I’ve been getting somewhere! Basically the last three weeks have been frantically busy with all the organizing work going on for the Dublin 2019 Worldcon (those things take an army of volunteers to make happen, who’d have thunk), and I’ve been using the Pomodoro technique to keep on top of my endless todo list, meaning for every 30 minutes spent trying to keep ahead of the information overflow, I gave myself a 10-minute stitching break. You can probably get an inkling on just how much work I have done during the last weeks by the amount of progess I made.

I finished the third-to-last pattern page, and now have only parts of the two side-to-side pages on the top left to do, which I’ll be able to do with the new frame position:

I’ve now got a start on the area next to his eye:

Don’t expect much of an update next time, since I’m off to beautiful Ireland tomorrow, and will spend my quality crafting time on the Raksura Colony Tree.

Has it been another three weeks already? It must have, and this time I did get a few more stitches in.

Time for a game of Spot the Difference! I did pull Mr. Iguana back out the last couple of days and added a few stitches.

Not that much to report today, because I’m busy with an important project that has an actual deadline, but I did move the frame since you last saw the piece, so there is at least something to show. Here’s where I left off last time:

Green Iguana - 2019-05-10

I did some more filling in before moving the frame:

And here he is in his almost full glory without the frame:

And here’s the new frame position for reference:

Green Iguana - 2019-05-29 new frame position

I did make a bit of a start with the area below his eye, but have put the whole thing away now, since I need all of my work table and my attention for the other project. (Eep, it says I have 68 days left right there on the front page, and there’s so much still to do!) So, if I’m not out of panic mode in three weeks, I’ll be able to show you at least the little bit I’ve done.

This post is brought to you by the magic of WordPress’ “Publish Later” feature, since I’ll be just returning from a bit of travel when you read this. So, not that much has happened, but you may still be able to spot the difference. Last time:

Green Iguana - 2019-04-28

Right now:

Green Iguana - 2019-05-10

Still some progress made, even if it’s just two very busy weeks worth of progress.

Has it been three weeks again? I guess so! – Spring has sprung around here, so I’ve been trying to spend more time outdoors. But nevertheless, this little guy continues to be addictive. Here’s where I was last time:

Green Iguana - 2019-04-06

And this is today’s picture:

Green Iguana - 2019-04-28

Quite a bit of progress! I worked on the area above his eye as well as the background. I almost got a page finish at the top, and then it’s down to four of the twelve pattern pages that still have open areas, and just one of those is completely white! While the end is not quite in sight, I’m getting there!

Today’s progress on Mr. Iguana – here’s the shot from three weeks ago:

Green Iguana - 2019-03-17

In the meantime, I’ve finished filling in the area under his eye, and once that was done, moved the frame a bit up. Therefore it was time to take another full picture of him!

Green Iguana - 2019-03-29

It’s been another week since then, and I’ve made some progress on the area behind his eye:

Green Iguana - 2019-04-06

Onwards to filling in above his eye and doing the background at the top, so I can move the frame over to the left.

Mr. Iguana got a finished eye today! Here’s last time:

Green Iguana - 2019-02-24

And now we’re here:

Green Iguana - 2019-03-17

The eye is completely filled in, and I’ve started working on the horizontal strip below his eye, which will also lead to finishing a pattern page. I’ll then go on to deal with the area behind and above the eye. The pink vertical line slightly in front of the iris is the midline of the piece, so once I’m there, this will be three quarters done! Makes me think I’ve got a chance to finish it up by summer!

Still working along on the eye. Here’s last time:

He’s gotten most of his makeup now – mostly those dreaded colours indistinguishable from white left over:

Short post this time. The eye has gotten a few more colours. I went from here:

Green Iguana - 2019-01-13

To here:

Green Iguana - 2019-02-03

The lines are much stronger and the first shades of green are making an appearance.
