Hopefully I can show you pictures of the needlework I've been doing this time around. 😏
A lot of the stitchers in this Stitch Along do cross stitch. I've shared my needlepoint in the past. I've certainly got needlepoint canvases I could use for this SAL, checking in on progress every three weeks. But lately I've been working on a stitch wrap, a long narrow piece of muslin I'm covering with various pieces of fabric, embroidery, and miscellaneous embellishments as a sort of visual journal. This was the very beginning, back in June:
I might have shown you this section in July...
In August I added some leaves to the flowers I'd put in earlier. The flowers were made with multi-strand flosses in cotton and silk. The leaves were done with a size 12 perle cotton. I found a vendor on Etsy who sells hand painted threads and I have fallen in love with the #12 perle cottons.
I was coming to the end of my foundation but wasn't ready to end the project so I added another strip of muslin.
Now I can't take a picture of the whole thing in one shot! (Not that I ever could.) The plan is to wrap this around a spool eventually, although that won't necessarily help with the photography. Here's a shot of the back. Sunny has proved that showing the back of our work sometimes makes it easier to see how much progress has been made!
Here's the link list for the other participants in this SAL. Everyone is working on their own project. As long as my health holds up I'll be catching up on what they've been doing for the last six weeks!
