Gracie: Sand close-up

Decided to take another photo hoping that this time around we could see the ecru French knots better. We can see the darker ones allright, but the lighter ones are a bit more difficult to see. This photo is not quite what I was hoping for, but I suppose that I will have to be happy with it (big sigh).

Fabulous! I love seeing the progression as you work. It really does look great.

Hi PIerette! I love your sand - all those french knots were well worth the effort - it is really effective.

Had a lovely time cruising through your blog and seeing what you have been stitching. All beautiful work, as always, and I can see you are still keeping very busy!

Hi Kerry,

It has been a long time since I heard from you. I can also see that you have kept very busy with CQI and most probably other CQ groups and having lots of fun :-)

Thank you for your nice comments. Keep in touch.

Hi Monica,

That is something that I don't do very much but once in a while I seem to be inclined to do a progress photo blogging.

This is a fun project but every single section of this project takes forever as I need to do a million or what appears to me like a million stitches to complete a small area.

The more I work on it, the farther away I push my finishing deadline for Gracie. I will get there eventually :-)

You do amazing work...You always prefer harder tasks and do best:))

Oh, Rengin, you are so right. I seem to be a glutton for punishment.

The thing is I see a project that I like and don't stop to analyze how hard and/or how long it will take, then I start and discover the challenges, but by then it is too late as I am hooked by the project and just want to go on anyway and the next time around I just do the exact same thing so when I complained to my husband that I was not out of the wood yet, his replied was just so pertinent that it has stayed with me when he said that I was ALWAYS in the wood, because as soon as I get out of it, I then go right back in with some other project :-)
