Hermit and stitch weekend

Although I love the monthly IHSW (better known as I Hermit and Stitch Weekend) hosted by Joyce, I didn't participate the last couple of months due to lots of things going on (holidays, more knitting and quilting than stitching, ...). Last weekend it was that time of the month again and though I'm late I think it's better late than never! ;-)

I decided to stitch some more on mom's "Asian Beauty" by Lanarte. I wanted to get rid of all the beige/fleshy colours I was embroidering and start on the red! I can assure you my friends ... it's gorgeous on the black fabric! That red really "pops"! :-)

Here she is :

Stitching on this piece is a pure joy and seeing her come to life is really special. I'm truly in awe at how the folks at Lanarte caught the face of this beauty with only a couple of colours and colour blends!

Have a nice weekend (Friday should be done soon :-)!

Beautiful. I stopped doing the weekends and want to get back to them once in a while. Great work.
