Time for an update on projects that I have worked on in May!
Most of my stitching time has been spent on the HAED Challenge piece — Mini Be Good for Goodness Sake. I am stitching on 18 count tan aida 2 over 1. This is page one, I have about 1000 stitches to finish the page — that will also complete this challenge!!
I took a couple of days off from Santa stitching and dusted off another goldie, oldie from R&R Reproduction Samplers. This is Emma Elliot, I started this exactly 20 years ago. It was a class that I took with the designers and this is the first time I have worked on it since the class. I am stitching on 40 count Irish Creme linen with DMC.
This is the photo of the finished piece as shown on the front of the pattern.
Yep, I have a long way to go. The stitch count is 329 x 284. Stitches used include: marking cross, seven step cross and four sided along with regular cross stitch.
In the evenings I usually knit or crochet. At this time, I have two knit projects that I have been rotating between. When I am watching something that I want to concentrate on, I work on the bandages for the DOVE foundation since those require little attention. A bit more attention is needed for my afghan project that I have shown before. This is getting big, probably about 4+ feet right now and there are about 3 more skeins to knit.
