College, Page 6!

Just (JUST!) finished another page on College and I couldn't wait to post it! I was really happy to finish this page mainly because there was so much sky I got really tired of it. Still not done with the whole row yet, but the next page is only about 1,100 stitches so not too bad. Should have it done in the next Boyfriend visit. Boyfriend has been most helpful with this page finish, having picked all the symbols and even did some of the stitching himself!

So, without further ado, I bring to you College of Magical Knowledge, 30% done.

Before:


After:

College of Magical Knowledge by James Christensen from Heaven and Earth Designs
Stitching on 25 count antique white evenweave
1 thread over 1 with DMC


I will leave you with an image of Boyfriend's car, after he apparently pissed off every bird in California:


Took about 5-6 washes to get it all off.

Great work on the sky, and good luck with the next page.
I do hope that the birds will leave the car alone for now!

Hugs Yvon.

Great progress Ewa! It really looks great.
Oh my goodness! Your boyfriends car really got bombed. I bet he parks somewhere else in future!

Hello

just joined your blog.

Congrats on another page finish on your WIP.
What a great BF helping you like that.

Wouldn't wanted to wash his car though!

Congrats on another page finish, and also on getting to 30% done! That's more than halfway to halfway. :)

Uh... That's one very unlucky car.

A great page-finish =)
I know how demanding sky-stitching can be, I'm just doing it and I am also looking forward to stitching something else ;-)

Poor boyfriend... When I clean the windows at my parents house, a bird appears when I am done to mark a window... I think it's always waiting for me to clean the windows ;-)

LOL! His car is a mess!! Hilarious! I remember one time some seagulls got pissed off at us students at the university and dive pooped on all of us Kamakaze style!!

Great progress Ewa! So cute that he got some stitches in! He's a keeper!!

Hugs

Hahahaha! I'm sorry but talk about a crappy day for your boyfriend. If my boyfriend came home with his car looking like that, I would still be laughing.

Glad I came across your blog this IHSW. You have some great projects in the works. I just love that Mario project you are working on. That is really cool.
