I know this is a bit redundant since I just did a progress post, but a lot happened this three-day weekend, so I still have enough for my usual Sunday update. Almost all the household projects I skipped last weekend got done this weekend...just a few straggler projects left. How I ever managed time to stitch was pretty surprising actually. I un-scrolled Rainy Wedding and got it ironed (I didn't think it needed washing, so I didn't bother).
You never really pay too much attention to fabric changes when you go up in count (Rainy Wedding was on 18), but when you go back down again, it's really hard to adjust. My fabric of choice is always 28ct Monaco and all of my new projects as well as most of the old ones are on 28ct. It takes a while for my eyes to adjust back to stitching on such tiny fabric. It's probably why I've had a massive headache all day today.
Friday I worked on Suteki...just as I feared, it's dithered to the max, but I still managed a chunk of it, technically, almost half a page (although, in fairness, it's only a partial page anyway):
Honestly, I really just don't like the overall look of it either, but it's what I'm stuck with, so on I must roll. As always, I'm hoping that the end result won't suck as much as it does actually working on it.
On Saturday, I took care of most of the household tasks, so I got started late on Night Wish but, again, I did manage a bit of it:
So far, this one is my favorite. I do absolutely LOVE the colors, but considering purple is my favorite color of all, it's kind of expected. Again though, we'll see how I feel after a couple of rows.
Sunday was set aside for Snow White but, unfortunately, my head didn't cooperate and it decided to explode at some point a few hours ago and I haven't been able to stitch anymore. I'm just now able to even look at a computer screen...here's hoping it's all gone by tomorrow. I got some done on her though, but not nearly as much as I wanted to and it took me forever to do the little bit I finished:
All of these were pretty heavily confetti'ed, at least where I started, but the difference between Suteki and the other two was pretty distinct and I can already tell that, even though Suteki is going to stitch fast, I'm going to hate every minute of it. You guys probably can't tell the detail level, but Snow's compared to Suteki is like night and day which is why my brain can't wrap around why they changed their charting method in the first place.
Despite today's downturn of events, I have still thoroughly enjoying having two three-day weekends in a row. But for now, my head needs to rest.
