Flowers, flowers... everywhere!!!

Thought I'd take a picture and see if I have made any (if at all!) progress on this never ending flowers. I worked on this for a couple of days. And you guessed it I am still on those flowers!!! Argh!!!

I just really want this over with, so i try ever so patiently to atleast work on those flowers day after day after day after day... Although it looks like once I am passed the (rose?) arbour everything should go smoothly as the fairy and prince itself have big blocks of colors, so it should be more like mirabilia-ish (which i love love love!)
Here is an old photo of my previous WIP blog entry

And here it is as of today (or since the last time i worked in it)

I have even thought about it over and over, that once I am done with this design I'm tossing it to my sister as her wedding anniversary gift this July, can you tell I am starting to get very tired of this design? LOL. But i showed a finish piece to hubby and he really loves this (no matter how many times I've yelled at him because of how pissed off i was at those flowers!!!) He even like this design better than Mediterraneo which i also adore. But maybe when it's all done, finish, over with...I will start to love this piece again. Crossing my fingers, eyes and toes!!! Kitting this wasn't a cheap one either. So please be still my heart!!

Noreen ~ This piece is just stunning. I love the fabric you are stitching it on. Those are a lot of flowers though, I can feel your pain ;)

You are making progress! And the flowers look lovely, though I totally understand about them taking forever plus a few more days. :)

Lets try again said...

It looks wonderful though. I am not a fan of stitching the cruddy flowers around designs. It gets quite boring.
Your sister is going to love it

It is looking so beautiful, but I can see how sticking with the flowers would get quite boring after a while. Taking pictures to see your progress helps so much on these types of projects as you can really see what you've gotten done by comparing them. The other thing I do is change colors of the highlighter I'm using. I make a copy of the pattern and mark off as I go, so one week I'll use a green highlighter, the next pink, the next yellow, then a blue one and so on. With the different colors I can also see how much headway I've made on the pattern piece, and that is a nice feeling too.
