Touching the Autumn Sky, finis

This pattern has three reverse-image symbols. Sure enough, I goofed on the very last one. Some of the brown leaves were supposed to be green. I think it was a subconscious move, because I found that green distracting. Additionally, I grew stubbornly resistant to frogging as the finish drew near. I left ’em. I don’t mind, and I couldn’t wait to finish her.

Here is my “later-in-autumn-than-you-might-have-expected” conversion:

She’s so lovely.

Touching the Autumn Sky by Mirabilia
Stitched on 32-ct Silkweaver Blue Dynasty with recommended fibers and beads (except for the previously noted slip-up)

Happy Stitching! 🙂

Touching the Autumn Sky, pt. 6

I loathe blended needles. They slow me down quite a bit, and they’re quite humbling. I never knew how much I spin my needle while stitching until my first blended needle. Now I cringe at the very thought of blended needles. This project has more blended needles than I would like–like more than one. 😉

I enjoyed stitching the coat. One reason: no blended needles! The scarf, her hair? No such luck.

Back to stitching the “invisible swinging girl.” Time to get her “visible.”


Happy Stitching! 🙂

Touching the Autumn Sky, pt. 5

I really got into this project during the last rotation. I wouldn’t put it down until her skirt was done, along with starting a few other bits here and there.

Is it me, or does it look like the lighting in this picture is a bit weird? No matter. It’s really coming along!

Happy Stitching! 🙂
