I have been stitching, just working on some large pieces right now and a lot of white work which I really enjoy. Here are a couple of photos of my current WIPs.The first is a piece of cross stitch for my living room. It is actually on a grey green background but didnt photo as well. The colors are not quite that bright, they are more muted. There will be a border all the way around like shown at the start of the "C" in Cherish.
This is my hardanger table topper I am working on. I dont have a pattern just a photo of something I saw and liked. So I am modifying it slightly to accomodate the stitches I like and also I have changed the latticing from wrapped bars to woven bars. It makes the latticing flatter and slightly wider.
Here is a close up of the outline of the center, so you can see the kloster blocks, the eyelets and the woven bars.
Last but not least is a photo of my whitework class I took through the embroidery guild. I still have a few more stitches to finish before making it into a pillow. I also have it in here upside down
