The return of Clara (briefly)

Clara has been calling to me, so I decided to spend a week on her before I went back to the final push on Dictionary on Love. She's been screaming for attention for so long and I was looking forward to the bright colours on her, so what did I do? Work on the grey on the back ground... I'm an idiot. Having said that, it's quite nice blocks of colour, so it has stitched quite well, so maybe there was an odd sort of logic in doing the grey first... that and the fact that I usually try to stitch the 'boring' bits first, so that I don't loose interest as I'm getting to the end (as is happening slightly with Dictionary at the moment). Anyway, back to Dictionary I go, lets see if I can get it finished within the next week... here's hoping, because I'm missing my other projects!

Looking great!

I tend to do the more boring bits first as well, whether that be an outline or just big chunks of background filler. I think that makes the colors that much more exciting once I get to them!

Holy Cow how neat is your back!!! LOL I used to do the boring bits first, wading through all the background but now I just stitch what, when and how I feel at the time. Love Clara, she is so wickedly sweet.
