Day 306: House Stitch

image

I did some embroidery with my sister over the last couple of days (it was an epic sleepover).

I teased her relentlessly until Ashe finished her last project. Getting a promotion at work made her put down this project for a couple of months. But….the real reason? She didn’t have another design lined up so she was going as slowly as possible.

Can you spot where she stopped?

The left chimney isn’t finished. Less than two minutes of stitching!
She finished it while we were watching Magic Mike. Or rather, as we were ignoring the dialogue until I pinched my sis and made her watch the floor show parts.

Murcia’s new project is pretty cool. She is stitching the text “I want to do with you what spring does to the cherry tree” and a cherry blossom. I didn’t get a picture of it before I left, but she is doing spring colors and Pablo Neruda’s name will be in a light tree trunk brown.
