Stitching with Lizzie – Week 27

Elizabeth Mears at Week 27

Wow — what a difference a week makes!  The castle is stitching up quickly — even for me, one of the slowest stitchers on the planet.  Once the gable is complete, the remaining stitching is simple cross stitch. Perhaps an August finish??

I’ve tried a couple different ways to work the checkerboard brick work — putting in a whole section of white and then filling in with the brown, working on a diagonal, putting in the brown and then filling in the white….etc.  In my opinion, it is easiest to work in horizontal rows with two needles — put in the white, fill in the brown and then drop to the next row.
