Stitching goings-on in February

Hi everyone!  Well, here I am for the second time, sneaking in right at the end of the month with a blog post.  I can’t say that I’ve had turbo needles this month my stitching has been more slow and steady but I do have things to share.

Last time I had made a start on this one….

BBD's Apple Orchard  #3 Garden Club Series

As you can see it’s now ready to be consigned to the finish pile.  I must admit to me this seemed like a lot of leaf stitching and didn’t really fill me with lots of enthusiasm.  However, once I started stitching I loved the colours and completely changed my mind about how much I liked it.   This was stitched using the suggested threads and the same mystery fabric as the first one.

With the second one finished I’d the third waiting in the wings.. Here’s my progress so far..

BBD's Honey Bee #4 Garden Club Series

Once again I’m using the suggested threads on the same mystery fabric.  What I’m not doing is stitching on two different pieces of fabric and joining them up.  I decided I would stitch this on one piece.

Given that I’m only stitching Christmas Thoughts Sampler from The Drawn Thread on Sundays I don’t have much progress to share but there is a little bit…

Aside from only stitching this on a Sunday there were also a couple of Sundays this month where no stitching happened at all.  I’m using the suggested 32ct Summer Khaki Belfast Linen and threads.

And that’s my stitching round-up for this time. I don’t have much left to stitch on BBD’s Honey Bee so I’m hoping there’ll be a finish to report in March.  The 4th in the series is waiting in the wings so that will likely be my next start.  Yes, I’m aiming to have this whole series stitched this year.

Until next time…….
