SAL -Fraktur Hex #12

I finally finished the third corner of Fraktur Hex but I was tired of doing the corners so I started stitching in between the corners.

Here is where I left off last time:

And here is where I am now:

Still not a lot of progress done but it kept my attention this time lol.

Please visit the other stitchers in our group to see their progress on their projects. See you in 3 weeks! -MM

And here is where I am now:

Not a lot done but it will have to do.

SAL-Fraktur Hex #10

Good morning! I am excited to say that I got a lot accomplished in three weeks even with all of the gardening I have been doing 🙂

Here is where I left off three weeks ago:

And here is where I am now:


There are 37 leaves in each corner to stitch so although the scrollwork goes fast it’s those darn leaves that take me forever.

I hope to have all four corners done by next update and then I can start stitching the center design. Fingers crossed.

Hope you are all doing well!

See you at the end of June! -MM

SAL – Fraktur Hex #9

Good morning and Happy Mother’s Day! Today we actually have sunshine which I am so grateful for after yesterday’s unruly snow, sleet and wind.

I have gotten quite a bit stitched on Modern Folk Embroidery’s Fraktur Hex. Here is where I left off last update:

And here I am now:

Two whole corners are done and I am well on my way into the third and even a little bit into the fourth.

We have a wonderful group of stitchers here in this SAL and I would love it if you visited them to see what they are working on. Their links are below. Plus we welcome back Helen this time! See you in three weeks -MM

SAL-Fraktur Hex #8

So sorry for the late post. I worked this morning at the store in the bakery and I have still not mastered the skill of scheduling a post.

I have almost completed another corner of Fraktur Hex by Modern Folk Embroidery on a 32 ct linen. Here is where I ended three weeks ago:

And here is where I ended last night.

I have also been working on Modern Folk Embroidery’s year long SAL which I am doing on a charcoal 20 ct Aida. This one is killing me right now with the constant mis-stitching and frogging and the dark fabric is hard to see to stitch.

I would like to welcome Sherrie to the group. Can’t wait to see what you are working on Sherrie!

Please head on over to the other blogger’s blogs in our group. There are 30 of us now and we hail from all over the world.

See you in three weeks! – 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.

See you in three weeks! -MM

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- Fraktur Hex #5

Good morning! It is a raining snowy mess here in Western NY but we are all warm inside dreaming of our Spring gardens.

I didn’t get a ton of work done on my Fraktur Hex. I have many large projects going including the SAL for Modern Folk Embroidery and one I created myself on my brand new computer program Winstitch.

Here is where I left off last update on Fraktur Hex:

And here is where I am now:

The border is going to be my nemesis.

Just for fun this is also what I am working on from Modern Folk Embroidery:

It’s going to be another huge project. The black 20ct aida is a killer though!

And here is the chart I have developed on my Winstitch program:

I know it’s ridiculously huge but this china pattern, Limoges Lyric was one of the first I ever sold in my Etsy Shop and can you imagine how gorgeous it will be when finished?

That’s it for me! Please visit the other stitchers in this group. Their links are at the bottom of this post. Can’t wait to see what everyone is up to! -MM

SAL – Fraktur Hex #4

Happy New Year! I am working on two large projects simultaneously which is good because I might go blind doing one of them because it’s on a dark charcoal 20 ct fabric. It’s really hard!

Fraktur Hex from Modern Folk Embroidery is the SAL project I am working on for this group.

Here is where I left off last time:

And here is where I am now:

One entire corner is complete. And no ripping out this time!

We have added a new member to the group! Welcome AJ! Can’t wait to see what you are up too. 🙂

Please go check out the other bloggers to see what they are working on. Links are below.

Here’s to another great year!

SAL – Fraktur Hex #3

Good Morning!

It’s been three weeks since our last update and 2 of those weeks were pretty miserable as I slowly ripped out all of the stitching that was off. But I did have some forward progress.

Here is where I ended yesterday.

No sense in showing the before!

I won’t even mention that I had to rip out another line in the border. Grrr…

I should be back on track (hopefully).

Please do some blog hopping and visit the other wonderful bloggers in this group.

Thank you Avis for your organization of this group. We appreciate you so much!

Hope you all have a Happy Christmas and a wonderful start to your new year.

See you in 3 weeks! -MM
