Paper Ladies day 3 of stitching....outlining and x-stitching the scarf

My January Paper Lady is coming just as I thought , the blues against the white Monaco
fabric is so clean and clear....
I managed to get some of her scarf done highlighting it with a bit darker floss and shading
it to lighter...

Her coat will be a medium blue....
It is still very cold here today, so we are going to watch 
House of CARDS marathon 
and I am going to stitch more....

Here is a close up....her sleeve only has 1/2 stitches...going to complete that and the rest
of her scarf and tackle her coat today...
I used variegated threads in the pattern part of her scarf and just added some lines
anchoring them down in a cross pattern.

How to do the EYES I did a tutorial that is included now with the pattern...

Happy Stitching ladies...I am off to put a shepherds pie in the oven for supper...
it is one of those cuddle in days....

In Stitching heart...

  2. She is a stitching beauty and looking fabulous as it is!

    Have a wonderful weekend ♥♥

  3. Samm that scarf....stunning! I'm really loving the blues! blessings, marlene

  4. Wonderful work, her face is just beautiful!

  5. Oh, what a beauty she is!! Many times faces on stitched people don't look realistic, but your lady is so lovely :)

  6. Oh so pretty! I love the colors and her face is gorgeous! Her eyes are so vivid and life like - I love them. This is going to be an amazing piece! I had a set back today. I had ordered a piece of light grayish blue linen to use and received it today (JOY) only to discover that the "new unused" fabric from a seller on Ebay that had 98% positive feedback had yellow stains :( So I had to dig and I found some linen I can use but I have to make a few color and fabric changes for my floss and applique pieces. But I refuse to let a little set back dampen my enthusiasm - onward to my tracing and cutting. Then I will post some pictures on my blog! ;)
    Happy Stitching!
