No photo today, but several of you asked questions about my post from a few days ago
Bethany, I'm using 36-count linen and silk thread.
Nicola and Bethany, I did decide to rip out all of the grass. It was not an easy decision for several reasons---it had taken me many, many hours to stitch the grass and took more than two full skeins of silk. Also the chart called for satin stitches.
I have decided that my Ann Hair will be an adaptation instead of a true reproduction because I'll be doing the grass in stem stitches instead. I hate to vary from the chart on reproduction, but in this case I decided that is what I need to do. It is not my norm to make changes to a reproduction.
Since posting my photo a few days ago, I have stitched one of the deer. Hopefully I'll have a new photo soon...but I doubt there will be much stitching going on this weekend. This afternoon and evening and most of tomorrow, my 3-year old grandson will be spending time with me while her parents move into their new home. My husband will help them tomorrow. I think I got the better end of the deal. Don't you?
