It has been some time since I have posted about poor Dorothy. I have been traveling between TX and sunny Southern California for all of May and June for a major work project. Dorothy is a terrible traveler. Such a big girl to fit in those cramped airline seats that she had to stay home. Even is she came along she never made it out of my bag because after working 14 hour days I had little desire to stitch. But, I have been making steady progress this month. Here is a photo of where I was at last week. Since then I have stitched the floral band below the Bargello to move on to something less tedious in my opinion.
Here is a photo of the section where I am at now. I find these three sections to be very intense stitching with little progress each day. I committed to trying to get a few words done during the day each weekend in the bright sunlight and only have a few more to do. It will be lovely when done.
Any suggestions for working the Bargello section? I have never done this type of work before and wonder if I am doing it right? Would it be better to stitch each color completely across the row before starting the next?
Have a great week everyone! I will be in the air conditioning stitching!
