I have some pictures of my cross stitching to post.
Here is the picture from 6-5-11:
This is after working on it for two weeks (picture was taken on Sunday, 6-19-11):
It looks like I’ve done a lot, but it sure didn’t seem like it. Mainly because right now I’m trying to avoid working on the wings. Why? Because you have to use blending filament in them to make them sparkle. I haven’t decided how I want to go about it. I can either combine the blending filament with the floss in the needle, or I can stitch the colors and go back over them afterwards with the blending filament. The second option uses half as much blending filament, but increases the chances of tangles. *sigh* I will figure it out, I guess.
