My First Algerian Eye

I just learned my first specialty stitch: Algerian-Eye Stitch Over Four. I'll admit it -- I was afraid! But it was cool and so fun to do. I have a pattern waiting for me filled with specialty stitches and now I feel brave enough to do it.

Here is my Algerian Eye:

And my overall progress occurring at lightening speed (the quilt I shot it on is showing through the linen.  I'm going to have to figure out another way to do it):

I thank God for stitching. It's really helping me navigate through this difficult time.
