A,B, C, next is D!
Here is an updated picture of my CHS Alphabet piece. I've completed C and worked on the border to bring it along even with my progress. There are flowers attached to each flat spot but I'm still undecided as to the colors I want to stitch so I will hold off until I have more of the letters stitched and then decide what I want to do. This piece continues to be a pleasure to work on and I will either start D tonight or start the new Essy's Friends piece. Which ever calls the strongest will be worked on.
I'm also including a photo of my minimal progress on my HAED Storey Keeper. I'm following Nicki's method of leaving the thread in the next hole. I am working over and down at this point and trying to find a method that works best for me. It's a big piece of fabric so it's a bit awkward to work with. I'm also using the hair clips Nicki recommended and rolling the extra fabric up and clipping it with the hair clip. I need to remember to take them out when I'm finished working for the day which I forgot to do on Sunday.
