Smoyg

I've made a lot of progress on my Smoyg embroidery this year, and the end is now in sight.  


The top half:



The bottom half:


There's just two and a half blocks to finish now.  The big black ones (which get a bit boring), and the diamond one just below half way - which shouldn't take long at all.  

I love the multicoloured blocks, but the black and white blocks look very effective too.  I love it all - especially when viewed from a distance.  



I've really enjoyed working on this sampler, and I'll be sad when it's finished.  But I have Yvette Stanton's book and I could make something else with all the left over threads.  




So that's what I've been up to this week.  

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  What have you been up to this week? Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Smøyg, Norwegian stitches, so fun. Some of those stitches used in traditional costumes in Norway. I've tried some of those stitches.

Over the years of following your blog and seeing your makes, I recognize what a dedicated maker you are. Head-down. Devoted. Relentless about finishing projects that others would deem "too much!" I admire you for that because I know you're also a wife and mom, and have other things going on in your life. Maybe I'm just trying to say that you excel at efficiency! This is a gorgeous piece that only makes me ask myself, "How many hours did she put into THAT?!" :-) In a nice way, of course. :-) You do amazing work.
