I have to do a "before" and "after" picture of Royal because I'm actually quite surprised that I got so much done.
Here she is at the end of the last time she was in rotation:
And while I don't feel I worked on her an inordinate amount this week, I was focusing on getting as much of that golden brown skirt done as possible. It was actually very easy stitching with no confetti, not a ton of color changes, etc.
And here she is:
I know, right? I did feel a need to take a break from all the browns and do some of the red of the cloak, but I got almost all of the brown skirt completed. An extra hour or two will complete that, plus some time working on filling in the swirl pattern with the metallics. They will have to wait for the next rotation.
And there's a reason why I wanted to get most of the skirt done, but you'll have to check back in a few days to find out....mwahahaha...
