The Random Motif Sampler
Soie d'Alger on 35ct linen, as kitted
More specialty stitches ahead, but the stitch manuals are already out for Rachel Jarratt, so I think I will have to alternate them. I can't remember why I thought I needed to work this from the center out. It probably had to do with it not having a defined border and maybe because this particular motif is closest to the center - and only uses plain cross-stitch.
The sun finally came out today (mid-Michigan is horribly gray in the wintertime). I can't bear to spend my afternoon straightening the sewing room anymore, which is down in the basement - I'm going to sit in the lovely sunshine and stitch.
