Last time I had almost managed to fill in the green between the eyes:

Prism Owls -  2020-03-08

Just a little progress today, since I’m in the middle of a few other projects, but I finished the green (soo many colours in such a small area) and started with the red areas above the eyes. You can see some structure is starting to emerge:

In other news, the roof has not quite fallen on top of my head yet, mostly because I have no problems keeping myself busy with the things that already live in my apartment. I’m also able to work from home full time, which is something I’m getting used to. Makes stitching breaks possible, though!

Short update today, since there were other handsewing projects to take care of in addition to adding stitches to the owl. Here’s last time:

Prism Owls - 2020-02-16

I did add a few more colourful stitches mostly trying to get the area between the eyes filled in. But don’t ask just how many colours will be in that tiny area!

Last time I was still working on the black background for the first owl:

Prism Owls - 2020-01-26

Even if it doesn’t look like it, there are other colours (mostly dark greens) now, and I’ve started to fill in the area between the eyes:

This is making slow progress, and that’s probably going to stay this was, since I have other projects on the go that take priority. I’m currently hand-stitching the binding for a big quilt, so I’m rewarding myself with a thread on this one after every thread for the binding.

Just a little bit of progress this time, still using only black. Here’s where I was:

Prism Owls - 2020-01-05

And this is where I am today:

Prism Owls - 2020-01-26

The eyes do make a difference, even just with the black outline! Going to take this project a bit slow, since I’m back in full swing realizing my own designs, which is great!

SAL Update: Green Iguana #39 and Prism Owls #1

I did it! Mr. Iguana is finished, and here he is in all his glory:

Green Iguana - Finished!

There was so little left before I left for the holidays that I took the new project with me and got a head start. It’s another kit from Gecko Rouge, which I just had to grab when they retired that pattern about a year ago:

Prism Owls - Pattern

It’s called “Prism Owls”, and I couldn’t resist all those whimsical and colourful birds. It’s also considerably bigger than Mr. Iguana, so expect me to be at it for a while. Here’s my current progress, quite a bit of a change from all confetti all the time:

Prism Owls - 2020-01-05

I also aquired a bigger qsnap frame and had to make another grime guard. It’s a bit too small to hold all the extra fabric, so I might have to make another one at one point. But for the moment I just wanted to get started!

Almost there! I can promise you a finish for next time. Here’s the last update:

Green Iguana - 2019-11-24

And here’s today:

Green Iguana - 2019-12-15

Three weeks from now is the 5th of January, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to show you a finish as well as a sneak preview for the next project. I’ve already prepped it in anticipation of the holidays coming up with more stitching time than usual.

I’m on the last page of the pattern! Here’s the last update:

Green Iguana - 2019-11-03

And here’s where I am today:

Green Iguana - 2019-11-24

Looks doable till the end of the year, although looks are deceiving with this kind of work. Can’t wait to see him finished!

Progress! In the last three weeks, I got back to regularly working on Mr. Iguana. Here’s where I came from:

Green Iguana - 20191013

And here’s today’s version:

Green Iguana - 2019-11-03

He’s got a nose! In fact, I’m all finished filling him in on the second-to-last page. Next up is the background above, and then I’ll be down to the last pattern page, of which quite a bit is already done since I’m generally following the colours across page borders. Maybe an end-of-year finish is still possible?

I got distracted by other projects in the last weeks, so there’s not that much to show. Here’s where we were three weeks ago:

Green Iguana - 2019-09-22

And here’s where I am today:

Green Iguana - 20191013

I think the current slow progress might persist for another bit, since I have other things going on that take up my time for hand-work. For one, I got sucked into Inktober, which is a challenge to make a drawing in ink every day in October. I’m posting my results on twitter, and will probably make a summary post here once the month is over. Haven’t missed a day yet! The other thing is that our yearly quilt exhibition is coming up at the beginning of November, so there’s lots of finishing things going on.

As promised, I’m back with actual progress on Mr. Iguana this time. Here’s the state of affairs from six weeks ago:

Green Iguana - 2019-08-11

And this is where I am today:

Green Iguana - 2019-09-22

I’m slowly but surely filling in the area between his mouth and his eye. Maybe I can finish him before 2019 is over?
