Second Finish!

I did it!! Here's my second finish for 2007! Yesterday I finally mastered the snow at the bottom of the house, although the frog that visited on Thursday during the high winds seemed to not want to leave me and rather than keep unpicking I just kept on going! Not what I would usually do but having made a small mistake already due to the fabric ( it's opalesecent) I decided it proably wasn't to go exactly right anyway! Nevertheless I am very happy with my second finish of the year. Here's to many more! LOL!I can't quite understand why I had a problem with the opalescent as I've used it several times before but I doubt it will put me off! I like the effect of it on snowy pieces like this.

When I'd finished this I decided to make a start on a birthday present. I'm not going to say what it is as I'm not sure if the person it's for reads my blog so you'll have to wait until I know she has received it! All I will say is it's tiny!


I also made a small start on Chatelaine Summer Afternoon and it's looking lovely already, for all I haven't done much. After the opalescent the plain antique white evenweave was lovely! LOL! I think I might carry on with it tonight then tomorrow it's back to HAED; this time Quick Stitch Dragonette!

Hi Sally, your Forest Snowflake looks fantastic and you didnt make an error you personalized it lol.

Think that one is going to end up in my stash box before the end of the year.

Look forward to seeing progress on your Chatelaine design.

Hi Sally, I absolutely love Forest Snowfall and your finish is so Lovely! I love the fabric you chose and I'm sorry it was a pain. Opalescent fabrics are a pain for my eyes as well.. but they are so lovely. I've got this one in my stash... I haven't picked out my fabby yet, but I'm sure thinking about something similar to yours! I'm itching to start it... :-)

A lovely finish Sally - I know what you mean about the fabric though, I always struggle stitching on opalescents.
