Have you ever had a brain freeze while following a needlepoint guide? I have them all the time...I'll be going along just fine and the next day I look at the chart and POW..my mind is in a Polar Vortex.
That happened to me while I was finishing up Joseph's background. I got the hard part great, but I just could not SEE the second step. Really, it was the Bijoux going through the channel that got me! Then a few days ago, it just was there 5-4-5-4.
Here are some more highlights of Joseph...his lantern
I still have to do the 3D fingers which caused me to stop in the first place
Here's my 2013 finishing that I picked up yesterday..check out the little Needle Deeva gingerbread man heart in with the Melissa Shirley candy canes
Here's a close up
Have a great week!
