Almost there!

Hi everyone,

No doubt, if you celebrate Christmas, you will be knee deep in preparations for the big day. I managed to get a few hours to sew yesterday so the penultimate stage of Pentecost 2 is now complete.


There is only the final border left to do. We are getting there….

Here is as much as I can see on my frame at the moment.


If you would like to see it opened out, Claire my stitching buddy, is displaying her version here. We hope to finish this piece sometime early next year so watch this space. If you’d like to stitch this design yourself, hop over to Practical Blackwork where you can download the chart for free.

Happy Christmas everyone Smile

    • Thankfully, Claire is keeping me on track. As you can see from above, she is already coming up with ideas as to how to keep me occupied for the next few months 😆

    The blackwork is looking really good. I took a quick look at Claire’s. It is going to be much larger than I thought. Have you decided what you will do with it?

  4. Amazing; you have done so much in such a short time. What an impressive work. I do wonder what you will do with this piece when the stitching is completed too. Frame? Back it with something and make a wall hanging on a rod or with clips? Certainly worthy of display in a prominent place!

  5. amazing work, nearing the end, not long now

  6. I have no words………It´s so beautiful!! Thank you for the christmas card and I wish you and your family a God Jul (Merry Christmas) and a Gott Nytt År (Happy New Year) 🙂

    • Thank you Gun. I’ve just finished and taken it off the frame. I’ll be sharing pics very soon when Claire is finished too. You are very welcome to the card Gun 🙂 Happy New Year to you and your family too 🙂
