Stitched on perforated paper, this is my progress---that's a 15 inch log piece of paper. It's a lot of stitches!
And last was this design from The Drawn Thread. I put the final stitches in it this morning. I changed it up a bit by adding beads and mixed smyrna crosses in with the algerian eyes. Got an idea of how I am finishing it....but that is another day.
I have been working on it for about a half hour each morning assembling the rows before work. I am ready to make that quilt sandwich and put on the binding which will have to wait. Mr. William is coming for a visit next weekend. He is coming by train and of course he is bringing his mom with him. I need to decommission the dining room as quilt central for their visit.
And trust me, all my corners do not meet so nicely. I was editorial with what I shared!
And a class finish to share. I took a class in the end of June with Beth Seal of Summer House Stitche Workes at Stitches Unlimited in Lancaster PA. It is called "My Grandmother's Needlebook"
Here I have it paired here with a bag I purchased from Faye Rigsby, The Carolina Stitcher. This was from the Prim Stitchers Retreat. Beth Seal provided the motif to attendees prior to the retreat. If we brought the stitched piece and two 1/2 yards of fabric, Carolina Stitcher made you a bag
This has become my grab and go bag for working or when heading out the door to a friends to stitch.
Hope to keep up this wave of finished projects as well as hope to return to more frequent posts and more important to catch up on all the blog posts I have missed.
Thanks for stopping by and keep on stitching.
