Dorothy Is Back....

but progress is slow. I am stressed over the over 1 stitches. The crosses on 40ct are very tiny and I am not happy with them! I jump over and start the next band, the eyelets - lots of them ha ha!

Can you see, only a few over 1 words?

I am happy that all the satin stitch alphabets are done, they are a joy to stitch!

The other reason for Dorothy's slow progress is because I got distracted by other projects along the way ha ha!

I am at the final stage in my hardanger SAL. This last part consists of dove's eyes and buttonhole bars. They are all round the doily, between the row of klosters and the buttonholed edge. With multiple projects on going, it may take me a while to complete these!

A closer look at the little white flower, the edelweiss. Isn't it pretty?

My ornament for the month is done. I chose LHN Peppermint Twist, stitched on 32ct Amber Linen using DMC and overdyed threads.

Isn't this bag beautiful? It's a gift from my friend, Kristine. She even made a small pouch to go with the bag. I love them, thank you very much Kris!

Next update, I will show works done on Summer. Thank you for visiting my blog. All your comments are greatly appreciated!

Happy Easter!
