First up is a small finish.
I fell in love with the idea of doing a memorial piece in memory of my daughter Jade and it seemed appropriate to stitch a piece made as a memorial. My DH helped to pick the lovely bright blue and I am very happy to have stitched this piece.
Here is a pic of the finished piece.
There are two new starts to talk about.
The first is DH's Dragon Rip by Stokes. He experimented with 28 ct. evenweave and didn't really like it, so decided on 14 ct. aida. He stitches with really tight tension so he is doing it with 4 strands. Here is a pic of him with his fabric.
That is the top of his head at the top above the fabric.
DH wanted me to make a new start with him so I picked Glamour, which I was planning to begin on our anniversary in September. I am doing it differently this time. 18 ct. and working the background in 4 over one tent stitch, or rather basketweave stitch and will probably do regular 2 over 1 crosses for the main picture. I could take a pic but the background stitching and my fabric color are so similar I don't think it would show very well.
And to wrap up, a pic of He Who Must Be Obeyed.
Happy Stitching this week.
