Currently I'm using our three-week check-ins to keep myself on task with an embroidered block of the month program. I've managed to make good progress on the block for May (which I hadn't begun until June):
You may not be able to tell, but I have yet to stitch the stems and leaves for the flowers. I had James trace off the pattern for me this time. I must say the lines are much easier to see! I think I'll have him use a soft lead pencil next time however. The pink floss just barely covers the brown Pigma ink lines. He used the finest point pen I have on hand.
There's a whole flock of us using this Stitch Along to keep ourselves on track with an assortment of needlework projects. You can see what everyone else has accomplished by clicking on their names below. If you'd like the motivation of being held accountable (but we're really nice about it 😇) stop by Avis' blog and leave a comment. See you on 8 July!
