Progress on Mary Gail

I haven't had a lot of stitching time during the past month.  I was sick for a couple weeks and then my son came home from college so there hasn't been a lot of stitching time.  But thought that I'd show you my progress to date on Mary Gail.  She is such a beautiful stitch and I hope that I can have her finished soon!!

Mary Gail
40 ct. Vintage Autumn Gold and AVAS silks

I should mention that the original chart has the background completely filled in and I decided to not go that route.  The Vintage Autumn Gold is a beautiful fabric and looks more like the picture that follows and I think it's a good substitute for completely filling in the background:

And I'm very excited as my Needle Needs frame just showed up as I was writing this.  I can't wait to try the new frame!!

Your sampler is coming along nicely. Good work.
I really like Vintage Autumn Gold by LL. I think that was a good choice instead of stitching the background.

Beauriful, Deb! I want to stitch this one day ... I like your idea of using the V. Autumn Gold linen instead of completely stitching background ... must remember that!

Krista said...

Beautiful Deb!! Love this sweet pattern, seems very patriotic to me. Can't wait to see more of your progress.

Deb, The colors are so pretty on this sampler. I like it so much better without the background filled in.
