Miss Bingley’s Library progress 5-27-22

I have made some good progress stitching on this chart this week.  Filled i all the windowpanes, finished the large expanse of roof and finished a lot of white on the house.   Last night I finally switched to stitching the words since I was tired of stitching white.

You may remember I’m rearranging the last two lines of text so it does not split the word “excellent” onto two lines.  I still have more white to stitch on the house.

But, Memorial Day weekend snuck up on me. I realized about Wednesday that hey, I don’t have to work on Monday.  So according to my list of planned starts, I had planned to do a patriotic start this weekend.  So I’m off to go peruse the charts to see what I want to start tonight so I can get the floss and fabric pulled and get to work on it after dinner.

  1. Oh, this is so cute. That is a lot of white! What floss are you using for the white? And, I am glad you changed the text. Excellent split in two lines really bugged me, lol.

  2. I would like to make this piece too, may I ask what aida color you used? The Liberty gathering gray by R&R reproductions isn’t currently available. Maybe something similar?

    • I know it was one I got from ToDyeForFabricsNMore on etsy but I lost the card for it. Its a very dark tan/brownish color – darker than it looks in my photo fo the stitch. If you click on the 2022 All the cross stitchy stuff link at the top of the blog, there’s a photo of a bunch of fabrics and I think it is the top one on the stack which is a truer color.

  3. That is coming out lovely- can’t wait to see this weekends start! Enjoy the long weekend.
