The Olde World Map

Olde World MapI’m very excited to announce that I finally finished The Olde World Map! I finished it last June, a couple of weeks before I gave birth. We have only just found the time to frame it and put it up but I am so glad it is now on the wall. This took me nearly 3 years to make – although I did have some breaks from it. Most of the time I loved making it and it is now on display in my hallway. I am really, really pleased with it.

The Olde World Map

I have put this one away as I am making a present for someone but I made some good progress with the bottom left corner:


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 :-)

I have spent some time at my parents recently so I have been working on my piece there:

At home I started a new section on The Olde World Map. The first corner is not finished but  I fancied a change:

Switching Projects

Well I have decided to put away the anniversary sampler until the next UFO. Here is where I have got up to:

This is starting to look good, but to be honest, it is a bit boring!

I am moving back to the Olde World Map:

I love stitching this!
