SAL-Fraktur Hex #13

This has been such a busy month that I have had no time to stitch so I woke up th his morning and stitched a bit before posting today just to say I got something accomplished lol!

Here is where I left off last time:

And here is what I did this morning. Lots more leaves to go!

I hope all my fellow stitchers have been more productive than I! Please visit their blogs to see what they have accomplished the last three weeks. See you in 3 😊-MM

SAL Update-Fraktur Hex #7

I am so sorry! I completely forgot to post 3 weeks ago. I do have a good report for this update though.

I have finished the border!

Here is where I was last time I updated:

And here is where I am now:

Glad that’s over lol! Now on to a different color.

Hope you are all doing well. Yes I live in New York but we are in Western NY near Lake Ontario and Erie thankfully no where near NY City. My heart breaks for our city but hopefully in the next few weeks the cases of COVID will decrease.

I can’t wait to see what everyone is up to with their projects. Please visit the other members of our Stitch-A-Long by clicking on the links below.

SAL-Fraktur Hex #6

It’s been a cold miserable week here but I have been getting a lot done inside!

The last three weeks have flown by and admittedly I haven’t worked much on Fraktur Hex. Here is where I left off last time:

And here is where I am now:

Just got around the corner on the border. That’s it. I’ll get more done next time.

I have also been working on Modern Folk Embroidery’s year long SAL which has been taking most of my time.

I have been stitching it upside down because it’s easier for me to hold lol.

That’s what I have been up to stitching wise. 🙂

SAL -Project Fraktur Hex #2

I spent so much time the last three weeks working on Fraktur Hex and I was so excited to show my progress but I realized late last night that I had made a mistake that had devastating consequences.

That may seem overly dramatic but as many of you know having to rip out two weeks worth of work is definitely devastating. And a real pain in the ass for lack of a better phrase.

Here is where I left off last time:

And here is where I got all the way up to:

I looked at the pattern wrong on the scroll work in the border which set the center part off by about 6 stitches.

My husband said just go with it and not rip it out but that would throw the entire project off because it is symmetrical. I can’t hide that big of a mistake.

I am so upset! Ugh…

I may not get a whole lot of progress done for next time but it will be correct and that’s the most important thing.

Please do go and check out the other bloggers and see what their projects look like. Hopefully they did better than I did this time! -MM

SAL – Project Fraktur Hex #1

This is my first post on my newest project, Modern Folk Embroidery’s Fraktur Hex.

The original design photo showed the entire project stitched in blue.

I knew I would get bored only stitching the same color so I have switched up the color scheme.

Just the single outside border was 1072 stitches! It’s a very big project.

I have gotten a lot done in 3 weeks. Here is where I ended last night.

I can’t wait to watch this project develop and so far I am really liking the colors. Though I am still not sure of the pink.

Please visit the other members’ blogs to see what they are working on. I am going to check them out now!

SAL-Crown of Thorns #11 -Finish

I am doing my happy dance! Thirty-three weeks working on this project and I am finished.

Here is where I left off last time:

And here is the finished piece:

I had my husband hold the fabric up in a different light and look at the difference it made below:

The better light completely transformed the face of Jesus so you can see His full jaw line.

This was a very challenging project for me because of the colors and the thread quality but in the end I hate to be cliche but it certainly was a journey for me.

Thanks all for cheering me on! See you in three weeks with a new project. -MM

SAL-Crown of Thorns #10

I do admit I am mad at myself for not finishing this project up this last three weeks. I just couldn’t quite get it done though. Too nice outside, festivals to help out at, holidays, work, Vacation Bible School….you get the picture.

Here is where I was last update:

Here is where I am now:

Impressive right?

Just a small amount on the side then I am done!

SAL #9 Crown of Thorns

I really can’t believe it’s been 3 weeks since our last update! I still haven’t finished this project. Summer has finally arrived here in NY and I have been in my garden and outside on hikes when I am not at work.

I did make some progress though so hopefully you can tell the difference. Here is where I left off last time:

and here is the point I am at now:

More of the thorns is completed and I am slowly making my way to the left side of the chart.

I hope to complete this project in the next week. I might need a snow storm to get it done though!
