Some Progress

...is better than no progress. This past week at work has been extraordinarily busy, so I have not gotten as far on this piece as I would have liked. However, I do have the weekend off this weekend and I should be able to make a lot more progress on it. I am really liking how the green is making the white show up quite nicely. I think this will be a very nice piece when it is completed. 

I have noticed that it is very difficult to take pictures where the fabric shows its' true colors. I will have to experiment with different times of day and lighting. 

At any rate, here is my usual pre-weekend update:


Design:
 Strawberries and Cream 



Designer: Casey Buonaugurio (retired)

Fabric Used: 28 count Cashel linen in Water Lily

Fibers Used:  DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in B5200, 225, 321, 351, 743, 815, 937, 986, 988 and 3706. 

Stitcher's Notes: Began Monday, April 11, 2016. Design featured in the February 2006 issue of The Cross Stitcher, a now defunct US magazine. Design featured on page 36. Substituted called for fabric for 28  count Cashel linen in Water Lily
