Staying with the promise to myself to only have two projects going at one time, here is the update for the month.
I’m still working on my Cats on a Staircase stocking. It was here last month”
I’ve finished two more cats and some of the spindles on the staircase have been started. Just above the siamese cat will be just the head of a cat that is peeking around the spindle that will be stitched just to the right of the siamese cat. There are still two more whole cats to go after that.
The other project I want to get done is the Norfolk Diligence Sampler. It was here last month:
The border on the left side is just about done – only about 3 more rows of blue to finish it off. And I’ve added a few blue stitches so you can see where the border fits across the bottom. The first octagon is completed and I’ve been outlining the next two octagons so I can get the second one started. Here is it today:
I’m hoping my hands feel better and I’ll get more done over the next month. I’d like to have the stocking finished by then and one more octagon finished on the sampler plus more of the bottom border. The over one stitching inside the octagons is very difficult for me and I’m sure I’ll never do another project on 40 ct that has parts stitched over one thread. That’s what is really slowing me down on this project.
