Since July of last year, I've been working on this Teresa Wentzler design published in an old Just CrossStitch Magazine. It is a small piece, but I've put it down to work on other items over the past several months. Then, when I was really rolling along getting it done, I broke my finger in a car accident at the beginning of April and couldn't stitch for about 6 weeks.
Happily, I can stitch again, so here are a few pics of "Delft Flowers". I am nearly done. I just need to backstitch the inside of the basket-weave ring after a few single stitches that I missed on my way around!
To give you more of an idea of the small scale of the work, this was originally designed to decorate a mason jar top! I don't like the idea of it getting all dusty, though after this has been a bit of work, so I plan to frame it in a round frame.
