PIF for Elisa

At long last I have finally stitched Elisa's PIF. She has had the longest wait and I really must apologise to her as I had planned to get them all done much sooner than I did but at least I did them within the 365 days!!!! Anyway I know that Elisa really liked the SB Friendship Roll I stitched for Andrea so I decided to stitch it for her also. The fabby I used is slightly lighter but I think it looks just as good.Shepherd's Bush Friendship Roll

PIF for Elisa.

I have been doing other stitching too so I do have some progress to show:) First up is Beatrix. Now I am spurred on by the fact that I am so close to finishing this as once I finish the motif I am working on I only have four more and two of those are small. My plan to finish this by the end of the year actually looks as though it's going to work! I have done a little more since this piccie.

Also coming along nicely is Lizzie*Kate Merry Christmas By The Letter. Still hoping for a finish in time for Christmas but not sure I will get it done as I have a few things I need to do.

Lastly, and I do hope you're not getting fed-up of this, is HAED Guardian. I am about halfway down my 6th page now and just wish I could get more done on this. I think next year I am going to have to concentrate on it a lot more or it'll never get finished in a million years!

That's all my stitchy news. Hubby and I are Christmas shopping this next week so it's possible there may not be much stitching going on! I have to say that although I love Christmas Day the build up in recent years just gets me down and I wish I had a magic wand to make it all happen! Lol!

Finally a huge thank you to everyone who wished Abi a Happy Birthday. She has read all the comments and says thank you and sends hugs to everyone of you:)

Sorry this is short but I don't have much to say right now!

Take care everyone!

What a beautiful needleroll and a perfect PIF!!! Your WIPs look great and that HAED is gorgeous!

Was admirring the PIF on Elisa's blog - beautiful! BP is looking fab too, am sure you'll get that HD soon. I do like the L*K piece too - they are always a fun stitch. I could never get fed-up of seeing Guardian updates - it's a stunner! :0)
I'm doing most of my shopping online again this year & highly recommend it - much better to let the postie take the strain! LOL :0)

Wow, you really are close on your BP! Almost there! All of your other projects are lovely as well.

Sally, you are the needleroll queen, it's fabulous.
The LK and the HAED are coming along nicely.
Have fun shopping

I love your needleroll, beautiful and neatly finished!

May i ask what colour are you using for the BP quaker, it is looking beautiful and you are nearly done with it.
The other two are coming along great too!!

Your PIF gift is gorgeous and Elisa must be thrilled with it.
Gosh Sally, I can't believe how fast you have stitched Beatrix.
She was a two year slog for me!
I think yours is stunning in the colour you've chosen.

I am especially fond of Forget-Me-Nots and your needleroll is stunning!

Sharon said...

Beautiful needleroll. Your stitching is looking fabulous as always.

Brigitte said...

Oh wow. You were doing a lot of stitching. And your Beatrix will be finished this year, I'm sure about it. Mine is also very near to completion, just 1 1/2 more motifs and I'll be done.
