Late reports (again!) – WIPocalypse and IHSW April

Yep, late with my WIPocalypse and IHSW reports again. Couldn’t be helped though! Anyway, I thought I’d better update you all with what I did.

I combined a goal from my WIPocalypse list with April’s IHSW and worked like crazy on Rika. Here she is before the IHSW:

Rika WIP 14

 

And here she is after it:

Rika WIP 15

 

But I didn’t stop there, oh no. Here is what she looks like now:

Rika Finished

 

ALL DONE! Well, I’m not sure if I should add a small black border around her or not, but I’ll think about that for a while. It’ll be ages before the whole project is completed! But for now, I can cross this one off my WIP List!

And it’s May now, so the next WIPocalypse post and IHSW weekend aren’t far off at all. I am going to keep the promise I made to myself from now on – I will blog regularly!
On the project front, I have Nei and Arena to work on, as well as the pile of thank you gifts I need to make. My charity squares as well. Oh, and the Sonic Bedroom too. I also have to get started on a wedding gift for my neighbour and organise the Sprite Stitch swap…the list is pretty much endless. πŸ™‚

Toodles!

IHSW August!

Here’s my report for August’s IHSW! πŸ˜€

First, I did some work on a new piece (yeah, I know…another one!):

Arena_1

This is going to be one of the opening images from The Elder Scrolls: Arena, when it’s done. More on this soon!

I also took some time to work on Rika:

Rika WIP 13

I filled in the lightest part of her face, ears and arm, with a little bit of skin left to finish.

I also did a little bit of work on a dragon, which I don’t have a picture of but since it’s part of a set, I’ll save it to show them together.

So, not a huge amount of work done, but I’m glad I actually did something. And even posted within a week! Go me~! πŸ˜€

 

IHSW May – reporting!

Hello friends! Long time no post πŸ™‚
I hope you are all well and crafting, and that you enjoyed your IHSWs!

And on that note, let’s get down to it, shall we?

This weekend, I mostly worked on my quilt square for Sprite Stitch. It’s the Shrine of Azura from Skyr– crap, it’s raining and I have washing out…must go get it! — ahem, from Skyrim.
Here’s how it looked on Friday:

Azura WIP 1

And here’s how it was on Monday:

Azura WIP 2
Lots of blues in this piece. Not as many colours as I normally go for, but should be nice anyway. Better order some supplies to get it finished!

Oh, it stopped raining. How annoying! *shakes fist at clouds*

I also did a little work on Rika. I have been forgetting to take photos when I do work on her, so I don’t have a before and after for you this time. So I’ll just show you what she looks like right now! πŸ˜€

Rika WIP 12

I added most of the pink a couple of weeks ago, so at the weekend I was really finishing that off and working on the skin tones.

And that was pretty much my weekend, except there were a few orcs and quite a lot of falling asleep.

I’m going to do a catch up post very soon, because I do have a bunch of stuff to upload and talk about. I really need to motivate myself to post more often, but I just seem to forget a lot!

Anyway, thank you for looking and see you again soon!
