Moving right along...


Just a quick post to show my progress on Adam & Eve. This one has been so hard to put down. I love everything about it. The colors are really standing out nicely on this fabric. I ended up switching out the color for the top geometric border and for the one below the grass area. The charted for color didn't show up well. I changed it to more of an off white instead of the light tan.
It took awhile to get in the groove to do the eyelet, Algerian eye, and satin stitches. I love the way they are used in this design for the flowers. If you have this chart in your stash, pull it out, dust it off and get to work. You'll enjoy stitching this one.

How pretty this is...your stitching looks much prettier than the picture on the chart. I think I'm going to have to add this to my list :)

Beautiful! The more I see of yours, the more I want to go ahead and get this pattern!

Wow! You've made great progress since your last pic! I love how this is coming out and the fabric you chose for it. I started it this weekend and I've had to make a couple color changes probably because of my fabric choice (Vintage Meadowrue). My color for the words above the tree barely show up, so I've got to change that. You're giving me a lot of inspiration to stitch this though. Can't wait to see your next pic!

It's really coming along! Love the horse in particular. Funny how some patterns are kind of sleepers--you don't realize how great they are until you get going on them, or someone else gets going on them.
