Framed on Thursday and a WIP

It is Thursday again and that was quick!

An older framed project again this week.  I would have stitched this one in the mid-late 90's.  It is petit point or tent stitch on linen.  The scene is Gold Hill in Shaftesbury (Dorset, UK).  I eventually got to visit Shaftesbury when I lived in Dorset and it was lovely to see the street I had stitched.

And the original

The WIP refers to Baroque Garden and my never-ending quest to catch up.  I have started Part 16 and 17 has just been become available.   Here is my Part 15 and overall progress 

I have not done much in the last week - too many other things to do!

Happy stitching
