Fair and Square

It has been quite a while since my last post and I am so sorry about that. Live is getting really busy over here and I haven't done much stitching at all. The only few things I was stitching on are a couple of Round Robins.
I stitched these three doves sitting in a tree for a friends wedding sampler. It was quite a challenge for me. The fabric is something around 11ct. and it was supposed to be stitched over 2 threads. I haven't done such a rough fabric for nearly 20 years and it took me quite a while to get used to it.
I personally stick to my high ct. fabrics.


I also got notice for Jennifer that she received my squares of the Fair & Square Autumn round. So this is what I stitched for her:

The design is by Brooke's Book and is called Autumn Pantry. I thought it is quite fitting. I am just very sorry about the quality of the pictures. I like to iron my pieces before taken pictures to have a nice and smooth surface, but just right before taking the shots my iron broke. Now how does a woman survive without an iron. I am desperate getting a new one soon.
