1st Page Finish on Envy

Yep, here I go again on Envy. It feels soooo much better with a bit larger stitches and it turns out much nicer in my opinion.

Here's a picture of the entire piece from Heaven and Earth Designs:

And here's a picture of my progress:

I am now working on the page right above this one. I am looking very much forward to stitching her dress - I just love the colours! I intend to finish one more page before returning to my rotation system again :-)

I am not sure how much time I'll have for stitching during the upcoming week. The hubby and I are to bake and decorate cakes for approximately 100 people. The school where I teach is throwing a small party for everyone who finished their teacher's training this year, so we'll spend a lot of time baking and making fondant flowers ;-)

Late IHSW update

Sorry I'm late with the update. I had exams Monday and Tuesday (or rather, my students had exams). I did not get much done during the weekend, I had to prepare for the exams and visit my parents-in-law. However, I did work a bit on Envy (new start). Here's a picture of my progress so far:

Envy, starting bottom left page (as usual) :-)
 And here is something else I worked on last weekend. Because I'm done with my education the school where I'm working is throwing a small party for the lot of us who finished this year. I agreed to make cakes for the reception and figured I'd better practice beforehand. So this is a small version of what is going to be a rather large cake:

Inside it was all chocolate-cake with chocolate filling

My summer-holiday is starting now, so it's back to stitching (and Diablo 3 and the Sims at some point).

Before-and-after pictures

I've been stitching on both the Mini Citrine and the Female Draenei 10 hours each. I've made some before and after photos for you guys (justbecause I love before-and-after shots myself):

 You can begin to see the bottom of her arm now. I am looking forward to see how that develops.

I have yet to receive the fabric I need to restart Envy by Marta Dahlig. I very much hope to get it during this week. I think I will stitch just about 1 page on her, before returning to my rotation and incorporate her (Envy) in it.
Until then, I'll stitch another 10 hours on the Mini Citrine. 

Happy stitching all!
