As those of you who follow my blog know, I have designated the 12 Days of Christmas as the focal piece in my rotation. That means, every other time I rotate, I work on this one.
Well, I just finished it's most recent turn with the completion of day 7! I am enjoying working on this project, but am relieved to be taking a bit of a break from it. I know backstitching serves a purpose, but after finishing off one of the "days", I've had enough BS (backstitching, lol) to last me awhile!
Here's the photo of my current progress:
As you can see, I did make a start on the border of day 8. This is due to the blended colors being used in the over 2 borders. I cut identical lengths of the two colors needed and then combine each of the six strands with the six strands of the other color and thread them into six needles. I stitch with the blends until all six needles are used up. I'm not sure this paragraph makes sense, but that's what happens! ;-)
I don't know what will be next in my rotation, 'cause I called it quits for tonight. Guess that means I'll be surprised at my next stitching session.
Happy Stitching! To those in the US, I hope you and your families have a blessed Thanksgiving!!!
