Letters from Nora Update

Wow, it is warm here today! 37C/98.6F... so body temperature out there today. There was a bit of a breeze, and it wasn't as humid as it will get in late July/early August, but it was still a hot one! It will cool down a little bit this week heading to Father's Day over the weekend, and I'm looking forward to that. 

I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to stitch tonight. We don't have A/C and sometimes it's just too hot! Therefore, I thought it was time for an update, besides the weather report, on some of my other stitching. 

Geeky Heather and I are doing a SAL for Letter H of the Letters from Nora series. If you remember, I was in the midst of unpicking my misplaced letter when I last showed a photo:
April 12, 2017

The bit on the left is new stitching, all the stuff to the right had to come out... 

And it did, eventually:
and then it grew:
and it grew:
and it grew a leg:
and it grew a head:
and more wings:
and the last of the wings:
and that's where she is for now. The finished model will look approximately like this:
only I'm using the charted colours on 28 count Jobelan called Nuriel's Forest from Chromatic Alchemy

So there's a decent amount left, but also a decent start. I try and get it out for a few stitches at least on Wednesdays. How's yours coming along Heather

Happy Stitching!

  6. Great progress and I feel your pain on the weather...we've got storms moving in too, so it's making the humidity even worse, but I'd much rather be hot than cold!

  11. PS: and wow, it's really hot where you are. We don't have A/C either but fortunately we don't get these high temperatures even not in the hottest summer as we live in the mountains.

  13. Looks great :) If you make mistakes like this, I think it's a really good idea to stick with it and fix them right away!

  14. I remember the attack of the giant frog! Great new progress though. These do stitch up quite quickly once you get going.

  15. Good progress on the letter, you are cruising along. 37 deg C seems a bit hot for where you live , well its better than 50 deg C in my part of the world.

    1. Thank you! And yes, so far we've never hit those temps, but we might hit 40C this year, July is usually the worst in our area.

  16. One stitch at a time, she's looking great!

  17. Oh, she's so pretty! I considered stitching these for my daughter, Katie, but just never got around to buying and stitching them. I thought a single L would be nice for myself. Maybe someday.

    1. I don't think I have K any more and L was promised to the same person when I finally finish it. They may still be around when you get around to it too though.

  18. Great destinations. I don't have a list, my single destination would be your #1. I'm totally fascinated by the Rocky Mountains and that's where I would travel immediately.
