The Present!

So I have been working on this again. It is coming along nicely – I hope the recipient likes it! The back stitch is tough as it isn’t neatly along the edge. However it does make the pattern look good

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:

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:
