Weekend Stitching

My weekend went pretty well on stitching. I have my RR to get prepped and ready to go and a mailart piece I am entering in a competition (it is my first one, I always go the most difficult routes, LOL)..

My RR is based on Ancient Egypt tomb walls or papyrus. It is a country RR, In which each person tries to do a RR based on a country or region. I took a piece from a cross stitch book on Ancient Egypt and put two parts of a larger chart together. Here is what it will look like..

This is what I have gotten done so far. I am going to stitch the center and then have the others work on the figures.....It is stitched on 28ct antique white lugana
Here is my mailart piece started. I am using a Blackbird design for the pieced stitched on it. I am stitching on 40ct Linen with Weeks Dye Works..

I LOVE your RR. I love all things Egyptian, so I find it fascinating the designs you've chosen. Beautiful!
