I was very good yesterday afternoon and got everything prepared to finish up LHN Winter Wonderland and by 5pm I had it all done and dusted:) So I am very proud to present my very first large pinkeep ( thank you BeckySC for the inspiration) I have had to tweak the photo a little to show up the fabric colour better.
Little House Needleworks Winterland
Polstitches Dragon Shades 28 count Nature's Grace
DMC, GAST, Crescent Colours
Started 13th March 2008
Finished 1st May 2008
Don't forget that I'm holding a draw for the chart in my previous post so please comment on that post if you'd like to be in with a chance of winning it:)
I finally finished up Shepherd's Bush Lamb into a box top. I'm not that happy with it but it is my first attempt. I painted the bottom of the box but I want to cover it with fabric when I can get somewhere to buy something suitable or I do an order online at some point. I now have all my spare DMC threads in it and all my other spare threads are in the snowman tin that Michele sent me as part of her blogoversary draw last year:)
I have also finished the needleroll for the S&S secret needleroll exchange. I had a bit of a crisis with it yesterday as I saw the one Rachael had stitched and decided that mine was nowhere near as nice and that my partner would probably hate it. Anyway Chris and I had been emailing back and forth yesterday and as she's not taking part in this exchange I emailed her a picture and asked what she thought. She thought it was pretty so told me not to stress! Lol! Anyway I was able to finish it off properly today as KarenV was very generously giving away some bits and pieces on her blog and I asked if I could have a bundle of ribbon. It arrived today and there was some that was perfect for the needleroll. Thank you so much Karen!
I made a start on Jane's RR last night. After finishing Winter Wonderland I was going to have a new start but then decided I'd do the RR first. I've almost finished one block and am loving stitching on the fabric Jane chose and the thread ( Olde Willow Stitchery Boysenberry) is gorgeous. I can't believe that we are well on the way with this RR and will be getting our pieces back in a couple of months!
That's it from me today. After tea I'm going to settle down with the RR, a glass of Ame and watch Dr Who! Lol! Have a wonderland weekend everyone and for those of us in the UK it's a long weekend:)
