#1yearofstitches [Week 20]

I'm getting later and later in the week with these posts, aren't I! Well here is the hoop as of Sunday evening. We're 20 weeks in and the hoop has 51 different stitches on it! Some very successful, some less so!

Monday, 15th May 2017: my 50th stitch tonight was Rhodes stitch - the pink square right in the middle.

Tuesday, 16th May 2017: For my 51st stitch I added double cross stitch, which is also known as Smyrna stitch in lime green on the right hand side of the hoop.

Wednesday, 17th May 2017: I attacked the laced arrow head stitch I did way back in march tonight. I've never liked the colour combination of green and pink - it just looked brown from a distance, so I unpicked the pink and replaced it with yellow and it's lifted the whole bottom left section of the hoop.

Thursday, 18th May 2017: Four little orange cross stitches in a vertical line at the top of the hoop.

Friday, 19th May 2017: I returned to the whipped back stitch tonight for another background box. This time in green at the bottom of the hoop.

Saturday, 20th May 2017: And another background box in aqua whipped backstitch on the left hand side of the hoop. Is it the last one?

Sunday, 21st May 2017: Nope - a yellow one also on the left of the hoop. Now I'm done. I think.

I'm really loving watching your sampler grow. Your stitching is beautiful. Do you have a template drawn out or are you just putting the different stitches where ever it feels right at the time?
