What I'm Stitching

This is my first attempt at Casalguidi. I wish I had had all my information with me when I started. I would have pulled my pulled stitches tighter and opened my holes better. But I'm happy with my first attempt at the bar. Next I'm moving on to flowers with detached buttonhole. This is a class through the Shining Needle Society by Jane Ellen Balzuweit. I'm a tiny bit behind, but it's a small piece meant to be mounted on an Altoids tin so I can catch up quickly.

This is as far as I got on my Pischke while on Cape Cod. Turtle is more than halfway done. I am officially in love still!

And here's my O Canada by The Victoria Sampler. The parliament building is done. I need to go and graph my changes for the words. Originally this is the words to the Canadian anthem. But I'm substituting genealogical information from my ancestors move from Connecticut to Nova Scotia in 1761. 

I am woefully behind for another class - Color for Embroidery. But other than that and two small things that need to be finished in July, I'm free to stitch on what I want. Not taking on any new obligations!!!

Love your Pischke! Will you bring it on 9 June so I can see it up close and personal?
