WIPocalypse - July

Well, July came way faster than I thought it would. The temperatures are rising (it's really hot here in Germany and it will get even hotter) and I finally get to start working. I must admit that it was quite nice to have a few weeks off, but now I am also looking forward to start working now =)
I spent my last weeks at home (mostly reading and stitching) and now I am ready to get back to university again ;-)

As for WIPocalypse, here is what I managed to accomplish this month.

First I managed to finish the first page on Danielle, she is very nice to work on. The confetti is real fun after so much block stitching on Kreimhild.
Here is Danielle as of last months update:
And now:
I also managed to stitch one page on Kreimhilds Revenge:
Before:
And now: 

As for this months question: 
Reality or Fantasy? Which do you prefer to stitch? Figures or Abstract?
Well, that's hard to say. I guess I prefer fantasy, but I also like a realistic style (like my Kriemhild or on Yule Angel). I actually like Faeries and things with pointy ears or wings, I love working on designs that are somehow "magical". But I prefer a realistic style. I don't like the comic or manga style (I love to see people working on the FoF designs or the Hannah Lynn designs, but I can't really imagine stitching them myself). Designs that look like painting are fine for me as well (like Starlight does) =)
Abstract designs are very interesting as well and I love to see people working on them, but for my own stitching I prefer to stich a person or an animal.
But at the very end, it's still up to the design itself, some artwork just calls to me to stitch it =)

I'm not entirely sure what I will work on next. Maybe I will pick up Yule Angel for a few stitches to show you my "new" technique to avoid gridlines (you can't really see it on Kreimhild because the floss color is so similar to the fabric color) and then I will give some love to Middle Earth. 

My next post will be YOTA, I'm not sure if I will manage to post during the weekend, but on Monday I should definitely manage ;-)
