A Promise Kept - MW Update

Well, I finished another motif on MW this evening while waiting for the outcome of Robert's Quarter Final game (which DH was texting me the highlights) and watching Ghost.  I thought I would make good on my promise and post an update of MW...so without further ado:


I thought I would put the thread I used for the last motif I stitched in the photo to show you that the brown and the greenish color is from one strand called School Yard. While I stitched the motif, I worked hard to make sure that not only did the design come out looking symmetrical but also the colors. Sometimes it meant that I would stitch with the brown near the needle...allowing me to stitch with the green color. When I came to an area that I wanted to be brown, I secured my end and cut it. Then I moved the needed so that the green color would be near the needle and I would stitch in brown (did that all make sense?). It is different, but I like the way it looks.

Well...off to bed for I have another early alarm (4am...gotta get in my exercise before I take Matthew to the rink for his hockey clinic)...Goodnight!

BTW...Robert's team won their game in an overtime shootout. The score was 5 to 4. So, they move to the Semi-Finals tomorrow morning at 10:30...Go Jr. Sharks! ****Edited at 3:30pm on 12/30...Unfortunately, Robert's team lost 3-1 in the semi-finals****

I love it and that fabric your stitching it on :)
I envy you and your workout, I've been so ill lately that I can't get mine in because I can't get a full breath. Have a Merry New Year!

I love the school yard color! Great job at making it symetrical - I never would have thought of doing that!

It looks great! I really need to get back to my Quakers. They're so fun to stitch. :)

Congrats to your son!
