Justine, after 5 months...

Wow, I've been stitching this daily for 5 months!! I'm a slow, inefficient stitcher, and it's a big chart ... but I'm making progress! I absolutely love this pattern.

I do regret, though, sticking with linen floss for the blue color. My only option was a light baby blue, and I know it would look better with something like a deep turquoise. Oh, well, c'est la vie!


  1. Hi Laura,
    I've been watching you stitch on this piece and just had to post a comment to you. I think you are doing a beautiful job on this picture. I absolutely adore it.
    I'm a slow stitcher too, but that's okay. We aren't in a race. Stitching should be relaxing and fun and joyful. Those qualities show in your lovely piece. Keep up the good work!

  2. I think that it looks wonderful in the colors that you're using. I stalled out before I finished page 2, but only because Ann Medd was screaming so hard to be worked on. I'll be back to Justine soon.

  3. Thank you both for the nice comments! Deb, I can't wait to see your progress on Ann Medd. That is one of my absolute favorites.
