Setting the Scene

I finally got caught up with parts 10-13 of The Great Escape. It's all background all the way. I had no idea that I'd fallen so far behind.


The Great Escape
28ct white Jubilee, DMC 317, 318, 413, 414, 415

The only new stitch was the Star Flower stitch, which is that giant square stitch on the left. It's a modified Jessica stitch and was easy to stitch.

Some of the straight stitches (the grasses) are ridiculously long. I stitch this in-hand and it was such a pain trying to make sure they had a decent tension!

I think it is looking great, Blu. You make me wish I was stitching this (except for my aversion to owls!).
