I thought I would share a progress picture with you today. My friend Ellen and I are working on this sampler titled "Emmanuel" by Carolina House Designs. I am really enjoying the colors and playing with the specialty stitches. The picture doesn't do it justice. I don't typically iron until I finish a piece so I apologize for the messy picture. The colors are beautiful. The blue bargello row is my favorite so far. The row I am working on now has some bullion knots. I can't wait to see how those turn out. I also have some over one bees to add around the hive but I am not sure how to anchor my threads on the back for 4 over one stitches especially when 2 of them are black. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them. I only work on this piece when Ellen and I get together and since summer is approaching my stitching time on this one will be limited.
I want to wish everyone a Happy Father's Day. My husbands request for today is a Lobstah Roll for lunch. So off we go, headed to Cape Cod to find some Lobstah!! Have a great day and Happy Stitching!!
