As I’ve just read Bernie Ecclestone’s bio, I felt like stitching on this one by Stitchtastic again. It’s been quite a while since it saw daylight so I wasn’t sure how much I’d enjoy it, but once I started I was really happy that I’d decided to try and get it finished. I had forgotten how slowly it stitches up though. You seem to have been working on it for hours and have very little to show for it, but it is around halfway done now.
This is how it looked when I abandoned it just over a year ago.When I restarted it this time, I wasn’t quite sure where to start stitching. I had a few threads parked so I picked one and then stitched as much as I could with that colour before moving on to another. I seemed to make more progress that way, or at least it felt like it, so I’ll continue doing that next month. It only has twelve colours in it, but somehow manages to have a remarkable amount of confetti which gives it some lovely detail.
This is how it looks now. I concentrated mainly on the lower left hand side and did some to the right of the tyre too.
I’m back on the Papillon SAL now. I should finish the current part of that easily before the end of the month and then it’s back to the start of my rotation.
