Moving onto E


I worked on the letter D for two train rides and for a couple of hours last night - definitely the longest letter time wise so far. Some cool stitches though. I made a change from the way the Damask Darning was charted. I didn't like the way Cynthia didn't compensate for the rectangle so I compensated mine to be a complete rectangle. Also I only used one strand of thread vs. her two strands. I liked the way mine has a 3-D appearance with only the one strand - that effect goes away with two strands. Other than that, I did it the way it was charted. I started with E last night but as you can see, I didn't get to far. I'll finish this up today and tomorrow.


No did plans for the weekend - I do have an agility fun run tomorrow and I'll take both pugs with me - it will be Clancy's first fun run. I hope he has fun. As for stitching, I plan on working on one of my two big WIPs, Marquior or the Village.


Have a great weekend!
