Happy Dance

I'm here to share a Happy Dance with my readers. I marked another piece off my YOW (Year of Works in Progress) list last night. Tuesday I decided to take a break from the Ocean in the Bottle for the rest of this week. So I picked up one of my Erica Michael pieces Ocean of Wisdom. Last time I worked on it was in October and I was here...
After Tue and Wed I was able to get it finished up...
(Finish #12) April 4th, 2018
Ocean of Wisdom from Erica Michaels
Stitched on 40ct Silk Gauze
Used Suggested DMC Threads
Started Jan 19, 2016. Took 8 Days.

Every time I work on the silk gauze I just fall more in love with it. Yes it's tiny. Yes it was scary the first time but I swear I love it more each stitch. It's so delicate and just tiny. It's really not that hard to see with good lighting. Because it's gauze I think it's easier to see then 40ct fabric. I'm glad I have many many more Erica Michael charts to pick from in my backup endless stash. I have an idea for how to finish these tiny gauze pieces hopefully after a trip to Hobby Lobby in the next few weeks so stay tuned for that hopefully.

I agree with the sentiment, the coast always makes me happy (and I know it does you too) x
Great little finish

Great finish, Katie, congratulations. This is such a lovely piece. I also like to stitch on 40ct fabric and you are right with good lighting and in my case a good magnifier it's not difficult to use.

The happy dance, awesome! It looks great, did you figure out how to finish it yet? I haven't tried gauze yet, but you made it look easy.

Rachel said...

You still have my total admiration for stitching on such high count fabric, which makes the congratulations for your Happy Dance twice as frantic! Now to wait and see what you've got planned to finish it off... :)
