PIG Update

I haven't been posting much, and haven't been stitching much. :( I have managed to do a bit more on PIG, though. :) This photo is from July 15-- it hasn't been touched since then, but I plan to get back to work on it in the next couple of days.

I also took a couple of detail pics. The first is one of the portal sections. There is a lot of detail in these-- specialty stitches, over-one and plenty of metallics. The metallic backstitching is a real pain, but adds a nice sparkly touch.

This is a detail of the little buildings on the outer corners. The rooftops are done in a modified rice stitch, which is then backstitched in gold.

My recent stitching has been a Christmas ornament for an exchange, due to be mailed in a couple of days. I'll post a photo after my partner has received it.

Goodness this takes my breath away. It is just soooooo beauitful, the dark background and the colors just pop. I love her designs but the stitcher makes them beautiful.
