Someone asked, so even though these aren’t finished yet, here is D through H.
D, E, and G are finished except for the borders. The letter F itself is finished, there is just topstitching to do. Most of the vacant area to the right of the F will be filled with this stuff. Recall that this is 22-count fabric so the little leaves are REALLY tiny. I had to figure out a good order to do these little figures so that the stitches support each other instead of pulling under the threads in the fabric. Obviously there’s a lot to do on the H, but I feel very happy with my progress. I started this in late June so this is a little over 4 months and it’s a LOT of stitches.
Coming up are some letters that will have some red topstitching over white crosses. I haven’t figured out yet what the closest shade of red is. J has just a little but P is almost solid white with a feather topstitched in red. I’m looking forward to that … not because I like topstitching, anything but, but it will be different.
