Here is a closeup of the stitching on this piece. It is being done 2 strands over 2 threads on 28ct Jobelen.
On Sunday March 7 I pulled out Christmas Dreams to work on it for the next two weeks. I have made more progress than I thought I would. Then two days stuck in bed resting my knee gave me lots of time to stitch! I also did some stitching while I was at my doctor's office today. This is still in my hoop because I plan on doing some more stitching tonight.
This is really taking shape now! It is going to be gorgeous! When I am done with the blue version, I hope to stitch the red version on the gold dusted aida but I have to get the chart flipped so that when I make the wall quilt, both Santa's will be facing each other. I think its going to look great!
I ordered a few new charts, quaker designs. I can't wait to get them. I wasn't sure I would like stitching a Quaker design but I really love it! The mini-finishes helps keep my interest up, and the way each medallion/motif looks crisp and clean just looks great!
Well that is it for me for today.
