Half Done

It is official! Terre de France is half done! I finished Part 12 just a few minutes ago. I am stitching this project on 32 count Spun Silver Permin linen (2 over 2) with plain old 310 DMC floss. I've used 7 full skeins of floss, plus a few strands from the 8th skein. I can't decide if I prefer the architectural elements in this project or the motifs from nature. This is an amazing design.

The first picture is the project with a white blanket behind it. The second is a close up of the first half. The third is a blurry close-up of Part 12.











































Just think - this time next year I'll have all 24 parts of this project finished! WOW!

Back to the stitching nest. I'm going to try to finish another project or two today.
