I have finished the Charleston round! This piece actually took a lot longer than I anticipated. I decided to take a week off of needlepoint in order to catch up on some reading, and then dive back into Charleston with a new outlook. I finished Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts and started The Duchess by Amanda Foreman. If you can't tell, I am on a 18th century reading binge! I would highly recommend both books. Needlepoint wise, this took a long time because I kept changing the threads. The houses are done with Planet Earth 6 strand silk and Soy Luster. The sky is Watercolours, and the wheels of the carriage are the new DMC memory thread. I love how this turned out in the end, but all of the little pieces on this canvas made it take FOREVER. Needless to say, I was definitely ready to be done with this one.
