Cross Stitch, Works in Progress

Enough Bordeaux for a hangover

I’ve been stitching like a woman possessed today – and I’ve loved every single minute of it! I managed to get the current band of the Bordeaux Sampler finished as hoped, but then I exceeded even my own expectations by taking the plunge and stitching all those pesky individual over-one grapes in the previous band … which means I just have two more bands to complete and then it’s all finished (and I already have a slight head start on the border for the next band too). I truly can’t wait to see this one finished. The photos in no way do this project justice, it’s awesome in real life … I must say, though, today was my personal record for stitching of Rhodes stitches – I don’t want to see another one for a day or two 😉

  1. Glad I’m “drinking” this one 2nd hand and avoiding any hangover. 😉 It looks terrific, Anne – great job!!

  2. Bordeaux looks gorgeous and so does EMD too. Just looking at the pic in your sidebar says me your are getting close in finishing and are more than 50% now.

  3. I have to say I love Rhodes stitches, I’ll do them for you any time………… my own personal bugbear is the Queen Stitch, they practically bring me out in a cold sweat.

  4. Woohoo – it’s looking great – can’t wait to see it in person! I’m with Ally – don’t enjoy queen stitches either but rhodes are ok!

  5. My goodness! How may hours did you put in on this one, Anne? You plowed way, way ahead this week!! (Carol here, my ID will read oddly though)
