A Tiny Finish and An Almost Finished!

Now that it is Heather's birthday - Happy Birthday Heather!- I can now show my tiny finish from the other day. This is a freebie from the Victoria Sampler website called Teeny Tiny Friendship Bag.

Friendship Teeny Tiny Bag

I stitched this on 28 count antique white fabric using Vicki Clayton silks in Lavender and Rose, Blackberry and Holly Leaves, Kreinik #4 braid in gold and Mill Hill beads. I filled it with dried lavender from my garden:) I hope you like it Heather.

Now I have been threatened with nagging from
Paula, threatened with Mr Stick by Julie and threatened with constant nagging by Karen and all that is motivation enough to get on with Chatelaine Summer Afternoon! Now when I was chatting to Karen on MSN yesterday she threatened to nag me all the more if I didn't post a WIP pic! LOL! So especially for Karen this is where I'm at as of last night at about 11pm!

Summer Afternoon last part

I have only scanned the bit I am stitching on as I can't get the whole piece in the scanner. I must admit that I have been much more motivated with this the past couple of evenings and now I just have two bees to stitch and the beads to stitch on. Julie if I don't get this finished tonight is it OK if I join the girls on Tuesday evening even though it isn't officially a UFO? I may even sit down this afternoon and add the beads if I can get on the table for homework that the girls are doing! LOL!

Yesterday afternoon I made a small start on the LHN/ CCN Bee Pinkeep from the January issue of The Gift of Stitching. This is going to be for my friend's 40th birthday in October. I had a change of plan as I was originally going to stitch Just Nan Thanks a Bunch! I will probably finish it into some sort of an ornament with her name and mine on the back. I know she doesn't read my blog so I can chat about it on here:) I will have to get on with it as her birthday is the 5th!

That's all from me for today:) I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Thank you for dropping by blog {{{{hugs}}}}

Very cute small fininsh. For big projects, you need lot of motivation and friends to get you going.

Heather said...

I do love it Sally, thank you very much. I'd have replied earlier, but we had a power surge here and we lost power for half an hour.

Keep going on your Chatelaine or you'll have me nagging you too ;)

Julie said...
