Tarot Town Update

pg 1 This is where it was when I picked it back up again sometime in Jan2012
I took this on my iphone in poor light as well so the colors are off haha. But you can see the progress and I didn't want to go HUNT down where the digital camera was hiding. Originally, I only took the pic to txt to my best friend.
I do want to say that I tend to buy Potato colored fabric for my projects that are fully stitched. Potato is or should be more of a lt cream at most fabric stores but without the sheen most creams have so it dont show as much under the stitches when done.  It makes the white thread stand out more while stitching and the dk threads not have that or as much of that bright white fabby sneaking through the threads.


  
all of pg 1, almost half of pg 10, and pt of pg 2. I would have gone further on pg 10 but this is so huge even my huggie I made for my qsnap for HAEDS which is wider to hold more of the extra fab then most can't hold all the fabric! I'll have to make a wider one right now some of the extra fabric is in the way of the sides of the stitching area and I didn't want to move my frame so I started pg 2 instead. When I get the time I will make a new huggie that will hold more of the fab. First I have to get rdy for the upcoming yard sale and well my craft room is storing most of the boxes and furniture for it so I can't get to my sewing machine if I tried.

 Look you can see the clouds! Well I can kinda LMAO! I wish they were more obvious as with some other HAEDs but most HAEDs it seems when you can stand back and look when more is done they become more obvious. I can't wait to get away from the shades of grey and into the colors of this piece. Its actually colorful once you get the clouds done.

Here is a closer picture.

    1. Thanks Tammy. I like making them. I figured the sunny fun fabric would help me keep going until I get past the grey and into the colors haha.
