I learned the other day from one of my sisters that a soldier from my hometown was killed in Afghanistan last month and I wanted to make a memorial for his mother, being a veteran and married to a retired soldier this means a lot to me. I just had to add another item to my modified rotation.
I think most people have a set time period to stitch on each of their projects, mine is a little different, I set how much of the chart I want to finish at a time before I rotate to one of the other items. Since my last post I have made some progress on everything:
Green goddess has all of the backstitching on the face and wreath, also the beginnings of the border.
12 Days of Christmas has a finished partridge in a pear tree.
Black and White has two complete figures.
The memorial is “Red, White & Blue” by Vicki Hastings from The Cricket Collection it is being stitched 2x2 on 32ct Belgium linen. The blue is DMC #4240, the red is DMC #4180, the white is DMC# 5200 and the gold stars are DMC metallic gold. This is what I have done so far.
Back to making those little xxs.
