Thanks everyone for your assurances that I am not, in fact, the slowest stitcher in the world. Sometimes it just feels that way, but I have to also remind myself, that I also choose to spend time doing other things than stitching (quel horreur!). So, I am now home and will see if I can make some more progress on Quaker Garden while we watch the rest of a show on pirates that was on the History channel. I also want to thank all the wonderful new people that have left comments – I greatly appreciate it. It is so inspiring to continue to stitch and write and get feedback from people on what you are doing. Thanks!
I do think I need to stop reading other people’s blogs though, because I am easily enabled. I found my way over to Mia’s blog and saw her progress (above) on Tesori D’Italia. It is beautiful. I love Terre de France, and had heard it rumored that an Italian equivalent existed, but had never seen it. Now I have seen it and it is beautiful. My husband’s mother’s side of the family is Italian and we went to Rome for our honeymoon. Now, that I have seen this, I simply must stitch it. I love Mia’s idea of using the red and green instead of monochromatic. There is a link on the Tesori page where you can see some in-progress and some finished ones.
Off to stitch!
I am grateful for choice.
