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.

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 :-)

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:

The Olde World Map and Greek Islands

I have decided to put the Map aside until we move, but this is where I got up too:

While I am waiting to move I am working on a bookmark by Michael Powell – the Greek Island one:

This 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 :-)

The Map is Back!

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:

Map Away, Cottage Out

I have spent a lot of time on the Olde World Map, but have decided to put it away for a while. Here is how far I got up to on the quarter I was doing:

Here is an overall progress picture:

Not great photography but you get the general idea!

I have decided to go back to the Cottage and Bridge piece I was working on. This is the design:

And here is where I left off:

It clearly needs an iron but it should be fun to stitch this again.

Map Update

I’ve been able to give this some more time, and I think it is looking great:

I haven’t had much time for stitching or blogging, but here is where I am up too:

I’m still loving this design! I’m not sure I’ll be able to give it away….
