As I have taken this Summer off from regular Guild and stitch group meetings (the last is next Wednesday — hurray!), I’m trying to finish as much as possible out of my studio. More productivity, less gas to put into the tank. I brought two projects (both cross-stitch) with me to the lake this weekend, not knowing what the light would be like. It was good enough to work on an antique-like design done in black on “swamp” dyed linen from Picture This Plus. I’m about 1/3 done with the main stitching and I still have to choose which raspberry/pink thread to use for the accent stitches. Stay tuned for progress updates and pictures.
