Blackwork in Red and Green

 This is a retired Embroiderers Guild of America, Inc. (EGA) Group Correspondence course (GCC) by Ginger Gouger Miller (c) 1997 and rewritten in 2000. 

I have the pages in a 1/2 inch three-ring binder and keep started it in June of 2021. I ran into a problem with the instructions (they referenced some diagrams that were not in the instructions). So I put it down and  have been moving it around my studio when I need to declutter for the cleaners. I finally decided to just stitch it so I could stop moving it around so much. 

When I picked it up I had two steps to complete the enter red section. I could not find the diagrams referred to, so I used the cover photo to figure it out. Once I got past that problem this is my progress as of April 6.

I have been working on this during baseball games and as of April 9 below is as far as I have gotten.

You probably can't tell it yet, but this is a tomoto pin cushion with a spool of thread and pins in the cushion. I am hoping for more progress on this now that baseball season has begun.

I am still working on Saguaro Sunrise and the Game is On! Both with minimal progress so nothing to report on those.

I thought I would close this post with a photo of Coco. This is what it looks like behind me to my left when I cook. As you see she was very interested in the ham I was dicing for soup.

Happy Stitching!
