The Lord's Supper

So this story starts back in 1997. I had the pattern, got the supplies and started, but I didn't connect with the project. The pattern said to use 3 strands and that made the crosses look lumpy. Some of the colours were a combination of 2 strands of one colour and one of the other. I should have trusted my judgement and just gone with two. I did all the clothing of the disciples and all their hair, but I decided to start over.

So this past January I started over completely. I didn't really care for the colour of the previous fabric, so this time I went with plain white. My goal was to finish it in a year and a half- at least one disciple a month. I started with gusto and then I burned out. I am starting again because TV shows are no longer on re-runs and I can't quilt and watch TV at the same time. I can cross-stitch and watch TV at the same time, even with a blanket on me. So I will update every 2 weeks or so to show progress. So far I have done all the clothing of the disclipes on Jesus' right. That is Bartholomew, James, Andrew, Judas, Peter and John. I've cut it a bit close with the border on the edges, but it should still frame well. So here's hoping I get a lot done this winter.
