The Olde World Map

I’ve been spending some time this week on the Map. I still love it – however long it takes! I ought to put it away though and continue the surprise – but that keeps going wrong :-(

However, here is the update:

As you can see the bottom detail is nearly all stitched and a lot of the empty space is starting to be filled with the pattern. I have done some of the outlining as well as there is so much to do. I really love this piece, however time consuming it is.

There are two areas of backstitch that I have completed – the edging and one of the crests:

I love this, even if it is taking a long time :-)

It’s back out! As there is so much backstitch I have been doing that as well as the normal cross stitch. I’d forgotten how much I love making this and how much I love watching this grow. Here is where I am up too:

I’ve been doing some more work on this piece. I had forgotten how fun this is to stitch :-)

After finished The Mini Cottages IV I decided to get the Olde World Map out again. I decided to work on the bottom left again. Here is what is did look like:

It now looks like this:
