Norfolk Diligence Sampler – Progress 15

It’s been a couple months since you saw this piece, and I still haven’t finished Page 6.  The top floor of the mansion is finished. I have backstitched the three chimneys and added two rows of light brown from Page 7 so I could outline the first window and its shutters. I just couldn’t wait to see how it would look. The rest will get done when the house is finished – when Pages 7 and 8 are done. I’ve also stitched most of the flowers on the right side border. I have one more white flower to stitch. I have to put the white petals on another one as well.

I’m working on the night sky and moon too. The moon is done and I hope to get the rest of that done this weekend.

Besides finishing the night sky and one more white flower, there are still a couple more little details to the right of the small roof – plants, but a little different from the ones on the left. This panel with the house is all I’ve worked on this year so far and I can’t believe how slow it’s going. I just don’t have as much time to stitch right now.

  1. This sampler is pretty dense with stitches, Jan, so don’t worry about going slow. What you’ve done so far is very pretty. I like that it’s a bold sampler, and not one with muted colors. I love the border. It reminds me of ribbon trim.

  2. Slow but steady wins the race, your project looks gorgeous. I like how the day and night side of the house are contrasted 🙂
