Lighthouses, finished

What is wrong with this picture?

If you look closely, you'll see that the "windows" of the 4 right-hand lighthouses have the stitches slanting toward the right.  The last lighthouse (the red & white one) has the stitches slanting toward the left.  Oops!
Here is a closer view:

Blogger never ceases to amaze me--that's why that photograph is on the far right.  Trust me, it isn't where I had intended for it to be.

I absolutely despise taking out.  In fact, truth be known, I sometimes over-stitch rather than rip.  However, as I am growing older, I am also becoming more prone to error.  Shhh!  You didn't hear me admit that since I am obviously perfect because I am a needlepoint professional (slight giggle).

The red and white stripes are done in the Byzantine #2.  I saved the white caps until last and stitched them in continental using white Sparkle rays.

 It was pleasant this past weekend, with both a golf tournament and a tennis tournament to choose from to watch while stitching.  And I finished!  Massive drum roll.

NOTE:  This was to have posted Saturday while I was at the Baltimore market.  Don't know why it didn't.  Ah, well!

  1. Looks great! I would leave the windows! I love having a little 'quirk' in my finished pieces, but I also understand if it's something that your eye gets drawn to every time you look at it!

    Hope you had a great time in Baltimore and stocked up on lots of goodies for the year!
