Stitching this month was solely on Jane Turner, still working on Band 8. Got a fair amount accomplished, even though the ort pile is puny.
Now I’m going to cheat a bit. Most of this lunar month’s stitching was in trellis stitch, where you cannot end your thread within a row – only at one end or the other. So when there wasn’t enough thread for another row, I was cutting off several inches at least – far too much to consider an ort and certainly a lot of those bits will be used elsewhere in the sampler. So, here are my non-ort snippets.
The Silly Stitching Days Calendar has 9 check marks since the last TUSAL report. Too bad there aren’t more weekend days each month!
Now, how is Jane looking? First, a peek at the doodle cloth – practicing Montenegrin diagonally and then turning from that to horizontal stitching. Thank goodness for Amy Mitten’s autopsy book!! Also practiced switching back and forth between two colors.
Jane Turner, Band 8 – truly only a bit of progress since my last post.
Happy stitching, all!
