cozyblue stitch club :: summer breeze progress

i'm really digging all of the stitch variations and layers in this design.
here's my hoop so far (almost done now!) perfectly paired with my own vintage stoneware plate and my favorite snack.

i haven't used blanket stitch in years, but i've been planning to use it on this border ever since i drew this design, and i really like the way it's turning out.
here are a few more progress photos:

this vintage hexie design still needs a name. have a suggestion? reply to this email and let me know!
