Time for another WIP Wednesday. Since last week’s update, I finished the wrap bracelet I had started. I also made a tiny bit of progress on the “Anhinga Blues” cross-stitch project, and I started stitching my first “Alice in Wonderland” design.
Although you may have seen this photo on Instagram already, here is the finished wrap bracelet:
It’s funny because I don’t normally like wearing bracelets–or anything on my wrists, but I fell in love with this project kit and really wanted to try it. I loved making the bracelet. It worked up really quickly. And, I love how it turned out. I’ve even been wearing it.
I made a small amount of progress on the backstitching for “Anhinga Blues” based on artwork by Ikki Matsumoto:
The anhinga has an eye now and more of the long grasses are completed. For some reason I am having problems counting the threads or seeing “the squares” on this linen fabric, so I will be so happy when I am done with the grasses.
Last, but not least, I have started stitching my first “Alice in Wonderland” cross-stitch design. It does not look like much yet, but it is exciting to start on it:
This first pattern will contain the quote “Why is a raven like a writing desk?” This is the riddle that the Mad Hatter poses to Alice during the mad tea party and which goes unanswered.
Thanks as always for reading! :)
