Michael Powell Progress

Last night saw the end of my smalls rotation, I quite enjoyed the last four days working on ornaments, smalls, and I also pulled out another of my Crazies!


Have you ever stitched something by Michael Powell?  Oh is designs are just so much fun!   They are solidly stitched, with no partial stitches.  The colours are fun, bright, and downright funky.  I just love how while you're working away there's not much of a picture developing, its blobs of colours with vague shapes.  The real fun is when the backstitching is put in and the design just comes to life!

If you haven't stitched a Michael Powell, I encourage you to try one soon!

You can see the other smalls I worked on in my previous blog entry if you haven't already given it a read.

Ok Dani. Your stitching me into those Michael Powell mini cottages. Do you still have the charts and if so would you like to sell them. Great progress.

His stuff is just TOO cute! Can't wait to see what this will be. I couldn't seem to find it on his website.

Guess I'll just have to wait for the backstitching.

Karin said...

Looks good, Dani!

Brigitte said...

I have seen some of his designs but never stitched one. Maybe I should try it one day. I don't love doing the backstitching but I love the effect of it in some designs - just the way you describe it.

Lovely progress. If only it weren't for all that backstitching.

Nicola said...

MP designs are great fun. His larger pieces do include partial stitches, at least his Venetian Window patterns do.
