I had a lovely productive Sunday on the old finishing front! I don't know why I didn't sit down sooner to do it as I'm very happy with what I achieved. The only problem is I get my sewing machine out, sew stuff up then it's the adding the trim that I can't be bothered to do! So last night I decided no stitching just adding trim so here's what I got done :)
First one is Little House Needleworks Summer Splendor which I actually stitched a while ago and it's been languishing in my finishing pile. The trim I used was in a prize package that I received from Kate earlier on in the year. I'm really pleased with this one:)
Also finally finished Little House Needleworks A Stitcher's Heart. I was undecided whether to gather the ric rac like it is on the model or sew it on straight as I was bothered I'd run out but I bit the bullet and gathered it and had more than enough:) This one is so pretty.
Scarlet has finally been reunited with her friend Belle Pepper on my wall. Yep Chessie and Me's Scarlet's Christmas Sampler is finished up and I've hung her with LHN Belle Pepper:) I'm very pleased with this one too.
Final finish up is a simple one of Shepherd's Bush The Angel's Sang. I've finished the rest of these simply but I may add something else to them before I hang them all on my tree. I think I have one more to stitch to complete the set.
I have more to do yet but am happy that I am steadily getting down them!
As I said in my last post I was joining in a SAL on Needlecraft Haven so I had my new start on Wednesday evening. This is Little House Needlworks Home of a Needleworker ( Too!). I'm stitching it using the called for Crescent Colours, 1 strand over 1 on 25 count fabric. I think this is Stormy Skies from Silkweaver. I am a wee bit disappointed with my CC Old Blue Jeans as it's dull compared to the one used in the model but I find that many times with overdyed threads.
I've made more progress on both my HAEDs. QS Holly Fairy is coming along nicely. I decided after stitching on the hair I'd do a bit more of the background.
I'm very happy with my progress on Guardian this time as I almost got 20 rows completed on page 9. If I can do this every time I pick him up I could get a page done maybe in a month.
It's SAL night with Barb tonight so hopefully I can get BBD Small Token finished:) Not sure which BBD I will pick next. Will have to see.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post. It makes me happy to know that there are so many lovely stitchers out there reading my ramblings:)
With much love.
