The Grass is Greening

Well it has been a few weeks, OK more like a month since I last posted, but come on who has time to post when I'm trying to keep up with all of the thousand of stitches that you all are putting in! 
So I will try and add a few stitches to yours.
First off here is where I stitch.  Do any of you have 3 lamps going?
The Huntsman progress.
  I was kind of worried about the colors, because I am stitching it with one strand DMC on 35 count, but once I started filling in the grass the colors have intensified so all is good! 

A close up, the end is nearing!
This big guy was bugging in the backyard this evening, so I thought I would share.
Well I'm off to stitching, please keep all the wonderful posts coming I look at them all and wish that I could just stitch faster.

Hi Carmen,
Your Huntsman sampler is really beautiful. I love the colors, they look great. I see a finish in the future for you and that is really exciting. Your stitching area looks cozy as well. Happy Stitching.

It looks like the end is in sight - a little ways off, maybe, but still in sight.

(And from the look of the stump, that's a well-fed woodpecker. He's very handsome.)

Unbelievable...this is stunning. You are almost to the finish line. Enjoy!!

Looks FANTASTIC! I only have one OttLite where I stitch, but I'm thinking of adding a smaller clip-on type to my stand so I don't get shadows. I hate that. BUT, I do have three FANS in my stitching area! I take medications for back pain which make me constantly hot, so I have fans all over the place! I have to be strategic with my flosses and chart! Lol.

Carmen your Huntsman is beautiful. I have loved this since your first post and you have inspired me to order this chart! I think this handsome guy will be the first "pictorial" that I stitch. I also ordered Hannah Carter but she is BIG and will require a bit more if a commitment so I'll have to see about her!
Look forward to your next post!

Carmen: I use two lights when I stitch! One on each side!

I love your Huntsman....what a looker!

All the best,

Carmen, your Huntsman is stunning,so colorful! I have an overhead ceiling canister light and my ott light but prefer a nice sunny day to stitch.

Kathy said...

This is a gorgeous sampler with such pretty colors and lovely scene.
Think I just might have to order this. It looks to be a fun one to stitch, too. Looking forward to seeing your finish! Your stitching area looks nice and cozy, thanks for sharing.
