I'll begin with Aurora Cabin. I have a before and after picture taken, just to show you what I've done this weekend, along with a close up of the cabin. I spent a LOT of time backstitching this cabin...did I mention I HATE backstitching? LOL!!
I finished up a couple of pieces just for fun...an ornament...(which I can't show because it's a gift).
Last, but not least, is the top panel of the needlework casket I'm working on. I came to an impasse. Because I've chosen to stitch this on 20 count, with one strand of floss, lazy daisy stitches aren't turning out like they have for me in the past. I'm not sure I like where this is going. Another concern I have is the bullion knots for the flowers in the vine on the fence. I'm thinking of substituting a different stitch for the flowers. I sincerely need opinions...I considered spider roses...does anyone have any suggestions as a substitute? I'm truly in a quandary here.
Last week I hoped to get some finishes done, but I wound up with a sleepless week, and was too tired to think. I think I actually got some restorative sleep this weekend...so hopefully today I'll get those finishes done. I'll let you know soon!
I hope you all had a wonderful, productive weekend!
