36 Down, 10 Left

 Gentle Friends, I thought an overall shot was due about now, and here's a snaperoo...


... I went ahead and stitched through the vine to see where, if any, mistakes were made and by some miracle, it matched up!!  So, now it's going back and stitching in the leaves and the rest of the "strawberries."  Those strawberries are stitched in Belle Soie's "Teddy Bear" and I'm trying to mix up the over-dyed browns so that not too many are dark or light, but a nice mix.  The three skeins I have of this silk are each very different dye lots so it is an easy task.

Border Stitching

 Gentle Friends, stitching away on Ann, here's a snaperoo...


...so I've popped off the old Q-Snap for the snap so you can see the border.  I'm almost at the top right turn to come down the right side.  It's usually at this point I start overthinking things and nerves get the best of me... thinking the vine might just not match up... I may just bottom stitch the vine around to see if I'm worrying for nothing... as I am wont to do...

A Duck, a Squirrel and Some Birds...

 Gentle Friends, just moving along with Miss Ann... here's a snaperoo...


... another craptastic snap, unironed and not very flat, but you get the idea.  I am enjoying the stitch on this piece and really like this "spot" motif sampler.  Although visually even-ish, there is some wonkiness yet to come... and there is a big house slap-dab in the middle.  It was another super weekend here by the Bay.  Two lovely breezy days in the low 60's, I do love summertime in SF!!

A Vine, A Bird and a Flower

 Gentle Friends, stitching away on Miss Ann with a little progress to show, here's a snaperoo...


... it's nice that the border is sort of regular and even... I keep looking at the bundle of silks on the ring and see that this will be a very "brown" sampler overall.  That's OK, it'll be a fun stitch and a nice piece when completed.
