Stitching & Rotations

Two days prior to my Retreat and for two days after I was working on my rotation on The Accolade.  I find to avoid too much eye strain when I work on it because its all over one... and a lot of it!  I usually work on The Accolade at home with my magnifier lamp.  I don't really need magnification but I find my eyes really bother me after a good long stitching session on this piece.



Here is my progress on The Accolade during this last rotation.  Some more people are starting to make an appearance at the knighting!  My next rotation is Smalls, and oh boy I have a CUTE surprise for you!


While I was at retreat I pulled out Kathy's Christmas ABC Sampler since its pretty easy to work on in mixed company.  I also secretly enjoy working on this piece, despite the fact that its really not "my style".  I managed to finish yet another letter, this time "E" is for Evergreen.

I love your progress on The Accolade! Much too detailed for my eyes, but I do like these larger pieces...

Lovely work on the sampler, too!

The Accolade is looking stunning. I love seeing your progress on this. Evergreen is very pretty too. The colours are so vibrant. xx

They are both great Dani. It helps to see more and more develop on the large pieces. It motivates.

Both are gorgeous, Dani! Sometimes I enjoy working on pieces outside of my style, too. =)

The Accolade is looking beautiful! All of the bright colours in the ABC Sampler would make it really fun to stitch and I understand why you would be enjoying it.

Your Accolade is lovely. I would never even try all that over one. I love the look of Evergreen of course it means more as I live in the Evergreen State!

Accolade looks gorgeous as does your Alphabet. Couldn't imagine stitching over 1.

Carol said...

Gosh, Dani, I didn't realize the Accolade was stitched over one--that makes it even more impressive!! And your E block is very cute--nice to have that feeling of accomplishment after each letter is finished, isn't it?

Anne said...

I'm like you when I stitch on my HAED, it's hard to stitch after awhile! Well, it is looking amazing! Love your little E block too! Cute!

Annette said...
