International Hermit and Stitch Weekend

So here is my weekend progress. Am probably an evening's stitch away from finishing the first quarter of 6111 stitches. I really really need to crack on and get this one done. I am loving the way its stitching up. The detail is just fab although the colour palette bizarrely looks better under electric light than in natural.



  1. I'm always amazed when people stitch up HAEDs. There's too much detail for me and my eyes would go buggy! Your geisha is looking great with those subtle details of her face! WOW!

  2. Hi Nicola,

    Wow, I'm so impressed. It already looks so great. To have a look at work like this really inspire others who are stuck, to just keep on going. Thanks!

    Regards Linda

  3. Wow!!! she's stunning. You must love your sister very much. :)

  4. This is an amazing piece of stitching! Your sister is lucky!

  5. She is absolutely stunning! I bought a copy of this picture as a chart for myself a while ago and she's on my too stitch soon list (as opposed to the 'when I'm 80 I'm still not going to have stitched all of these' list.
    Can't wait to see your continued progress on her, you've made some impressive progress this weekend.
