Stitching Up A Storm!

Hello from a rather misty east coast of England. The sun is trying to break through but it looks like it might be the perfect day to stitch or read.

Since I last posted I have finished 3 pieces which have now gone into the rather large finishing pile I have. The other day i went through my stash of finishing fabric and managed to pick some out for several of said items in the pile and will, one day, get some done!

You may remember on my last post that I would have had another finish had I not had to unpick the vine. Well this is the one that caused me all that trouble!

Tralala Coeur de Cygne

Unknown fabric


Started 2nd April 2019

Finished 8th May 2019

I just love this one even though it caused me a headache!

This next one I found started when tidying out my crafting drawers. I have no idea when I started it but I got it finished this last week!

iStitch Designs

40 count ( I think) Gander linen


I don't know why I left it languishing in a drawer as it's such a pretty design.

Last year I joined in a free SAL that I found on a blog. I only stitched it at craft group and after I was there on Tuesday I only had two words to stitch so, of course, those two words had to be done!

Dessine Par Elke SAL Christmas 2018

28 count fabric

DMC, Carrie's Creations & GAST

Started 4th September 2018

Finished 15th May 2019.

I have no idea how I'm going to finish it!

I know I said I was only going to blog my finishes but I am going to have to show my WIPs on this biggie. It is Shakespeare's Peddler A Saviour's Praise. I am taking this steady in the hope that I don't make any mistakes! I am joining in the SAL on Instagram but stitching it on a Monday instead of a Sunday. I am loving it so far.This is 2 evenings stitching.

That's all my news for now. Thank you to those of you who have dropped by and have also left a comment. I truly appreciate it.

Until next time.

With much love Sally xxx

Lovely stitching, I think we all have something tucked away that we have forgotten about! x

Maggie said...

Lovely stitching Sally. I don't know how big it is but I think the Christmas piece would look nice finished as a pillow?

Hope you get better weather this week

I'm enjoing seeing everyone stitch A Saviours Praise!

Carol said...

Lovely finishes, Sally, especially the Christmas pillow. I had printed off the chart, but never stitched it--it would make a great pillow! Enjoy your week :)

Julie said...

I think the Christmas SAL would make a lovely drawstring bag, a bit like Santa's sack.

Katie said...

Great work on everything.

Andrea said...

Beautiful finishes, the swan design is just so pretty.
