Some of mine...

Postby cirestan » Fri Oct 10, 2014 4:57 am

Let's see if I can figure out how to post images.
Here are a couple of my past projects.

I did this one to put in my son's nursery when he was born.

After doing the Leopard, above, I needed a technical break so I did these frogs.
The green one is my older son (5), who never listens.
The orange one is my younger son (1), who doesn't talk yet.
The purple one is my daughter (9), who can't believe what she has gotten herself into.

This is my current project.
See my signature. It's my largest and most complex so far.

This gives an idea of the scale. The scroll is the width of the project. I think the final dimensions on 18 count is 14" x 28".
The rectangular portion of work I'm working on is "page 1".

Well crap. That didn't work. The images are way too big. Let me resize them and try again.

Fixed the sizes.

Those are really great :D I stitched the frogs a few years back. It was one of my favorites to stitch.

Love the leopard. He looks so majestic.

And the frogs turned out really well. I have the same kit. I bought it to do for a friend, but she sadly passed away before I could ever do it. One of these days I'll probably get around to it.

Good luck on your current project! What's it going to look like when it's all done?

This is what it will look like when done.
As you can see I'm way up in the top left corner.
I think I have the edges of her fingers in the lower couple lines of this page's pattern.
It starts off highly technical, but below the top third when most of the flowers in the tree start fading out I'm expecting to pick up speed on some of the broader fill colors.

Beautiful projects!!! My mom and I worked together on a baby sampler using those frogs a couple of years ago...they are so fun to stitch!

Good luck with your new project!

Mucha is my favorite artist ever. Spring is going to be beautiful. Summer is my favorite, and I've always wanted to stitch it! :)

I agree. Mucha walked such a fine line between fine and commercial art.
I had started looking for a major project to undertake and I couldn't decide between Mucha's Summer & Autumn. After thinking about it for quite a while and finding the patterns for all four seasons that I trusted (after all, wouldn't it suck to finish one, and decide you wanted the whole set only to not be able to find comparable patterns?), I thought about it some more, and finally convinced myself to start with Spring.... I'm a sucker for blondes.

By the way, I got the pattern from Scarlet Quince.

I'm thinking three years to finish this one.

I really want to stitch those frogs and the big frog pile - I just need to finish some other kits off first :p That leopard is a really nice one too
