Maybe for the first time ever, I stitched over 500 stitches today.
It was a lot of work and if I hadn’t really wanted to do it, I would probably have stopped at about 400 but I kept stitching and got it . . almost 10% done too. I don’t think I’ll make a habit of stitching 500 stitches per day.
I actually got five hearts done but had taken a picture after 2-1/2 because I knew the phone battery was about to die.
For those who asked about the missing “J” and now the “U”, from what I’ve heard in youtube videos and read online, those two letters were so similar to the “I” and “V”, and were not used that often, so they were sometimes left off the samplers. That makes no sense to me . . maybe because my name has both those letters but if you’re going to stitch 24 letters, why not stitch 26? But . . I wasn’t around in the 1800’s so what do I know?
