Any stitching time that I have had, I have been working on my Spring piece from Jardin Privé. To feel less over-whelmed I am being a monogamous stitcher. Progress is very slow. Yesterday I think I achieved 10 stitches (after I had to unpick).
The design is from Plum Street Samplers, and I stitched it on 32 count linen (it’s a mystery colour – I bought it from a craft fair), two threads over two threads, using all of the called for colours (a combination of weeks dye works and gentle arts).
After all my other embroidery projects (Cinnamon Stars and the RSN crewel work), I want to make the Home Sweet Home sampler from Modern Folk Embroidery. So I have bought a few different reds from Stitchers’ Corner to test. I am going to use this linen (Sand 40 count)
This is my year of finishes. I want to finish projects that I have started. Like my Cinnamon Stars project. This is what I work on at home, at my two stitching groups, I have been working on my Gingerbread House. It’s looking a bit ramshackle because I have sewn it altogether yet.
Below is my previous progress photo – I have now finished the top half and just have to work on the bottom left and right.
I think I finally have a set-up that works well. My Lowery frame, magnifier and working at a table.
