I’ve indulged in a lot of daytime stitching and late nights. I should get more sleep…I should clean my house but…well, I’m sure you understand! Plus I started a new audiobook so what can I do???
I completed the bottom part of Lazy Alphabet:
There is a solid navy line around the whole which I will do in hand last. But now I’ve moved the hoop and started the top third.
This is a very quick enjoyable stitch! I’m loving my color choices!
This weekend I returned to baby’s Just Nan birth record “Baby Celebration.” Baby is 10 months old so I’ve got to get it finished!
Here’s my weekend progress:
There is an abundance of cute motifs in this design. It’s fun to watch it come together! I spent more time on it Monday and made really good progress. There are details here and there but 6 of the 10 bands are just about done:
Yes the birds on the white sign disappeared- they were placed wrong so out they came!
Sunday I also worked hard on English Sampler Pillow:
So by Monday all that I had to do was finish the fancy bicolor rice stitch and decide what to do about the Problem Band. And I decided!
I tried some various ideas but I only had 3 stitches high to work with so I ended up repeating the satin stitch triangles in the lighter gold and blue tones to complement the pillow’s ribbon. I’m quite pleased. And…it’s done!
I think it’s the most elegant thing I’ve ever made. Thank you, Giulia Punti Antichi, for something I enjoyed stitching and will enjoy seeing!
