I have found myself pondering things a lot of late, maybe it was the passing of another birthday and the Queen dying. However, I am not Maudling just thinking. Life goes on and so does lots of stitching. I have put a fair few stitches into Sophia and this is how she looks now …….
The first part of her hair is quite tedious as there are lots of colour changes but I can equal it by just sewing black sections. She is progressing nicely even though sometimes I wonder at the thread colour choices but it all seems to blend. I still get that feeling that she is watching me like I did with Audrey. Here is a reminder of Audrey – I think they would look good hung together on our wall.
I do have another image sew and that it is John Wayne (The Duke) – my favourite cowboy. (I love cowboy/indian films and as a teenager my book choice was all about The Daltons Gang, Billy the Kid, Jesse James, etc etc). Each to their own eh!
I bought this from Steven Shaw of http://www.stitchpad.uk and then I will have to purchase the threads as listed. This will eventually hang beside the Indian Chief in our lounge. I don’t think I will use black aida maybe a blue aida or cream aida.
Reminder of Indian Chief …..
Well that is me for this post, take care

These portraits are amazing, so lifelike!
Thank you, it certainly takes time to get them right. Lots of blending and colour changes.
