Finished at last...on to the next

I am so proud of myself for finishing this project, it took a couple of weeks and plenty of distractions and interruptions, but it's finally done and hanging on my wall.

here's a side by side to compare

it's a bit small, but you get the gist.
And now for some larger closer images.

Almost done

My scalded hand is almost all better and only hurts if I run it into something (which I do surprisingly a lot). But I've managed to keep on crafting through the pain, mostly because the pain is more tolerable than the boredom. So here is my project so far, it will be done by tonight - barring some sort of disaster, but I probably won't get to take decent pictures of it till tomorrow.  Bear with me there are lots of pictures

Once I've the added the girl I'll fill in the bubbly spaces with more french knots and it will be completed. I'm thrilled with the result and yet a little sad because I have no idea what to do next :)

A bit of progress and a hot hand

I've been making good strides with my 3d-ish embroidery project. I'm thrilled with the girl turned out I used woven picot for her hair I love the way it feels.

And then tonight whilst making taco shells for dinner I did this to myself, it hurts so very badly and worse I can't do any kind of crafting

I'm still kicking!

So it's been a reeeeeaaaaaalllllly long time since my last post, my wrists and hands still hurt too much to do a lot of crocheting. But never fear, I have discovered I can do embroidery with very little pain (until the end of the day, but thank goodness for tylenol). So I've been working on that and teaching the kiddies how to embroider as well. They are having a ton of fun, I never thought they'd like it so much.

I also have an announcement  my husband-to-be and I are expecting a little squirming bit of cuteness come January, though he swears it's twins at least. So for the past few months I have been dealing with crippling morning sickness and some serious baby blahs. But I promise to be on here more and I'll still have some patterns and such for you. I'm hoping I can trick my mom into making them while I tell her what to do :)

And some pictures of my current project:

I'm taking this picture I drew and turning it into a 3d-ish embroidery project

not the best picture but I almost forgot to take one at all

 the bits of her body

 some the path of the star, ideally you won't see any white or black under all the stitches, we'll see how that goes.

I'll be back with more later, sooner than that hopefully.
