Gratitude update

Since I switched to continental stitch I am having fun with Gratitude.  I wish I could work on her all the way through to finish but because she's such a small count it hurts my eyes to stitch on her for more than a couple of hours.  She's going to be so sweet!  Here's my latest photo.  She's very hard to photograph.  The needle is a petite sized needle.  I had to do a zoom on her and the shininess you see in the photo is actually a piece of plastic behind the fabric (which gives you an idea of how fine the fabric threads are).

This is such a sweet little piece, Terrie, isn't it?

I stitched this one a number of years ago and having it hanging in my hallway.

The stitches look so tiny...you must have great patience. This is going to look wonderful.

I am off to check out a continental stitch.

Gorgeus. Love the look of it. Those tiny stitching give it such a beautiful delicate look
