Five More

I stitched five more blocks and finished another diagonal. The zig-zag edge from the lower half of the piece has now disappeared.  Every diagonal will now be just a little shorter than the last.  I am now working up towards the final corner. 

 

Two More Blocks

I suspect that stitching is going to be slower this week because of Thanksgiving.  For example, tonight I was only able to stitch two blocks because.  I had to make a cheesecake for pie night tomorrow night. I also went to stake choir practice which took some of my stitching time away as well.  At any rate, this is what my progress looks like now:

 

A Page Finish

I have stitched four more blocks. I also have finished another page.  Since I am working diagonally I have already finished more than half of the penultimate page.  The last page is just three and a half columns, which means that I am getting close to the end here.

 

A Perfect Setting Update

It has been a while since I have posted, mainly because I have been posting daily updates on Instagram.  However, I have decided to post daily updates here instead.

I have been working exclusively on A Perfect Setting for the last month or so.  I have made great progress and am closing to finishing all of the cross stitching on this piece.  Last night I stitched five more blocks and finished another diagonal.  I really like how the bottom branch looks as it travels in front of the tree by the side of the house.  It adds more depth to the picture.  It is also nice to see that tree completed instead of having its top chopped off.  All that is left to do is to finish the final branches and sky.
