Hither and yon

I have added the north Fleur-de-lis, after I worked more of the outside border. The east to south one is completely finished and I also started the north to west one, but ran out of the Medici. I left the other hank of it at home on the stitching stand. So, I started filling in the outside border at the top with the Needle Necessities overdyed. This is done with a running stitch, first in one direction and then coming back and crossing it with a second thread in the other direction. So I am stitching here and there because I did not double check the project bag, but at least I did get quite a bit more of this worked--just not in the order the stitch guide suggested.

Now I get it-a fleur de lis in each corner! This probably is lovely in person, Pat. Wish I could see it better. I suppose you'll just have to loan it to me.

Jane, sticking out her tongue at Judy cause I yelled dibs! first LOL

Tell Jane she is a late-comer. We already discussed this a long time ago - that the iris in this color is my favorite flower, etc. etc. The needlework is beautiful.

Yes, Jane only four of them and I am afraid that Judy does have dibbs on this one....Next photo will be better..

Hi Pat,

Don't you just hate it when you forget some of the threads for a project? Argh!!!

Well at least you are still making progress and it will work.

By the way, I love doing padded Gobelin stitches for an outline.

Hope you are having a wonderful time at the wedding and staying dry. Major thunderstorms through the mid-Atlantic again tonight and are forecast for tomorrow.
