I am on a finishing roll so two more to go in the pile until I decide or have time to do something with them!
First finish was yesterday morning at craft club where I received a round of applause from the ladies after the last stitch went in!!! Love, love, love this finish.
Lizzie*Kate 6 Fat Men
32 count Amber linen
Started 5th October 2011
Finished 1st May 2012
SAL with Lisa.
As I should have stitched on this last night I wasn't sure quite what to pick up so as Shepherd's Bush The Journey was close to finishing I picked that and voila!
Shepherd's Bush The Journey
32 count vintage country peach linen
Started 27th February 2012
Finished 1st May 2012.
SAL with Barb.
I did leave off some of the speciality stitches as my poor brain just wouldn't compute so my plan is to add mine and Barb's initials to this piece and the year:) Next Monday I'll start a new SB piece but as I'm thinking of a piece for the private exchange I'm doing I won't be able to show it.
So that's all my WIPs finished barring HAED Guadian and BBD AotH so I have a nice clean slate of smaller stuff now. I shall start my May ornament for the Christmas All Year Round SAL either tonight or tomorrow night. I've chosen Country Cottage Needleworks Season of Love as the theme for May is gingerbread men / women.
The RAK I mentioned in my last post safely reached its destination so I can now show it. Dear Elaine hasn't been having the best time of it of late and I wanted to stitch her a little something just to lift her spirits so I stitched this.
Primitive Betty's My Friend
32 count cobblestone linen
hand dyed threads by dear Michelle & DMC
Started 14th April 2012
Finished 15th April 2012
RAK for Elaine.
Last night, after I'd finished The Journey, I had a look through the pile of charts I picked out last week and decided to start BOAF Love. This photo is awful! The fabric is actually white!
I also finished my snood but no photo yet as I need to get it sewn up and I might have to block it again. Cast on another one this time for Abi!
That's all for today. Just want to wish my dear friend Michelle a very happy birthday for tomorrow :)
With much love.
