His Name Is Jesus

Posted on

Done at last! I thought this would be a quick stitch but with kids, work, volunteering at school, physical therapy and exercise, it just didn’t happen. I finally finished this today. It needs to be washed and ironed, and then I am going to check out Hobby Lobby for a frame and mats, and will do the actual framing myself.

I did change the word “saviour” to “savior”, to be more American.

Now for my next project… I think I need to get my little hedgehog pincushion put together. And that deer in the woods is not getting finished just sitting in a drawer. That might need to be a summer project, though, as the counting and similar colors are horrible. I desperately want to start on John Clayton’s pyramids. And it should be an easier project, with huge blocks of one color and extremely small amounts of backstitch. Time to look through my stash again and see what other treasures I have set aside that I forgot about!

Fun times!

I love how this is turning out! What a fun and easy pattern for a change. A Summer Ball is a gorgeous chart, but requires so much counting. The deer in the woods has so many similar colors and the fabric is impossible to keep tight in my frame. But this is a nice relaxing project and I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it is finished. I think it would look good in a silver frame with two shades of purple matting.

Loving my new start

I have been working on His Name is Jesus for a few days now and loving it! This pattern is so easy to follow, quick, and fun. There is no backstitch or fractionals, and it only consists of three colors. I have decided to do shades of purple, because of a finished piece I saw online. I liked that better than any of the other versions of this that I had seen, and boy, are there a lot of them out there! It seems like everyone has stitched this. I am hoping I can get in a lot of stitching time this winter and get this done in no time.

Progress pics to come soon!
