TUSAL and #WIPWednesday

First off I have my orts for the Totally Useless Stitch A Long hosted by Daffycat (button over there in the sidebar).


I have my before/after backwards, but I was so excited about my afterwards!  And while the pictures are not at the same angle, I think we can all agree that there's some definite progress in there.  I have my Tapestry orts, plus the left overs from the Texas kit and the FlipFlops kit (not all that much, really, but yay!)

And for WIPWednesday, have a little Tapestry!


What I'm trying to do is concentrate on the bloom going out at the diagonal in the corner, and then filling in any of the color that I'm working with (so the other blossom motifs grow slowly but surely).  I'll finish the diagonal and then the right side so I can move to the upper middle.  Truthfully, I'm losing interest in stitching this piece - I rarely stitch on large pieces straight through like this, but I'm so close, I'm stubborning my way through it.  I know I'll feel a huge sense of accomplishment when it's done and that's holding me.   I figure it'll take another couple of weekends to finish because I, fortunately, don't have plans for either other than this Friday :)

And for my work #WIPWednesday, I've picked up the Triforce of Badassery again.   I'm off by one row, but I'm just working around it and not frogging, because metallics, UGH.
I'm stitching this on 28ct black lugana with Petite Treasure Braid 01.


This pattern is somewhere on the SpriteStitch site.   I'm nearly 1/3 done!

  1. Tapestry is looking wonderful and you are very close to a finish now. Hopefully alternating with another piece will help.

    1. Thank you!
      I can't decide where losing interest stops and finish anxiety begins!
      And I think stitching on something else does help a bit :)

  3. Great collection of ORTs and great progress on the Tapestry. Pulling through such a big project in one go really will be an accomplishment!
    The triforce looks cool as well, I'm looking forward to see more of that :)

    1. We've been busier than expected at work, so I've just finished that little corner, but I'm anticipating that it should be a fairly quick stitch. People laugh at me, because two sides of my office are a window and they see me with the printed PDF taped together (6 pages), just covering my desk and me stitching away at lunch or the end of the day (if work is done, thank the heavens for a time limited job, I've never had one before - it's so weird).
