Almost a Finish


The eyelets are all stitched (thankfully) and the whitework section in 3026 for the diamonds, 3024 for the zigzag and 2235 for the foursided stitch.



That completes the official Rachel other than her name which I am not stitching. I am now adding another section of my own.

We have had dreadful weather today and it was a battle to even walk outside against the force of the wind. Our gutterings could not cope with the water coming off the rooves. Apparently there is worse to come. I cannot wait for Spring.

Wow! It is beautiful. I will have you know that I am being tempted to buy a sampler. I have tons of stash and no need for more, but these are so lovely!

Oh my, Nicola ... GORGEOUS!! I love the colors of the whitework ... very striking! You have my curiosity peaked for your personalization!
Please be safe, my friend. I feel like we will all be worn out by this dreadful winter weather by the time Spring comes :/

Wow! Rachel is beautiful. I love the vibrant colors. Can't wait to see what you have chosen for the next section.
I agree, spring can't come fast enough. I feel like we have been in a deep freeze. Temperatures most of the week averaging -38 with the wind.

Oh my gosh, she is just gorgeous! I just love her! Hope the weather isn't as bad as they are saying. I know what you are saying. I'm so ready for spring -- it's been a harsh winter so far with more to come.

Amazing Nicola and just so strikingly beautiful. I love that last section particularly. Can't wait to see your personalization -- I'm sure it will be just gorgeous. Be safe in this weather. I don't remember a winter this nasty in a long, long time.
