Pink Carnations Update


This is my progress after 10½ hours. I switched the green and pink back stitching around the border of the specialty stitches. Makes it uniquely my own. I'm thinking about changing the border around the entire piece, too.

Your pin carnations is really looking great!
I can't believe how clean you got the little dino piece with denture tablets. Will have to remember that trick.
Love the pansy scissor keep!

Very nice, Meari! Your eyelet stitches are so even. Diagonal eyelet stitches on gingham, now *thats* a challenge!

I love this little design. I have started stitching it too but don't have as much done as you! Your dragon pinkeep is adorable!

This is so pretty. I have admired this chart for awhile and now that I see it being stitched up,I must put it on my wish list LOL. Thanks, I think? ;) Oh, I think I must look into getting a steam mop too, it looks like something that would work perfect for my floors.
