…you all have my permission to do whatever it takes to stop me! What was I thinking? 245 colours! And that was AFTER I reduced them as best I could! I thought the Great Fairy piece last year was nuts, but this was just insane.
Oh, I’m talking about the Ivy piece for the Sprite Stitch quilt, that I spent my entire IHSW on. I finished it at 2:45am this morning!
Here she is:
Still looks pink on my phone camera (although to be honest, everything does!) Looks better the further back you stand from it, hehe. Despite hating it most of the way through, in that way that we do when only some of the pieces are in the puzzle, I’m really happy with how it came together. Also, pretty sure it can stand up by itself, there’s that much thread in the back. Kinda bulky in some places, but I knew that would happen because of the stupid amount of colours! It should be fine with another wash, though. (Which it will be getting when it gets to Toni, the quilter.)
I am most happy with the sword, actually – I was afraid it wasn’t going to stand out from the armour but it seems fine!
Here’s a picture I snapped of both my pieces before they left earlier today:
I feel a certain sense of relief that they are gone now. But the work for this Black Mage never stops, as I’m sure some of you know! I have (as usual) a bazillion more projects to finish, and indeed start! 😀
