I have a little finish to share with you today. This was a gift from Mii Stitch last year. We decided to do a private Spring exchange, and both chose the same chart to give to the other! I really truly enjoyed every single stitch of this one, and am very pleased with my fabric choice too!
Lover of Spring Light by Soda Stitch
Stitched on 16 count Provence aida by Sew it All
using DMC threads
Started 7 February 2016, finished 27 February 2016
A couple of close ups, the flowers were my favourites...
Last week I forced myself to work on Cut Thru Rocket by Bothy Threads. I have a love/hate relationship with this piece. I love the fun design, the bright colours and sparkly threads. What I hate is the fabric, a giant piece of 16 count navy blue aida which was really stiff. However, it's for elder son's room, I promised it to him, and it's non-negotiable has to be finished this year.
Last week I went from here...
which is pretty much where I'd left it after starting on 2 January last year as part of Debbie's Crazy January Challenge, to here...
It's looking much better, and the more I stitch on it, the more I'm enjoying it! The fabric is getting a little softer with handling (I am stitching this one in hand) and I am getting quicker at finding the holes in the dark aida. A white tea towel across my lap is the secret!
I'm happy to be able to update my WIP page with my progress on this one and am still hoping this will be finished at the end of 2016.
See you soon for a Gifted Gorgeousness update!
