...There's no sun up in the sky, stormy weather...Well, it is rainin' all over town here on the Monterey Peninsula. Rain is one of the happiest sounds I know of. It is so peaceful and so relaxing. It made for a perfect stitchy night. I got to watch the eliminations on The Voice tonight and stitch. So here is my progress, thus far...
I am working on the backstitching and getting those little odds and ends cross stitches in. I really wish that you could see how truly vibrant the colors are in person. This is so beautiful. I should have the first square totally completed this weekend. I am going to do the vines on the border all at once. I am so happy with how this is turning out. It really will be an heirloom piece when it is done.
This is a really challenging piece, however, it is so beautiful. If you have this OOP pattern in your collection, it is totally worth it to go ahead and stitch it. I happen to like challenges and BAPs so this is working for me. :)
I believe that all of us continue to hold the survivors of Sandy in our thoughts and prayers. There are moments when I am watching the news where I join these good people in their tears. So many have lost absolutely everything. So many are cold and still without electricity. May they know comfort and peace.
Be well and stay safe.
