Yesterday I decided it was time to start hubby’s monkey, by the way, what is it with men and monkeys? They always seem to want one. Well hubby is not getting a real one, but to soften the blow I’m stitching him a really cute orangutan baby, ‘Jungle Scamp’ by Maria Diaz, which was in the February 2010 issue of Cross stitch Collection (issue 180 I think)
I’ve chosen to stitch him on 32-count cream linen, and because some of the colors are so similar I’ve decided to stitch color by color. Yesterday I managed to finish all of one color on one of the pages (the design is on two full pages and 2 half pages), so just have a little bit left of that color in the other three areas before i can stitch using a different shade. I have no time limit on this one, hubby knows I’m stitching it so he’s quite happy just to watch it grow:)
Hope everything is going well for your projects, now on to day 3.
