Halfway

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Valentines day!!  I did, a nice quiet romantic evening at home-- that included steak and lobster!!    Yum :)  Even a couple of romantic movies to boot.  I even stitched some last night, well, I really got a lot of stitching done last night-- I know, very romantic right?  LOL.
I was able to stitch 4 rows of the letters last night and I am happily done with the over one.  I did stitch them in full cross-- super easy especially on 32ct burlap linen :)  My Friend suggested I spice things up a bit and use a hand-dyed silk for the letters and I am thrilled with the turn out.  It is just enough.  Thank you!!!
So I have made the halfway hump and I look forward to finishing the row out in the next day or so.  I cant believe I complained so much!!!  LOL. 
Stay tuned for more pics to come!!

  1. Wow it is pretty, Shannon, as is all of your work! I love it (a few posts back) that you pulled out that City Stitcher pattern..I love that one, have forever.

    You do some pretty incredible work, I have always loved visiting your blog to see all of the special stitching you are up to! My blogging has been a bit off for months, and I hope you pardon my absence. Going to try to do better!
