Slow Sunday Stitching

 I’m continuing to work on my Harbour Village Sampler by Victoria Samplers. One of the many bonuses of doing weekly slow stitching posts is the ability to track a project’s progress. Last week I had the hills on the left side of the piece done. This past week has seen most of the hillside on the right done. I didn’t really think I’d gotten much done at all this past week, but comparing posts shows that I got a lot more done than I'd thought. There are blank spaces on some of the buildings waiting on a delivery of black floss and also white floss.

Our packing and getting ready to move is going well. Next weekend is moving time. It seems like it has been a long time coming, but at the same time it has gone by quickly. I will share pictures once we are up there. 

I’m going to continue on this project only for the next while since everything else is going to be packed away. Plus there is so much else going on, I think I might be easier to focus on just one project. The next time you hear from me, we will be in our new home.

Slow Sunday Stitching

 I have finished my Love Is Sampler. It is now folded carefully away. I have a frame for it already, but I’m waiting until after we move before I put the time in to get it into the frame. I bought short sequin pins to use for setting in onto the acid free foam core board. However, at the moment, I’m not too sure exactly where they are. In a box somewhere......

Here’s a picture of the whole thing and then close ups of the top section. I decided to place more words from the scripture passage into the box that describe what love does. and the bottom. 

After that was finished, I spent some time on my monthly Victoria Sampler piece. April is finished and I’m almost done the second instalment for May. 

And then I started a new piece. It’s called Harbour Village and it is also a design by Victoria Sampler. This one has a lot more cross stitch applied more densely than the other projects I have worked on recently so it is going to take a while. It reminds me of the town up in Muskoka where we will be living. Two more weeks..... We have most of the packing done and are currently living surrounded by boxes. The only thing left to pack up is the kitchen and personal stuff we need to live with between now and then. I am so looking forward to having this done, or at least this phase of it. We can unpack at our leisure once we are up there.
