A Christmas Present Update

I’ve been stitching as fast as I can making Christmas presents, and I feel like I’m doing pretty good, all things considered. It’s barely December and I have four completed projects and two more in progress. I’ve been using the opportunity to experiment and try out some new techniques. I tried some blackwork, or more accurately, purplework.
I’m currently working on an embroidery that’s totally out of my comfort zone, but I am having a blast. I have a very clear picture in my head of how I want this to turn out, and I’m using totally nontraditional methods to make it work. It’s almost got a painterly feel to it, I’m trying to do a lot of shading. I’m pretty happy with it so far, hopefully it continues to progress well.

I want so badly to show off these projects I’m working on, but they’ll have to wait until after Christmas. Until then, you can just look at these little sneak peeks.
