Anyway, I have a couple of minis to share...
Bookworm bookmark kit by Vervaco
Stitched on included 14 count white aida with DMC threads
This was a lovely fun stitch. I tend not to stitch on 14 count aida any more but it was nice and I think gives a clean, sharp finish. I am putting this away for a Christmas gift to be included with books for my elder son (aged 6).
I have almost finished this...
Decorating the Tree by Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe
Using VMSS hand-dyed threads and a mystery piece of evenweave
This was one of my Crazy January Challenge 2014 pieces and I hadn't picked it up since the day I put the first few stitches in. For some reason I didn't like it, I think I just had new start fatigue as it was project 13 of 15. However, I have worked on this for a couple of evenings now and really love it. The threads are a dream to work with, sliding easily through the fabric and giving great coverage. Though I don't tend to stitch much in the primitive style, I am looking forward to completing this tonight and then finishing as suggested in the kit into a small hanger for Christmas.
My big finish this week was this...
Halloween Mystery SAL 2014 by stitchersanon
Stitched on Polstitches stormy skies 28 count evenweave
in DMC 310, 3 over 2.
I was so proud of myself for keeping up with this SAL! It was a weekly SAL in 12 parts and I just loved every stitch. It was relaxing to do as I chose to stitch as recommended in DMC 310 throughout. I had a few issues at first as I decided to stitch landscape on my fabric instead of portrait (didn't read the instructions properly) and then after frogging quite a lot of the header and restarting, I decided the coverage of 2 over 2 wasn't good enough so frogged again and restitched 3 over 2. But I am thrilled with it, I love the fabric and the design, especially the cute spider and ghost!
If anyone has any good suggestions for how I can finish it simply and quickly so I can display it on Friday, I'm all ears!
Well, I'd better get back to my minis, only 4 more days to go!
Before I do go, would there be any interest in continuing the Mega Mini Monthly Madness into November? I've been discussing this with the current host over at Pull the Other Thread. She isn't able to continue hosting into November due to other stitching commitments, but she has suggested that I continue into next month and that if there is enough interest we keep passing it along each month! If you would be interested in joining me next month, please leave a comment below, and if there is enough interest then I will set up a proper grown-up linky thing on my blog so that we can continue seamlessly into November!
Hope your needles are flying this week, mine certainly are!
