This chart is by Needlework Press and I love their charts but . . I love almost all charts!
I haven’t had a lot of time to stitch – canning, working in the yard and garden . . not enough hours in my day but don’t we all have that problem.
Here’s the cover photo:
Here’s where I stopped last night:
By the end of the day June 7, which will be one week since I started working on this, I hope to have the alphabet for those first two rows done. That’s A – F on the top row and M – R on the second row. That’s 12 letters. I can do that . . maybe. I did all 10 letters that are stitched yesterday.
My goal . . not written in stone but I’m hopeful . . as as follows:
Week 2 – June 8 – 14: Stitch the third row – the row with W – Z. Stitch the trees on each side of the house.
Week 3 – June 15 – 21: Stitch the house and the flower basket.
Week 4: June 22 – 28: Stitch the words and Ellen’s name/date.
When I finish the work I’m hoping to get finished, if there’s any time left, I will work on the borders. Then, I’ll have June 28 – 30 to work on the borders.
So, there’s a slim chance I could get this finished by the end of June.
Of course, that means, Cross Stitch Camp probably isn’t going to happen for me. I’m telling you . . I think I’m seriously about to become a monogamous stitcher.
I do have the Red Bird Sampler started and am working on it upstairs while watching the canner but otherwise, it’s all Ellen Carr this month.
