Well, finally the stitching on this canvas is down to the wings on the 8 pelicans. Finally! My husband who never seems to notice what I'm stitching has become an absolute nudge about when this canvas will be finished. I finally told him this afternoon that it only seemed like never.
I started stitching the knotted stitch on the pelican to the far left. It looks too tight and small a stitch considering the other stitches. I think I'm going to pick it out, though the knotted stitch is even less fun to frog than it is to stitch. Sigh!
This isn't the clearest picture for which I apologize. My camera was yammering at me to change the batteries, but I wanted to get the photographs so I could blog. And who wants a nagging camera, anyway? The batteries are now being charged for my next great photographic moment!
I did manage to complete the Victorian step stitch on the 3rd pelican from the right. It's one of my favorite stitch, I think because of the smooth diagonal line of long stitches. It has such a different look.
On another note, Needle Nicely sold 2 rugs this past week. One was sold on Small Business Saturday so the purchaser could buy the yarn at 20% off. The other was a selection by a first-time visitor to Needle Nicely who was on her way to catch a cruise ship in Miami. I like those detours!
