Sunday Stitches – 1-9-22

Here’s where I was where I had left off on Christmas Sampler in Red prior to my picking this up to stitch on it last Sunday.

I worked on it all day Sunday and then I enjoyed working on this one so much I decided to work on it last Monday also.  So two days of working on this project before putting it away and I made tons of progress.

The thread is DMC 115 which is a a variegated thread with a bit longer spacing in the dying moving from one shade to the next.  I just pulled a thread at random letting the shading fall where it may.  I do like that both trees ended up being in the brightest red shading.    I picked this up again last night after midnight and only that the bird/boughs on the upper right and half the border to finish and got this all done before going to sleep last night.

I love how this turned out (don’t I always say that) but this is so pretty with the shading of the floss and of course it has those red birds on it.  It’s small – the stitched area is 6.5″ square.  So this is my second finished stitch of 2022 and I will need to pull out the bag of all my potential Sunday Stitches charts  (keeping with this year’s SS theme of stitches representing holiday songs) and see what I want to work on next and get it kitted up so I can make a start on it later today.

I’m waiting for a grocery order to be delivered so sounds like a good time to go pick the next chart to work on.  Does anyone else do Sunday Stitches and if so, what are you stitching on today?

  1. This is beautiful! Love all those shades of red and since you mentioned in the previous post that you like to complete a stitch as you go I can see how it matters with the color pooling. I bought some of that DMC floss in various colors so it’s great to see how it turned out.

  2. Just beautiful Denise and I am amazed at how quickly you get your stitching done. I am so impressed. Just stitched a Shephards Bush’s – To All a Good Night and it took me only a couple of weeks. Hopefully I’ll be able to FFO today.
