WIP Progress Photos

Since my last post I have been working away on two of my currents WIPs.  The first, when finished, is going to be my largest finish.  I have now finished another row, only four more to go.

The second is my progress on the Sorpresa 3 SAL.  Lots of trees in this section which drove me batty and I had to go out and buy more of the DMC colour for them as you use soo much.  Not many left to go, just a few more down the slope and two little deer and then I can start work on the church up top.

Next up I have an exchange piece to start.
Until next time, happy stitching.

The Three B's

Birds, Bees and Butterflies that is!!

My recent exchange over at Stitched With Love Exchanges had the above theme and here is what I stitched for my partner Dawn.

The bird design is a freebie pattern created by Luli and its soo simple and pretty.  Dawn had blue down as her favourite colour so I used a very pale blue thread colour on navy linen.  I created a little wall hanging finish. The extras were fun to find and put together, cant believe I found the butterfly shaped cookie cutter.

My parcel arrived from Edit and I just adore this wallhanging that she made for me. 

This is one bird design I have been fond of for a while but never actually got around to stitch.  I'm soo pleased she chose this design for me.  The little novelty people are actually wooden salt and pepper shakers and they are soo sweet.  Thank you Edit for such a lovely exchange.

Until next time, happy stitching

A Mystery Sampler

I have just finished stitching the first part in the Little House Needleworks Mystery Sampler.  I enjoyed the first half of the arch but then when I came to the second half I just wanted it finished.  It doesnt look like it has a lot of stitching in it, but it took me a good week to finish it up.
I'm waiting on the second part to be sent over from the US along with the newest BBD design with the bird (got a thing about birds in designs).

I dont think I will be doing a lot over the next couple of days, I woke during the night with cold and flu symptoms and this morning I have a sore throat, stuffed up nose, blocked ear and weepy eyes.  YUCK, I hate being sick!!!
Until next time, happy stitching
