More Progress on LHN's Heart of America

Here's the latest progress scan of my Heart of America piece. I'm really enjoying it! I only have 1 square on the far right to stitch and the long banner at the bottom that runs the width of the project.



The "Old Glory" square has been my favorite square to stitch so far. Here's a close-up of it.


I will be relegating HOA to my Saturday Night Stitch project, so it'll be slow going to a finish, but a finish will come! I will now move on to this project that I started MANY years ago, like 8 or so!! It's been languishing in my stash closet. I don't think I've touched it in about 2 years. This is Paula Vaughan's "Summer Welcome". I've got roughly 175 hours stitching in this project.


Here's the back of the project at 155 hours.

Great progress on HOA, Stephanie! I think the little flower just sets off the Old Glory block; it's very pretty.

The back of your Paula Vaughn is absolutely incredible. You are the woman!!!

Your LHN piece is gorgeous! I love the Old Glory square, too! The more I see it, the more I want to stitch it!

Can't wait to see your progress on the PV! Go Stephanie!

Love the Paula Vaughn. Don't like the incredible amounts of backstitching but sure like the finished product!

Your HOA is beautiful too!
