Birch Point: A Charles Wysocki WIP


The start of this Dimensions Gold Collection kit, entitled Birch Point, predates the beginning of this blog. So, you can imagine how far down in my WIP pile I had to go to discover it. But, I have to say, when I pulled it out, I knew I had to add it to my 10-hour rotation. 



The last 10 hours were some of the longest stitching time I have spent. Mostly, I worked on the the treeline to the left of the house, then completed the lefthand window, and have worked my way up to the roof. This is 18 ct. beige Aida we’re talking here, not my favorite fabric these days.


But I know it will be lovely when it is finished.

  8. My oldest WIP is a Dimensions Gold piece too. It pretty much put me off stitching at all for awhile because it felt like I was never making any progress. I've thought lately it was time to pull it out again though. Glad to hear your's is coming along! It looks beautiful.
