More than half the visitors to this blog don't read or speak English as their first language. In order to make things easier, I've installed a translator in the side bar. Such devices are far from perfect, but I hope that the translator will still be helpful.

I spent a fair amount of time over the weekend working on Mary Wigham as part of Jacqueline's Needleprint SAL. It is a fun stitch. Here is my progress as of this morning. (As you can see, I'm not much of a photographer. I'll try to get Tom to take a better photo soon.)

Thanks everyone.

Vaida, I am using a combination of DMC, Sampler Threads, Weeks Dye Workes, Crescent Colours, and Olde Willow Stitchery threads. I have never before used overdyed threads for a reproduction.

I tried to keep the colors as close to what was charted. The only color I'm not wild about is the lighter green which is on part 1. I think that it may have too much color variation for my taste.
