Half Irish!

Mid week on a cold July night is as good a time as any to post my current efforts.
Tonight I can show around half of the Ireland band of my sampler UK Trip Book Cover.   The left hand side is stone castle in three shades of grey and I grew weary of that so moved to the right hand side with its three to four shades of green!   That's not a tree on the right - a stone St Patrick's cross is my guess and the green beyond is probably depicting the Emerald Isles?   The row of shamrocks was tedious but is most effective and I do like the two spinning wheels.   Sky, castle and yet more green remain.   Then I move to Scotland which fortunately, has lots of my favourite blue.
This is a fun stitch on which I have upped the frustration levels by stitching over one.   But I'm almost halfway done and there's a great deal of satisfaction in that.
Have a happy evening everyone.

  3. I look forward to seeing the Scottish part Margaret. I don't know how you have the patience for over one is such quantity - I know that I would have given up, well done you.

  7. It looks gorgeous and it's really coming along. I love the detail that's added because you're stitching over one.
