Progress Report HCS 6

Hello there everyone.   Life has been a little too busy for blogging this week but I have been stitching.   Spain was finished as planned and I have now ventured into Scandanavia.  

This section is interesting as there are more specialty stitches.   These cute little eyelets were particularly pleasing. 


Here's a close up shot of the eyelets.  


That white satin stitch block to the upper left was accompanied by three lots of reverse stitching and a great deal of frustration but the finished result is worth all the angst.

While I have not quite finished this section I fully expect to do so over the weekend.   Then with the sampler half finished I am putting it away for a brief time as I want to make a stitched memory book for my god-daughters 18th birthday in July.   The designing and the wording have all been completed -  I have the fabric and threads selected and prepared so now I need to get my skates on and begin the stitching.   July will come soon enough!

Have a great evening everyone.

  4. Wow, that is some amazing stitching! I really like the eyelet stitches. Very pretty. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to reverse stitch satin stitching? You must have the patience of a Saint! I am a giant klutz and would probably end up ripping the linen.

    The memory book sounds like such a lovely idea. I can't wait to see it!
