Jane Turner is the only project I’ve worked on this month and the Silly Stitching Calendar says I had 21 (!) stitching days since TUSAL check in.
Still working on the wide Montenegrin stitch band, and would probably have finished it by now if it weren’t for those diagonal parts which have continued to give trouble. But ALL the Montenegrin stitching in this band is complete - there’s some filling yet to be done on the flowers and leaf on the right and also that knot motif and inside the long green double line, but should be able to finish it up by the end of the week (I hope, I hope).
I think the knot in the center is pretty neat.
The middle portion was rather cool all by itself too.
The entire band so far (and yes, I've continued to make adjustments to satisfy my
obsession with desire for symmetry):
It’s finally springtime here! Apparently things were just waiting for a bit of warmth – flowers and trees and have just exploded open. And the hostas – yikes! They always surprise me by how fast they grow – sometimes I think they get taller while I watch.
Happy stitching, everybody – I’m so glad you stopped by today!
