Green Iguana - 2018-04-15

Today has exactly the same frame position, so it’s easy to see what got done:

That’s his cheek, doesn’t he blush prettily in blue?

SAL Update: Green Iguana #11

It’s been three weeks again, already! And I’ve got definite progress to show. Here’s last time’s picture:

Green Iguana - Progress 2018-03-25

A couple of days ago, I finished the area on the right, and had to reposition my frame. Time to take a picture of the whole project so far. I think I’m starting to get somewhere:

Green Iguana - 2018-04-12

The faint pencil cross is the middle of the project. Time to make my way to the halfway point! I’ve filled in the little area under and to the right of the big circle, and then started to work my way from the left side of that area, so that’s the view for the next couple of updates, probably:

Oh, how time flies! Luckily, I’m still addicted to Mr. Iguana, which makes for progress.

Here’s where I was last time:

Green Iguana - Progress 2018-03-04

And now I have reached the right margin, and even started the next section:

Green Iguana - Progress 2018-03-25

Still all confetti, all the time, but I have noted a big difference: the golden/brown area on the lower right mostly consists of about 5 different main colours, with sparse stitches in other colours. This is way easier to handle than the white to grey areas, where you’ll have about 20 colours all evenly distributed, so there’s very few stitches of the same colour next to each other. Let’s say things are going a bit slower there.

Sorry for being a day late, but I took Mr. Iguana on vacation and wanted to show you the progress after I returned late last night. On one hand this is a decent travel project, since there’s not that much to pack, on the other hand only a couple of the hotel rooms I was in had anywhere near enough light to actually make progress. So, here’s last time’s progress:

Green Iguana - Progress 2018-02-10

And this is where I’m now:

Green Iguana - Progress 2018-03-04

The stitches farthest to the right are about 5 stitches away from the right border, so you can see how far I’ve got to go yet. I’m loving the subtle colour shifts in this part!

Mr. Iguana continues to fascinate me, and that’s how progress gets made! Here’s where we were last time:

Green Iguana - Progress 20180121

I’ve since then started to fill in the area on the lower right side:

Green Iguana - Progress 2018-02-10

I’ll be a day late for the next update because of some travel, but I’ll definitely post!

Here’s where we were last time:

Green Iguana - Progress 2017-12-31

During the last week, I managed to finish filling in the area I was working on, and now I can be pretty sure that I’m over a quarter done with this. For proof, here’s a picture of the whole design area taken when I was moving the frame:

Green Iguana - One Quarter Done!

And here’s a close-up of that first quarter:

Green Iguana - Closeup of First Quarter

Since then, I moved into the lower left quarter and started outlining Mr. Iguanas shoulder, which will be entirely covered in scales, as you may have guessed:

It’s the last day of the year, and I’ve almost managed to finish the first quarter of Mr. Iguana. Here’s where we were last time:

Green Iguana - Progress 2017-12-10

I actually did get around to some stitching while spending the holidays at my parents’ place:

Green Iguana - Progress 2017-12-31

The circle is finished, and no, it isn’t the eye, which we will probably get to around the end of next year, if I keep up the pace. I think it’s basically the place where the upper and lower jaw meet. The faint cross you can see on the fabric is the midpoint of the piece, and I’m currently filling in the rest of the lower left quarter. I’ll then continue to the lower right quarter before moving into the upper half. I might be a while, since the lower right quarter is all skin and no background. This is also the reason why I won’t leave this quarter to the end – I’m a big fan of tackling the hard parts early.

In spite of Christmas preparations taking quite a bit of time, my obsession with Green Iguana is still in full force. Here’s where I was last time:

Green Iguana - progress 2017-11-19

And this is the current state of affairs:

Green Iguana - Progress 2017-12-10

The circle I’m currently working on is one of the most prominent features of Mr. Iguanas head – and it even has a few areas of block colour in the middle! The concentrical circles are made up of more greys than you can imagine from the picture, though.

Last time I had finished the left side of Mr. Iguanas neck, with lots of background left to fill in:

Green Iguana - 2017-10-29

The “now” picture is actually a couple of weeks old because I’ve consciously put this away in order to focus on sewing Christmas presents, which this time of year needs to take precedence for obvious reasons. But before that I did finish the background, so I could move the frame to the right. I love the splotches of blue within the green-brownish background! He’s back out as of yesterday, though, since I’ve made good progress on the presents (post to follow once I’m finished).

My obsession with Mr. Iguana hasn’t stopped yet, so there’s quite a bit of progress to show. Here’s where I was last time:

Green Iguana - Progress 2017-10-08

 

And right now it’s looking like this:

Green Iguana - 2017-10-29

I managed to completely fill the outline from last time and made a start on the background in the lower left corner. I’ll fill in all the background next so I can move the frame over to the right.
