Checking in!

I thought I'd pop in and show my recent pics of my progress on Nova. Because the design is made up of a large number of individual blocks, I didn't get so much of a feel for the overall design in rows 1 and 2. I've now started row 3 and that's changing. Each block now is part of the larger oiece and I start to get a feel for the overall design, the gradual colour changes flowing across the piece.

I also had a bit of fun taking these photos - how to show off the end of row 2 and start of row 3 and still make the photo look interesting?



I'm now frantically stitching on Cheryl's RR which I should have finished by now - sorry folks! I've not got too far to go - you can see my progress on our blog at the Heartfelt Friends RR.

I'm feeling a lot better these days than I have been over the last 6 to 8 weeks and life in general isn't stressing me out so much which is quite a relief. I'm also starting to really enjoy my stitching again!

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my previous post. I'm sorry I'm so badly behind on my blog reading, but I will catch up with you all!

This piece is beautiful Lesley! I love how you have taken the photos.
Good luck finishing my RR, with the postal strike there's no point rushing it to the post office...it wouldn't get far! Im glad you got Donna's RR before all the chaos!
Glad you are feeling a bit better. Have a nice weekend

I love seeing the pictures of Nova. I've been considering getting this. With the really small blocks, its something I could work on when I don't have a lot of time.

Your photography is awesome! Nova looks just fantastic with the way you've pictured it..and I know it's beautiful IRL, too! I'm glad you're feeling less yucky.

You are making progress now, and it won't be long before you are on your fourth & fifth row. Then you will really feel like you have "smokin needles". Keep going girl!
