Only another six diamonds to go to the halfway-and-a-bit point and then another six to go after that.
But tonight I folded the hem in to assess whether the size was as I had originally calculated. Yippee - it will be just right. But it certainly needs the drawn thread and hem stitched border I plan.
However I am going to take a break at the half way point and give this piece a rest. Besides which I think the stitcher needs a break too :-)
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
