Quaker Street

Hello everyone!

I started this piece last year (New Year, New Start) and it was my weekend stitching project, sometimes I also stitched this during the week.
When I decided to add the last stitches in the last week of 2018, I noticed that I forget to stitch the letter “N”. I riped out all the stitches till the letter “M” and I re-started. And now is done!

Design by Marjorie Massey – Quaker Street.
Stitched on 40 count Early America hand dyed linen by Barbaral Creations with Carriage Black floss by The Gentle Art.

This piece have some wonderful motifs! Some of my favourites is the cat and the sun!

Thanks for visiting!
Have a great day! Happy stitching!

Review 2018

Hello! Happy New Year!

Last year during the weekends I stitched a quaker piece, my intention was to show it today, but with the Christmas season been so busy I did not finished in time, I also made a big mistake in one part of the quaker and I need to frog it… Big failure to me… So I will show it in my next post. Big failure is also the number of stitched pieces that I did not frame… I also made three starts that I never posted about it for lack of progress… I really enjoy each piece from last year! I also learned how to knit, but I aware that I am quite slow in knitting…. I’m knitting a cowl since November…

So lets take a look at my 2018 year review stitching:
