Not much done this month. 3 1/2 hours and 443 stitches. Thanks for looking!
Speedy and lovely stitching! You've gotten quite a bit done in so few hours. :-)
Great start and love that fabric.
Looking great though, and much neater than what I did - I wonder if stitching with two strandy was a mistake after all...
I have a question. I have been needlepointing for a relatively short time. I am not familiar with having all the threads hanging down. If you have time, would you tell me what is going on? Thanks!!Marsha Gibbons
It's called parking (at least that's the most common name). Since I stitch in rows, rather than one color at a time, after I finish with one color on a row, I "park" the thread in the next row down at the spot of that color's next stitch. I keep the needle in the thread; some people don't. There are videos on YouTube if you want to see it in action.
Very nice progress. I am so glad The Hubs didn't see this pattern...
