her face that will solve the problem.

I am amazed at how quickly you are stitching along on this piece. She is even more beautiful now that you have gotten to her face:)

Wow that is beautiful - you know, you are my inspiration? I've started a huge HAED and when I come and see yours I can see that it really *is* possible to stitch one, and maybe even finish it!

Beautiful, beautiful work :)
