I am taking my time machine quilting Ladies of the Sea so I don't really have any different pictures of the progress there. Because that quilt is currently at the sewing machine I have only been prepping Sally Post blocks but not actually appliquéing them, so no new pictures there...
But, I have been doing a lot of stitching on my reproduction sampler from the Scarlet Letter blog stitch along.
I am stitching this on linen which continues to be a challenge, my mind just takes in all the holes not the counting over two threads. I think it would also be a little easier if the threads were even size but on this homespun linen some are thick and some are thin.
None the less I am keeping at it and it is daily growing into a beautiful piece. The linen count is 25 threads per inch and I am using silk embroidery floss, soie d'alger, that has a wonderful sheen to it.
Happy stitching all and have a good weekend.
PS - Look at the little surprise these yellow tulips had when they opened. Red stripes, and no they are not from my yard they are from Walmart : )
