Indy 2006 Town Square Series Progress

Wednesday:  My husband attended the Civil War Round Table meeting Wednesday evening.  So I parked myself in my stitching corner, set the Roku box to play episodes from Law & Order SVU and stitched for a solid two hours, finishing the Bakery from this series.  This is another piece that I stitched from stash, substituting over dyed fibers in stash for similar over dyed flosses listed on the chart.

Thursday:  I have started The Shoe Shrine,  Again, I was able to stitch from stash, having four of the five required over dyes in stash and needing to substitute only  GAST Hyacinth for WDW Plum.  It is so satisfying to be able to kit up a chart immediately, no waiting for supplies to arrive in the mail.  One other change I made.  The chart called for stitching the shoes in "back stitch" which made no sense to me.  So first I tried satin stitch which certainly didn't work so frogged that and stitched them over one, instead. 

Friday:  Finished stitching The Shoe Shrine.

Saturday and Sunday:   I kitted up and began work on the Town Square Series' The Flower Shop. Again, I was able to kit this up from stash with only one substitution: a medium brown Limited Edition GAST for GAST Sable. I'll show a photo when I have a bit more than the roof line stitched.  This piece will catch me up with my annual goal of stitching one building from this series each month

I love this series.

Your over 1 shoes look great, the perfect solution.
