49 Queen Stitches.....

..... and 19 Spider Web Stitches later.....and I finished another piece on the WISP list!  This time it is Cloister Garden by Drawn Thread.  I started it in March of 2009 when Rene and I took a class at Welcome Stitchery.  Rene finished hers a long time ago, but I set mine aside, 2/3 done, with lots of Queen stitches unstitched.   (Did I mention that I hate queen stitches?)  I also realized that Spider Web stitches aren't my favorites either.

I really enjoy specialty stitches, and this chart was just full of them!  I have the others in this 'Garden Series' in my to-do mountain and will have to pull out another one to stitch soon.  I think I am going to wait with the framing on this one until I finish at least another one so that I can frame them similarly.

Thanks for visiting!
