I have been working on Our Family Tree for the past week.  This is what it looks like now.


The conjunction of where I left off with A Perfect Setting was a little unfortunate because I went from working on a tree to working on a tree. I am a little sick of green and am looking forward to stitching another color.


I have been working on A Perfect Setting again.  I have been able to finish the front of the house and quite a bit of the tree in the background.  I really like how the tree is adding depth to the picture.  I feel I have made good progress on this during this rotation and am ready to work on something else for a while.


A Belated Update

It has been a while since I have posted.  My time has been taken up by my twins graduating from high school and also preparing for our troop’s scout camp.  I have been cross stitching, just not as much as I would have liked.

I have worked more on Our Family Tree and I am happy with how it is coming along. I have reached the upper right corner of the vignette and the tree trunk is also in place.  I am going to need to go back and stitch individual stitches that are blended with blending filament.  I felt that it would be better to wait until the surrounding area is filled.

I also added another piece to my rotation.  This is Isaiah 40:31 by Donna Vermillion Giampa.  It will eventually be a picture of an eagle landing with the text of Isaiah 40:31 surrounding it. I finished the wing and  moving on to the body. This is turning out to be a really simple piece that can be completed in a relatively short time.

I am trying to decide how many active projects to keep in my rotation. Too many projects would mean that I would never finish anything.  However I have so many things that I want to work on and I am pretty impatient.  As of now I am thinking that I am going to limit myself to four or five projects.
