Cogsworth thought that it was time for him to show his face this week. :) I am pretty happy with how he turned out, and I am excited for when I can back stitch him. You can also just see the base of Lumiere starting to take form. There are soooo many partial stitches with the characters and details in this piece. It takes a long time. I think that the next one of these that I do, I will do on an evenweave fabric instead of the aida, even though it already comes with the aida. I think it will be much more manageable.
Here is an overall shot:
It seems like it is such slow going with two kids - I am constantly having to start and stop to address one thing or another with them, but such is life, and progress is progress. I am so excited by how far I have made it on this, and I know that I will finish it. Especially when I can see how little I have left, it's very encouraging to me. :)
