Stitch Along Check-in

When last I showed you this small needlepoint Stitch & Zip case I'd only put in some of the background.


Since then I have begun to make the color changes I kept seeing in my mind's eye when I considered this project.


This is labeled as an English crown but I guess my Irish is coming through! Every time I looked at the design I saw an emerald green velvet cap surrounded by a framework of gold. I'm not quite sure what I'll do about the gem stones indicated. Since the background is white, pearls may be out of the running.

There are stitchers  around the world participating in this SAL. We check in every three weeks. It's amazing how helpful a deadline can be. If you'd like to get motivated in this way drop Avis an email. We're welcoming Helen to the group this time - welcome Helen!


See you in December!

Sue, I'm not Irish, but I think the dark green is an excellent choice!

Thank you for the kind welcome Sue. I am hoping that the thought of showing my progress will be the spur I need make me move on some of my wips.
Looking forward to seeing your work progress
Helen

I prefer your alternate colour scheme too! And emeralds and rubies would be in agreement with this Irish crown, I feel. Lovely!

What a lot of fun! I was wondering what SAL meant. Now I know.
