TORAH STITCH BY STITCH: Inspiring on so many levels, part 2

On July 21, 2017, I received my kit as a volunteer to cross-stitch my portion of the www.torahstitchbystitch.org project. You can read about my start here , which I wrote on August 14.

I have really enjoyed doing this. It hasn’t been easy because I had to redo a lot of the stitches to get it right. Here are the photos of my progress in the past month:

TaDa!!!!!! Today I finished stitching the last characters. Thankfully now I don’t have to ‘kill myself’ for not completing it within the 6-month time-frame that’s allotted to each of us!

And now it’s onto the illumination for the text, an optional choice in the stitching — but since I have lot’s of empty space, I’ll do one, even though it’s going to be a challenge to find the right colour combination. Stay tuned to part 3!
