An update on Ruthy




I have just put the last stem stitches into Ruthy, there were an awful lot of them. Now onto the border and dediction.

I changed the strawberries below the base of the tree from cross to satin stitch. I think that I am going to unpick the one I have cross stitched in the border when I started Ruthy and work them all in satin stitch.

I figured this wouldn't take you long to complete. Another couple of days and we'll all be seeing another Nicola Finish. Amazing. Beautiful stitching as always.
