      I did more work on my initial 'C'. If you click on the photo, it turns right side.
      I am thankful for this project at this time of year. Just my husband and me, no kids. One gathering on Christmas day with hubby's nephew & sister, 8 total. Thank you Alex

      And the stitching continues

        Ok, finally got my background pieced yesterday and started a little stitching today. I am really enjoying getting back to hand stitching / embroidery…Especially with the beautiful fabric and thread in the kits. Thanks Alex

          Suzanne I embroidered a lot in my twenties, always using a pattern. Then crounted cross stictch years later, and used a lot of letters then. How I came up with this letter was just googling hand embroidery stitches & clicked images. I don't do pinterest, but I'm sure there's a lot there too.

            I’m really enjoying this project. It’s such a challenge to work with a neutral only palette- but that’s my favorite part! I think I have all the circles I need, either started or drawn, so now it’s time to learn new stitches.

                The teal, lime green and orange are really bringing this to life

                I agree…very easy to get immersed. Your stitching is beautiful

              I make a jacket from my Grandmother Hayes' hankies & did two dolls embroidering the face, hair, arms, etc. I also did a butterfly. I used her butons as the band on the dresses & a big button for the face of the butterfly. She was 106 yrs. old when she passed away. Everyone can't believe I did this.I used straigh stitches, slip stitches & satin stitches for the flower centers. Thought you would love to see it.

                you buy at Michaels or any big box store. Just thought you might like to see it. HelenW

                    I
                    I am really enjoying this project! I went digging in my old cross stitch and embroidery supplies and got really excited to be stitching again. I had some perle cotton and bought some (okay- a lot more!). I found a fat quarter of black woven fabric in my Stacy and decided to use that. This is what I have so far.

                      Donna - I just LOVE this! Filling up the spaces between the shapes is a great idea.

                      Thanks Carol, I looked at lots of embroidery projects on Pinterest and I saw several that filled in with little patterns.

                    I’m so obsessed with this. Have enjoyed all of your classes over the last year
