Autumn Evening update.

I've decided I lead a pretty boring life. I work, I come home, have dinner, go to bed and then do it all over again, just about every day. I'm not a very social person so I think stitching is a perfect creative outlet for me since I can be alone and I don't have to worry about entertaining or being entertained by someone else. Of course I could be over-thinking it, I tend to do that too. Ah well, I guess it's all about perspective this week.

So the RNG (random number generator), over there --->, came up with #11 last week, so I spent the week working on this wonderful piece. It's going to be really pretty once it's done and I can see some of the blues as I go, but it's pretty dark at the moment.

Here's where it was when I started, for the most part. I say "for the most part" because I worked on it at least one other time, but apparently I forgot to take a picture of the additional work. It wasn't much more than oops! my bad!

I didn't have a whole lot of time to stitch this week, not really sure why because, as I said, I lead a boring life, but here's where it is now.

As I took the pictures tonight I could see more of the blues in the bright light of the flash, I wish they were a bit brighter. I think that as I go further they may show up a little bit more, I hope so. I usually take more than one picture when I'm getting ready to do an update, just so I know I have at least one that is just right for what I'm trying to convey.

I love how digital photography has made it so that even the least experienced photographer can get really good shots from time to time. I still have a couple of rolls of film that I shot years ago, I still haven't taken them in to be developed, I wonder if I should, if for no other reason than I wonder what on earth I was doing that pictures were called for. Hmmm, Maybe I'll take them in this weekend. Curiosity is getting me going now.

Next week I'll be working on the one WIP I had in this challenge. Its a pattern that came with my PC Stitch program, I call it Southwest Mission, but it's called something else in the software, I can't recall what at the moment, and frankly I'm just too lazy to stop and look right now. I've had this piece going for a bunch of years, even when I didn't have a place to stitch. I'd pull this one out of a drawer and put a few stitches in every once in a while. I'm determined to finish it this year. So until next time, Happy Easter everyone and Happy Stitching!!

That looks a wonderful project, look forward to seeing your progress on it. Think my life is boring as well, thank heaven for stitching!

Nice start on your KK piece. It will look great as you get more done.

Oh, your RNG has really good taste. That's gorgeous!!! I love the reds and oranges in that too. Lovely, Otter. And thanks for following me. I'm getting so close to two hundred, I can almost taste it.
