Isle of Hope Continues


I had planned to do the outside edge while at the hospital as it is generally just a satin stitch over three threads.  However - - I am reading the instructions and there is a centering issue.  So to make sure I am doing it correctly, I had to go back and do the outside edge.  The checker board stitch was fun and it really is pretty.  The Kissing Post is represented and the big clock.  
The don't show up too well.  The last row of stitches are tulips and so pretty done with satin type stitches.  I am closing in on the edge so I can keep moving forward.
