All Things July

Quick post tonight! I finished July by PS. Used 32 ct lambswool jobelan and the suggested DMC. This one took alittle longer than usual but was worth it.


Started July by Drawn Thread. I have had a thing for patriotic designs this year. I think that this will be the last one for this year. I am doing it on 32 ct Rue Green and am using the suggested NPI silks and SNC. Those little trees are really neat. They are done in an elongated smyrna cross.

Jane from quiltsmiles is going to be receiving the magazine, Cross stitch and Needlework's. Check your email, Jane.


Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah

Lovely stitching. I haven't cross-stitched in so long. Can't imagine working on linen. I can barely see well enough to work on 14 count unless I don my reading glasses and have sufficient lighting. :) Best wishes, Tammy

The Prairie Schooler piece is wonderful. I love their designs. The Drawn Thread start looks great. The good thing about these is they do stitch up really quick :)
Have a great Monday!

Bekca said...

Congrats on your lovely finish and great progress on your new start - I look forward to watching this one grow. Happy stitching.

Myra said...

Fabulous finish Deborah and your new start looks very promising too. All that solid stitching in the center of the PS piece might have had something to do with it taking longer. :o) You just can't beat a PS seasonal piece in my opinion.
