Jane Rees WIP

Hey everybody!  I wanted to sneak in here before we say goodbye to January and show you my progress on Jane Rees.  I'm working on the first of the four sided stitch alphabets. 
The four sided stitch is tedious but easy.  I find I get into such a rhythm with it that I have to keep checking what I've stitched so that I don't add extra squares to each letter.  The picture below, taken earlier in the week in better lighting, is a clearer representation of the color of the linen (36 count Sugared Coffee by Sassy's Fabrics) and thread (Belle Soie Sister Scarlet).

I love those alphabets Siobhan, it is looking great. February tomorrow - the days go quicker the older I get!
But the nights are drawing out - at last - so hopefully Spring cannot be too far away - hurray! x

Sugared coffee sounds as scrumptious as it looks and really shows your chosen thread well. Your stitching always looks wonderful.

So glad to see your Jane here Siobhan. I have a local guild friend who has Jane almost finished and it is stunning. I sold mine to another guild friend who was inspired by her beauty. YGG - she is wonderful and I love your linen and silk choice. Hugs Mel

I can't wait until I get down to the 4-sided alphabet, but I have a ways to go. Love your linen and floss color combination.
