My Lady’s Quaker Finished

My Lady’s Quaker is Finished!

I finished! This project languished because I struggled to see the stitchers clearly. I got new glasses and while that helped it didn’t solve the problem. However, I bought this magnifier and it has made a huge difference.

The pattern is My Lady’s Quaker from Jardin Prive. I did it on a 32 count Belfast linen (from Zweigart). The black is standard DMC 310 and the red is a variegated DMC 115.

I started it in February 2018, so 18 months to finish it (although it’s about the process).

Progress on My Lady’s Quaker by Jardin Prive

I have become quite monogamous on this cross stitch.

The motif in the upper-right corner created a lot of difficulty for me. I think I stitched it three times before I could get the outer border to join correctly. The blue marking lines helped enormously. I have put more in to make the last few motifs easier and then it is on to the alphabets.

I’m back to stitching in hand and it just seems to work a bit better for me. I don’t think my stitches are better (in fact I think my tension is probably a bit off), but I am far more likely to pick it up and work on it.

I got a bit carried away with buying new charts last year and now I feel a bit anxious about the amount of unstitched charts I have.
