Hi everyone! I had the greatest of intentions to blog before the end of April so that I could share my smaller monthly finishes but, well, it just didn’t happen. So, here I am with a couple of April finishes even though we’re heading into the second week of May! First up, here’s my latest finish from Nikyscreations Primitive Calendar stitched on 32ct vintage mocha linen using the suggested threads.
Then, here’s the ornament I stitched for April. This is an older Homespun Elegance chart, Blessings, and I stitched this one on a piece of blue linen from my stash and the suggested threads. Not finished, finished as this is one I’ll be sending off for someone else to do!!!!
Continuing on with the Christmas theme, here’s the fourth block from PS ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’. Stitched on the suggested linen (32ct natural light) and threads.
I’m not planning to make these into little pillows until I’ve them all completed so at some point I will need to stitch a couple each month to give myself time to finish them for Christmas (hopefully this Christmas!). Here's a pic of the four completed already.
And then I want to share this one with you. KarenV over at My Favourite Things has started a new venture in offering a finishing service. I’ve always loved how she finished her stitching so was thrilled when I heard what she was planning. This is the wonderful job she did on my LHN ‘He’s a Flake’. I love what she did with him, my only request was that she finish him as a flat-backed ornament and I left everything else up to her. If you’re not familiar with Karen’s blog go check it out, she does the loveliest things. You can click on the links above or find her in the blog list in the sidebar.
And last, but by no means least, thank you everyone for the lovely comments you left on my last post about my Birds and Berries Needlebook. You sure know how to make a girl feel good and I really appreciate that so many took time to leave me a comment.
Until next time ….
