All Over But the Lettering

I don't usually have something to post so soon after a previous entry, but I've actually made real headway on Summer Song by Midsummer Night Designs. I was so happy to finish the brown in the center of the flower - what a tedious job that was! But I really enjoyed stitching the flower petals - they are much brighter and more variegated than they appear in my photo - darn flash! There are a few places where I had to fudge a bit, including an over three stitch that I discovered when I was so far along I didn't have the heart to frog it, but overall it turned out pretty well. I even got used to stitching on the black fabric. Now all I have to do is the lettering, and it's done. My plan is to make a pillow. Have a happy rest of the weekend!

That black fabric really makes those colors stand out. Looks great!

It's looking great, Michele! And if you hadn't told us about the fudging, I'll bet we never would have noticed!!

Sweet progress! It's such a fun design. I'll be honest and admit that sometimes when I discover I've done an over three rather than over two, I have gone back with a top leg of the x and stitched two over twos on top of the over three. Works like a charm!

very pretty progress! It is a beautiful design. I was only looking at it a few weeks ago when I was going through my JCS mags.
