Loving it


Here is my progress on Beneath the Sunlit Sky - the more I work on this piece, the more I like it. :-) I was unsure when I got started but at almost half way finished, I'm finding it a quick fun stitch. I'm having a hard time getting a good photo of it because some of the colors are close to my linen but irl, the colors show up just fine. I found a huge mistake last night. I did the house in the wrong pink! It's supposed to be stitched in the darker of the two pinks and I used the lighter. At this point I'm not sure if I will take it out or not. In person it doesn't look bad at all and I might just be ready to move onto my next project when I finish up. So I'll see.

I went through my stash last night to pick out the next couple of things I want to do. I will for sure do something from my waiting in the wings list. I have several that have been there for over a year now and I want to get to them. The two oldest are the Joy of My Heart flat fold from Lori Birmingham and Summer Arbor from the The Drawn Thread. The flat fold will be perfect as the next finishing project for the Focus on Finishing pin keep class (August 18th and 19th) and will only take a couple of days to stitch. And I know from past experience that the Summer Arbor will only take a week of train rides to complete because that is all the other three took.

It looks great to me! Did you use the specialty floss called for in the chart?

Looking lovely, and everytime I see one of your update photos I'm tempted to purchase the pattern.

One thing that we always do here is lay our piece over something white to check out the colors. When things are framed they are usually put over white board with a piece of batting to add a little depth to the piece. When you put the white behind it you can really tell how the colors are going to show up when finished. Love you stitching. You do such a good job and are always so fast.
