In February 2013 I went down to Williamsburg, Virginia for a stitching retreat. I have had all of the stitching done for a while now but I hadn’t completed the finishing. I had the needle book done in 2014 but it was only this weekend that I finished the scissors case and the floss purse. I’ve never been great at mitred corners but I think these ones are pretty good.
I have been working on Santa for a few years now. I am on the top half and have done most of his face.
I hadn’t been posting a lot lately but now I’m in the mood. I have been curious about Chicken Scratch Embroidery/Gingham Embroidery since I saw a mention of it on Mary Corbet’s site Needle n’ Thread. I got a kit to make a table cloth and am currently working on the centre portion of the fabric. The pattern uses double sided cross stitch. I love the shade of green…it makes me think of spring. Next I want to try the Christmas tree ornament.
I have not been posting but as always I have been stitching. Here is the latest pic of DMD. I’ve got 75% of the stitching done and have started in on the last panel.
