HAED Siberian Forest Page One FINISHED!!!!!

I've finished it!!! It only took about six weeks but it is done.  It certainly was worth the effort because the effect is just stunning.  The colouring and the detail is just amazing.  I am so excited to get the next page, that I intend to rush through the next projects in my rotation so that when the next page is released in April so I can start it immediately!!!

Without further ado....



I am now back to working on my waterlilies design.  I can't believe that it is now August 2011 since I last worked on this design.  I have only one page left till this one is finished so I will be working on it until completion.  This one should go much quicker than Forest because it has large chunks of colour in it.  Since it has been so long here is a piccy of where I left it last time:



This is the latest dress that I have made in my course.  It is Simplicity pattern 2147 View C.  I even made the little belt to go with it.  I have had second thoughts about the fabric now I am finished.  I bought it over the internet because where I live there is no real selection of fabric anywhere.  I loved it when I first got it but I am not so keen now.  It is also a very stiff cotton so I had to do the belt because else it would look like a tent!!!!! However, on the plus sides the fabric was very easy to work with and out of the three dresses I have now made it might not be the most aesthetically pleasing but it is probably the most 'technically' successful!!! 



Happy Stitching Everybody!!!
