So first off this is Abi's San Man Originals Home is Where the Heart Is. It has been in her stitching box for absolutely ages and when I made my first couple of pinkeeps she decided that's how she wanted it making up! I used plain black fabric for the back and silver, white and purple pins ( purple to match the purple spider) and black ribbon. She is really pleased with it and now has it on a shelf in her bedroom.
Next this is Little House Needleworks Pine Tree Hill. I wanted to finish it as it had been in the Just Cross Stitch magazine but I think I cut my felt a bit too small or sewed too big a seam allowance on it as the piece ended up onlu just fitting on. I still have a hanger to sew on as I didn't have any ribbon or cord in red. It seems a shame to just hang it at Christmas so it might end up on display all year round!
Lastly this one was a very quick stitch I did one afternoon. Some of you may know my favourite wild bird is a robin so I stitched the Elzabeth's Designs freebie The First Robin of Spring, although I did stitch more red in it than the chart actually had! I had a coaster which Carol ( cc45 on the SMO board) sent me for one of my wishes so I decided to mount it in that. It is stitched on an ornament cut of 28 count Sassy's Fabby in Sunburst Yellow Pearl.
HAED quick stitch Dragonette is coming along quite well this week, although I didn't stitch on it at all on Friday evening then last night I was all set to stitch on it whilst watching Dr Who but I had to watch it first then start stitching! *sigh* I love David Tennant *sigh* Er yes anyway I am hoping to get one last evening on her tonight before I move onto the last piece in my rotation which is Papillon Creations Serendipity. I shall stick to the rotation I have as it has worked really well and given me a lot more incentive to work on my HAEDS with stitching something else inbetween. I won't be adding anything else this time unless I finish something and I could well finish Papillon Creations Simple Little Quaker.
Just one more week and Jess will have finished her exams, thank God! She's got five this week and I think she's really looking forward to her Chemistry one! Lol! She received her 6th From acceptance letter this last week so now she just needs to have got the grades she needs for the subjects she's taking. Abi's review day is towards the end of the month so I need to write in her planner the time I prefer to see her group tutor. Last time it was really a waste of time but they hadn't been there long then so this one might be a bit more productive!
Hope everyone has had a good weekend. I'll be back in a day or so with my progress on Dragonette, hopefully!
