Here's a quick update on the Morning Glory. I've stitched a bit of the background and am liking it much better this time around.
I decided I should post what are slightly better images of the Gingko, It Is What It Is. I think these show the different blackwork leaves better.
When I learned of Jean Hilton's death, I was shocked and saddened. Such a loss. I've been very slowly working on Turnberry Ridge, trying to learn on my own some of her wonderful stitches. This is a wonderful pattern to learn while doing, as she intended. The instructions are great, and she gives a lot of additional stitches that aren't used in the piece itself. Here is my beginning, and please keep in mind that although it's not the first piece of canvaswork I've done, I'm still are rank amateur.
