Hannah's Crosses

Thank you all for your supportive comments on my tutorials.  No tutorial today, just a quick Hannah update before we head off on our camping/cycling trip tomorrow.  I plan on taking a couple of little smalls for me to work on as I really enjoy stitching outside while I hear the birds sing!  I've been working on Hannah pretty steadily and had one whole day of stitching...but then I had bad tension headaches afterwards.  Anyone else get those from a long bought of stitching? I really enjoyed stitching Hannah's crosses and the little bird motifs but now that I am close to the finishing line, I'm already thinking about my next sampler.  I have about 9 more blooms, a couple of motifs and the 1 over 1 stitching to do.  I hope to finish it by the end of summer. 



I had to post a photo of Titus because I forgot to the past couple of posts.  We are going to miss our big baby but he will be in good hands of our neighbour.  

Take care everyone!

Hugs

Anne

Hello Anne,
I am sure you are well on your way into your camping trip. Hope you will have plenty of stitching time.
Your sampler is coming along beautifully and you will be finished with it soon.
TFS the ribbon tutorial below and the end result is quite beautiful. I will have to give that one a try.

Melissa said...

Hannah is coming along great! I find I get headaches when I stitch in my wingback chair. When I stitch in my recliner I find I'm in a far better position and there's less stress on my shoulders and arms because of the way I relax and position my elbows.

Hope you are enjoying your trip!!!!
