It didn't feel like I stitched much this weekend. I had to work both days and Saturday, at work, I read instead of stitching between patrons. I didn't get started on the vine til I got home on Saturday night. And then I had to keep frogging it. I finally got it figured out, though, and I started working on the leaves yesterday morning, while waiting for church to start; I was in the parking lot, I can't stitch in church, it doesn't feel right to me. I kept working on them at work, and, after more frogging, I got those done. I tell you, I felt kinda stupid, because I couldn't figure out how the leaves were supposed to "happen"; it made sense on the chart, but did not make sense in my head on the fabric. I hate those moments.
As you can see, I got it all worked out. I'm glad to be done that vine, glad that it all came together right. I'm working on the flower thing, even though it vaguely reminds me of those big orchid things that open once a year and smell like rotten meat. I see this kind of flower a lot on samplers. What is it supposed to be?
Now that I'm close to the end, I'm so glad to see this thing almost done. My chart is starting to tear. I think I'm going to do a giveway. Normally I wouldn't go that route with a fraying chart, but this is a desirable one, so I'm sure someone would be happy for it.
