Well the the way my Sunday Stitches projects started out is they are a project that I would stitch on on Sundays. But the problem I have is that I enjoy stitching on them so much that I don’t want to put them down. That’s what happened with Deck the Halls. I started this late Sunday afternoon or early evening, and then stitched on it last night and here’s where I will pick it back up tonight.
I love the mottling in the fabric – not a lot but enough to add a bit of interest. And it’s nice to stitch on a larger count for a change – this is 14 count with two strands. I’ve got the lighter green to add to those half dark green leaves, the words “Deck The” and then just some berries to add. The berries are done in a specialty stitch so I may do a “as close as I can” aida equivalent, just do some regular crosses or maybe french knots. I haven’t decided on that yet.
