As I continue to work on this project...
the border is a repeat of country redwood
tulips and greenery.
I keep a small square of wool in my work basket.
On it, I store several needles. I leave two of
the needles always threaded with the two colors
used on the border. I keep working the border as I
fill in the motifs in the main area. This saves me
a little time...just a little, but worth it.
When I first started this project, I seriously wondered
if I had time to give this large cross stitch piece.
Kim, over at My Field Of Dreams,
told me she is tackling this design,
one motif at a time.
That 'clicked' with me and it all seems
perfectly doable !
Design is from Beth Twist from Heartstring Samplery.
There are several people stitching along on this
beautiful Counted Cross Stitch piece.
We would love to have you join us !

It's a rainy cooler day, here in Pennsylvania.
A good day for putting needle to cloth.
Enjoy your day...
