I got the hang of needlepointing, so I got my first needlepoint kit and started working on it. It is a beautiful humming bird design which is printed on the canvas with all the threads included.
|Half way there!|
This is my progress so far and I'm at a half way point. I'm realizing how tedious and time consuming needlepoint is!
The humming bird is a complex design with more colors involved compared to the coaster, so I find it quite challenging. I have to think ahead on which colors to stitch first, so I can securely stitch the colors that have only few stitches. Even though, I was extremely careful, I still managed to miss some stitches. :-(
This is how the back looks and I'm not even sure if it's supposed to look like this. Does it even matter how it looks on the back? Anyway, thinking of doing this in miniature scale seems more daunting than I initially thought!
I hope everyone is keeping up with their new years resolutions! Have a great week!
