Here's my stitching progress and a little aside. I set a self-imposed goal to complete this by my EGA meeting in September to add it to the WIP Contest we are having. I made the visual survey of the pattern thinking I will have to really push that needle to complete it.
Only a week later when I looked at the color pattern did I realize the alphabet at the bottom of the pattern was only for charting purposes. Yeah! Silly me, I had wrongly assumed it was like a sampler with the alphabet and numbers across the bottom. I am so glad I made that incorrect assumption because now I have my needle on fire knowing I can get this puppy moved to the finished column by the September meeting.
Number 9 of 15 biscournu squares. This is my carry-along stitching project with most stitching done pool-side at work at lunchtime. (Yes, we have a beautiful Olympic sized pool and gorgeous grounds in the back courtyard area of our campus for employees and their family. Spoiled on all sides aren't I?)
