Lots of stitching has been going on the last 2 weeks.
"Life's A Stitch" by Lizzie Kate
32ct Flax Linen
Butter Bean WDW, Raspberry Frost GA, Flax GA, Summer Blossom (SNC 249) TG- Silk,
Lexington Green GA, Marigold - Chameleon (South Africa), DMC 3771 and Scuppernog WDW.
First up I started and finished Life's a Stitch, given to me by Anne of Dolls Musing. This chart is soo sweet but let me tell you the satin stitching all around was a challenge for me. OH BOY!!! Satin stitching is easy, really it is. But I kept skipping one little hole every now and then. Well I learned to keep checking the chart for alinement for the satin stitches compared to the inner border. Thank goodness I stitched the inside first (like your suppose to do), then came the inner border. That's what saved me lots of frogging - even though I did have to Frog alot. I went with soft tones but I used Summer Blossom silk by the Thread Gather - one of my favorites, for the blossoms.
ALL DONE:))) In to the pile of finishes it goes....I will finish it and many others but for now I want to keep stitching.
NOW the FUN part!!!
Who would like to stitch this traveling chart next??? Please leave a comment on this post. That's all that's needed. Of course mention that you would like to stitch it next, because if not, I will assume you are not interested. And you know me I always add some extra goodies:) I will draw the winner on Sunday the 25th of August.
My update for last week and this week for Bothy Threads Cut Thru Monday SAL.
I finished all of page 3 of 12 on Fairy Hill and I did all the back stitching too. So many darling items are showing up now. I completed the owl, bees, fairy dress, wings, and I think those are bloomers right below the daisies? More green grass was done and I did stitch on this for several days to get the back stitching all caught up. I so enjoy seeing everyone's progress on their Bothy Thread work.
You can look Here at Debbie's blog and HERE on Linda's blog for the SAL's Updates. There are lots of stitcher's who are participating and incredible charts they have chosen. Have a peek:)
stitching so much so that I keep thinking "Oh I should wait till I get this and that completed". So silly of me. I did find some more Tinkerbell's that were still in boxes after going thru some of my moms things. But they are HUGE! I will have to have a photo session of them and share with you soon.
Progress on Ann Dale... finished the motif of the left and completed 2 more plus .....
Well good news is that I am shopping for a new camera. Our son has to have a Digital camera for a upcoming class:)))))))))))))
Wishing you a fun and happy summer. With my Love and Appreciation - Annette
