All the Troubles

I have made relatively little progress this week on my stitching. I put in about 1500 more stitches on Old Worlde Map. It is coming along nicely. I am almost done with the stuff inside the two circles. Only a placard, mountains, and backstitching remains. Of course this leaves all the stuff outside of circles. Sometimes I feel that I am slowest stitcher in the world. Here is a link to a picture of it. http://www.crossstitchuk.com/P/Cross-Stitch-Janlynn-Platinum-Collection-Olde-World-Map(4263).htm
I have posted a picture of a cross stitch that my husband put together from different parts of the Subversive Cross Stitch designs. The phrase all the troubles comes from an inside joke amongst our friends. This was another birthday gift for Persian Pen Name. She always seems like she is making knitted things or other crafty items to give away to family and friends but never seems to get crafty stuff in return. So Husband and I decided to stitch her birthday gifts this year.

All the Troubles is cute, Cherylann. And you are not the world's slowest stitcher. I have that honor. LOL

Cherylann, I think you are amongst friends in the turtle stitching department. This week has been one of those for me too, but you know what, as long as we get those quiet moments......it's still a great day/week. Sometimes we just have to let life intrude for a little bit and then kick it out again! LOL

Loved your Subversive Stitching pieces....really cute and lots of fun.
