Moving Right Along

I have sciatica from sitting all cramped up. I need a proper standing frame.
She is looking very lovely. I can't seem to get the colour good in the photographs though. But you can take my word for it, she's lovely.

Mademoiselle Riviere Progress Report

I am so enjoying stitching this pattern. I work hard at it in the evenings, in spite of not having a very good system... that is, I need a stand for the frame. Otherwise I am cramped up with it propped inelegantly between my knees.
She if far more beautiful in reality. It looks quite nice here, but the true colours are lovelier. Deeper.
Working a painting in canvas work gives you the image in a way that a mere print does not. It gives texture and depth and incredible warmth.
I need another me, who I can set to making these full time.
