I have a happy update on my Julian of Norwich “All Shall Be Well” cross-stitch project for this week’s stitchy update.
I’ve been stitching up a storm at home this past week. I hate to say it, but I kind of have Netflix to thank for that. I’ve become mildly addicted to the TV show Gotham. I don’t watch TV normally, so this show was new to me, and I’ve always had a soft spot for the Batman universe. I’ve been binge-watching season one this past week and stitching my “All Shall Be Well” project.
Here is the first progress photo:
Only one word missing here. I finally made it to the last page of the pattern. Even though the stitching occurred over many sessions, I did not take as many progress photos as I could have. Mostly, because I was so focused on the stitching, and I didn’t want to have to keep unrolling the fabric. This is what my projects look like while I am stitching:
The non-working areas of the fabric are all rolled up and held together with little clips to keep the excess fabric out of the way while I stitch. But, as you can see, I am much farther along on the piece in this photo than in the first photo.
Here it is all unrolled:
Yes! I have finished the main stitching of all of the lettering, and now I am working on the decorative corner. I still need to go back and complete the backstitching on all of the lettering, but I can see the finish line up ahead now on this project. Woo hoo!
And, this pattern is available online at Rabbit Girl Crafts on Etsy.
You’ll have this done in no time now! I always get motivated as I near the finish line!
Yes, I am very motivated to finish this now! :)
