Winter Wonderland - Week 1 of 5

I'm really enjoying my Winter Wonderland stitching project.   There is definitely more stitching than I originally thought.  But no matter, I'm going to plug away.   I took the advice of one of my commenters and started out with one of the big blocks, the clothesline.  With only a couple of days in July so far, I'm about a third of the way through.     I am enjoying the DMC 12 wt perle cotton.  It doesn't tangle very much and I really like the color.   I decided to use the stem stitch and I like how that stitch gives the 12 wt thread a bit more thickness.

I'm sure glad that there's 5 Sundays in July to report on this project. 

Drop by next Sunday to see how I'm progressing along.

I am working on the same block and have been for quite a while. Need to get back at it.

Very nice. I am using #12 pearl cotton (794) also, to me, it is easier to work with than cotton floss. I do use the cotton floss on some of the smaller details.
