New Project

I usually plan my new project for a long time but this one just reached out and grabbed me with both hands. I couldn't stop thinking about it, I absolutely love the colors, the draped clothing, her beautiful face, the flowers, the water- everything! So I just started her:)
It's called Dolce Far Niente, from Golden Kite. It's huuugggeee, something like 140 pages. It's going pretty fast so far, 5 pages in, I'm tenting her on 25 count lugana. 

I don't want to stop, but I really need to finish off Titania ( Michaels has a great framing coupon that expires at the end of July) 
I also am stitching a BIG gift for a friend which I will post when it's done. ( hint - it's a Charelaine)

This is the finished picture.

Titania from Este

I've finished another row of Titania, leaving about 6 pages (some of which are partials) The hardest part is her hair, which is almost done! She is a bit wrinkly from my hoop. 
 I love her:)
