Papillon Creations "Around the World in 80 Stitches" SAL

This lovely designer has just started this new stitch-a-long. She will release one section each month for 24 months. I just completed the first month. Look!

The stitching is about 7 1/2 inches across on 32 count fabric stitched over 2 threads. She will be using a new country each month with specialty stitches connected to that country. This month's stitches were scotch stitch, norwich stitch, berwick stitch, and lindisfame stitch. This took me a while to complete because I kept making mistakes. All the backstitching was done as least twice, and I kept having issues with the green colors I'd chosen, but I really had fun with it and am looking forward to stitching up the rest.
