I think I spent more time dreading page 15 of Whispers than it actually took me to stitch it. Thanks to a couple of days off work I managed to get the page done in six days. I’m not sure I’ve ever completed a page so quickly but I’m sure it’s all down to the big blocks of black. I really had to keep breaking it down stitching 10 rows of the black and then going back to fill in the dark blues and browns that were dotted about. At the bottom of the page you can just make out a couple of light patches which are the top leaves of a bush. I think for the rest of the picture the first page of the row is dominated by a big leafy bush and lots of colour changing – I know I’m going to be looking back in fondness at all of the blocks of colour I’ve been moaning about.
Still not sure what to do next, whether to pick up something else for a week or get started on page 16 and it’s big blocks of blue. My new toy hasn’t arrived yet so I think I might spend the evening playing computer games and make a decision tomorrow depending on whether or not the postman brings me my parcel from America.
