Sail Away & Come Tarry







I must tell you all that I am much better with a needle in my hand than with a mouse or camera. I have had several projects completed except for the over-one stitching that is so tedious for me. I finally "sucked-it-up" as my daughter would say, and did it. I also finished the Family Sampler, but gave up on photographing it.
I am about 2/3 of the way through Finch Song--it is so much fun. I have found a couple of errors in the vine border. Take a look at the leaves (symbol E--backwards 3) that fall into a pattern around the wavy border. The first leaf on the bottom left border (next to the = leaf) needs to move to the left. Then near the center of the left side, the leaf needs to move down (from the o leaf). Also the tendril curls sometimes go left and sometimes go right without consistancy but, I still love this piece!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Keep the needles flying!
