A Spring Finish:)

It didn't take me long to stitch up my new start I showed the other day and I think those of you who tried to guess what I showed will be surprised what it actually is! Lol!

Shepherd's Bush Monthly Musings Lamb


Stitched on 10 count cream Tula


DMC threads


JABC Buttons

I am not terribly keen on the Tula fabric but I bought this a few years ago with fabric and button pack so thought I may as well use it. The picture I showed the other day was part of the ball of wool and knitting needles:) I'm not sure how I'm going to finish it off yet but I fancy a box finish. Next time I get a chance to go to Hobbycraft I'll see if I can a rectangular box the right size.

Last night I stitched on Chris' RR and it was so strange going from 10 count fabby to 36 count! It took a bit of adjusting to but I got there! I hope to finish my bit on the RR tonight:)

I know I'm very late with this but have an of you not seen this? It is Bygone Stitches Quaker Christmas and I've been looking at this longingly since it came out last year. It is huge but oh so pretty. I've been following Carol's progress of it on her blog and there is also a SAL blog with some lovely WIPs.


I may well treat myself to this later on in the year. I've already picked out a green and gold thread and thought about fabric I could use! Lol! A girl can dream!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my ruched ribbon edge finish:) I wasn't the only one to try this as Carol finished hers off this way too!

Hugs

SB Lamb looks lovely, looking forward to seeing how you finish it. The SAL challenge is a wonderful piece. A lovely bit of ruching too.

Your SB finish is so pretty, I'll bet it would make a lovely box. Your previous finish of the heart with the ribbon edgeing was beautiful too. The ribbon edging was such a nice touch, and a perfect way to set off a heart. I've been watching Carol stitch Quaker Christmas, and it is a gorgeous piece. I didn't realize how large it was in total though, it's another huge piece. I so admire people that can stick with it to do those, I seem to do better with the smaller ones.

I love your "Lamb" finish. I actually stitched this one once, but alas, I sold it on ebay a couple of years ago. It seems you and I have a lot of the same tastes.

Karan said...

Oops, didn't guess it even though I saw the pic on JA earlier - Doh!
Love it & the cutie cuddly. :0)
Wow, the QC piece looks quite a challenge. Hope you manage to get the chart, as I'd love to watch this one develop. :0)

Laura said...

What a cute finish on the SB Monthly lamb. I think it would make an adorable box. And I am another one who admires Carol's Quaker Christmas....a green and gold thread for it sounds wonderful.

Really sweet lamb finish!

I bought Quaker Christmas back when it first came out but haven't started it yet.

Yuko said...

Sally, SB's finish is very lovely, although I can't imagine how 10ct is... lol
And you are also longingly looking at Quaker Christmas???
Me too! I'm always thinking about it, what to do, try or not? lol
It's because it's very large and will take so much time to finish, but it's just for Christmas, so I won't be able to display it whole year...
uhmmmm.... just dreaming about it, it will be nightmare if I think about it too deeply,lol

Michelle said...

What a cute SB finish! Congrats! I am also drooling over that Quaker Christmas chart - I want it sooo bad!
