The weekly Lady, #3, also: June WIPocalypse

Another week has passed (oh my), so it's time for another update on Lady & the Tramp. I finished the last window-section on the lower floor and did quite a bit of tree. Tree is also what I predict for the next few weeks, with a slight change in the shades of greens somewhere in between. Can't complain about my progress so far.


Also, a little bird told me it's WIPocalypse again...well, my progress this month is mostly on Lady, a secret project I can't show you yet, and Spring Bunnies - I already posted that one once, but now I got it all nice and framed and uploaded on my dA for the Puppy Love Contest, so I might as well post it here again as well:


Apart from that, this month's topic is Have you ever been to a stitch gathering such as a retreat or a festival? If so, tell us about it! and sadly, my answer to that has to be 'No, not really' - I did however take part in a few IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend) with hangouts via Google+ with my dear friends, which I have come to greatly cherish. Basically we all sit in front of our webcams, stitch and talk, and from those hangouts, often the most creative ideas come forth. Sadly I'm usually not able to stay online for very long due to time differences; when my girls start the hangout in their morning it's already evening here...someday, I'll have to just sit down and stitch all night!

  1. I like how you have this secret project going on ^_^. And I find the webcam stitching such a cute idea. I've always wanted to do like a group stitching thing. Just sitting around and stitching with others sounds fun.

    1. It's a win-win situation, I'm enjoying both working on Lady and spending time with my grandparents more than I did before, and I think they do as well :D

    1. That's true; in fact, I find it to be really, really amazing how we are connected like that with so many miles between us!

  5. Lady & the Tramp is coming on nicely. Having watched it again recently, the spaghetti scene is stuck in my head. Lovely work.

    1. Thank you :) I'll have to rewatch the movie again sometime soon as well, it's been over a year already! Thankfully I got the blueray version somewhere around so I can watch it as often as I want :D
