Back on the Road

I pulled this back out and into my rotation again, too! As you can see, it's very close to being done. I added the satin stitches in the middle of the medallion and all the smyrna crosses around it. I also fixed the triangular stitches that had pulled out in the major band above it.

All that's left to do on this is finish the outer border, four stars around the medallion, smyrnas around the medallion, and the two bottom corners of this bottom band. I hope to get it done by February.

I think it is gorgeous. Is it a pattern of your own design, or from somewhere else? I think the colors are what I most like, but the design is really very nice also.

The pattern is by Jean Hilton and called Cobblefield Road. The colors were picked by Ro Pace when she taught the course as a cyberclass for the American Needlepoint Guild. I was in the class, but, like usual, took a lot longer to finish it.

I love everything about this piece - the design, colors - you name it - TFS and thanx for the inspiration!
