Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

March Madness – #2 and #3

#2 of 16 was a small Pine Mountain kit: America Spots

I started and finished on Sunday.  Total stitching: 7 hours (yes, it was a lazy lazy day).

#3 is Little House Needleworks Brave Hearts.  Haven’t touched this since January 2009 (yikes):

It’s on 40-ct linen (with one strand Belle Soie) and I remember thinking how tiny the stitches were and breaking out the magnifier to work on the flag.  Now, though, I don’t have any trouble!  Amazing how the stitching skills have improved over time.

Here we are 5.5 hours later:

The linen color in this pic is truer to reality.  You may be able to see the white silk in the top two windows.  I have at least one word (White) to stitch in that silk… I may have to outline it or something so it will show up.  It looks fine against other colors, but on its own blends in quite a bit.

On to #4….
