My stitching weekend started Thursday night with It's About Time. I added another 300 stitches.
The detail on this one still amazes me.
Friday's stitching was Shakespearean Fantasy
Not a lot of progress but I did finish all the green in the column and 150 or so more black stitches.
While I didn't get as much stitching time as I would have liked on Saturday and Sunday, I did finish
Secret Victorian Garden.
I started this one on January 1, 2007 when it was called Mystery X. I kept up with the monthly parts until August when I started packing for my move to Virginia. It was in and out of the rotation, more out than in, for most of the next eight or so years, but The Hubs wanted me to enter something big in the needlework competition at the State Fair this fall, so out it came.
It is stitched on 32-count Carol's Meadow Jobelan from Silkweaver with the called for threads and beads. I think I bought the kit from Drema at Needlecraft Corner (they don't carry Chatelaine kits anymore but are a really good source for materials).
The random project picker picked Winter Watergarden to take Secret Victorian Garden's spot once I get back to my regular rotation. I will be back stitching Christmas Soldiers next weekend and now have two wedding samplers to finish for next year as DNiece called a couple of weeks ago to tell me she's engaged.
