IHSW Update

I got 3 more pages done in the last 2 weeks(so not just this past weekend). Four more and I will be at the halfway point :)
I expect my stitching speed to slow down as the new school year starts and we get muuuuuch busier.

Still Life Update August

So I'm officially 1/3 done, since I have finished 14 pages. I'm really enjoying the bright colors, they really pop against the dark background!

stitchy experiment

Hi all,
I decided to try a new experiment to see if I can do tent stitching, also known as petit-point. I've tried it before, unsuccessfully, but this time I tried evenweave. It made all the difference - much easier than the 24 count canvas I've tried in the past. So, here are my 2 experiments: The larger is on 22 count and the smaller is 25 count. I actually like them both, the 22 count is a bit easier to see, but the 25 is def better coverage. What do you all think?
The pattern is Golden Kite: Biondina.
