Matt (my son) bought me this chart as soon as it came out. Being from Chicago he thought it would look great in our home and I finally got around to starting it!
Pretty Little Chicago
Designer - Satsuma Street
First Stitch 02/11/19
Progress as of 02/17/19
So far I have finished stitching The Sears Tower (aka The Willis Tower). I grew up calling the Sears Tower by that name and when the Willis Group bought the building and changed the name I just couldn't bring myself to start calling it by the new name. When it was built is was the tallest building in the world and held that title for 25 years! Once the World Trade Center was rebuilt that became the tallest building.
I also finished (minus the backstitching) Chicago's Picasso. Picasso gifted this sculpture to Chicago in 1967 and surprisingly only took three months to complete it. This is located outside of the Richard J. Daley Center where the Cook County Circuit Courts are located. Daley was Chicago's longest serving Mayor and held office for over 20 years.
I hope you enjoyed your little lesson about my hometown Chicago. I will have much more to add as this piece grows.
Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
