Stitching update

I did one more day's stitching on Garnet while on holiday, but only got the photo off the camera today. Since tomorrow is Wednesday and I'll be working on Garnet again, I thought I should post the current picture first.

Here's Garnet after 4 days of stitching (photo taken 26 Dec, 2007):

After taking a break between Christmas and New Year (aka needing a rest because I stitched too much), I got back to stitching yesterday with Alpine Seasons. I've now finished the section of borders down the middle of the sides.

I estimate I've now done about 2/3 of the outer borders (that's parts 11 and 12) and I hope to get the rest - and therefore the design - finished before too much more time goes past. As always, how it works out will depend on my health and how many other things I have to do.

Kerry, wow! I had no idea that you started Garnet. It is just lovely and you have so many stitches in already. I am also smitten with Alpine Gardens; I just bought it and had all my silks delivered early Dec. (VC conversion) I can see that i have something lovely to look forward to!
Happy new Year and look forward to doing our CC sal together with JM and Paula.

Alpine is looking fab! I love the fabric you're using!

I had no idea that Alpine Seasons was so beautiful... A definite must for dh. I'm so glad you've posted pics of your work on this -- thank you!
