First up is my second YOTA project of the year. I can't wait for the YOTA update so here it is...
Clocks by Lanarte
Stitched with supplied evenweave and threads
Started 8th January 2014, finished 9th March 2015
Boy am I glad to see this one finished! I was going cross-eyed with all the sepia and browns. I personalised it a bit by changing the times on some of the clocks, to include the time of day we got married and the times both of our sons were born.
I needed some colour next, so for some reason I chose this one...
Autumn House by The Trilogy
Stitched on a random piece of linen
with recommended WDW and GAST threads
Started 11th January 2015, finished 10th March 2015
Autumn House isn't technically finished as it needs some autumn buttons sewing on. I have some on order and hopefully it will be properly done in time for Gifted Gorgeousness on the 15th, as this was a gift from Heather.
And finally for the finishes, here's the March finish for the Joan Elliott Calendar SAL I am taking part in along with Mii Stitch and others.
Stitched on Misty Morn linen from Sparklies
using recommended DMC threads
Started February 2015, finished 11th March 2015
Three finishes in three days! Today I picked up one of my Crazy January Challenge pieces and worked on it while the boys enjoyed their last afternoon "off sick".
Easter Blessings by Stitchers Anon
I had already stitched the little chick in the basket on the day I started it, but I haven't picked this one up since. Today I managed to stitch Holmesy the Hare and Fergus the Deer. Such a cute design! I have the lettering and the border to do and then it's finished.
My plan for the year was to have one old piece and one of my new starts on the go at the same time, swapping each one when it was finished or when I felt like it. Unfortunately none of my older pieces are grabbing me at the moment! So if you are interested, please take a look at my Unfinished Object tab at the top and let me know which project you would like to see up next. I'll go with the majority!
Thanks for looking. Until next time,
