Hi everyone! Well, February turned into one of those months when I felt like I didn’t achieve much stitching. Instead, it feels more like I’d a case of startitis but didn’t get far with anything.
I decided to make a start on Brenda Gervais’ Noel Sampler. Ideally this will be something I’m going to work on each month. I’ve the chart broken down into 9 sections……have I completed what I wanted to stitch in February? Given this is the last day of the month, the answer is no! Here is what I have got done though…
I’m stitching this on 28ct Zweigart that was originally antique white but I’ve dyed it a soft grey. This is charted for DMC which is what I am using. After taking this picture I realised I’d the needle parked slap bang in the middle …… ignore!!!!
Next up is another one with a Christmas/winter feel. This is Stitch Me Merry from Atelier Perdu which was released in four parts leading up to Christmas.
Again, I’m looking at this as one to work on through the year with (hopefully) a finish for this Christmas. I’m doing it as a SAL with my friend, Margaret (no blog), and it’s lovely to have the company. My choice of fabric has been a 32ct blue that was in my stash and I’m using a mix of the suggested colours and DMC.
Another start has been Heartstring Samplery’s Forever Young. Not much progress to report on this one as you’ll see from the picture….
I’m stitching this one on 28ct Permin/Wichelt Dusty Miller linen and using a mix of the suggested overdyeds and DMC.
My intentions of having Blackbird Designs Garden Club series completed this month bit the dust. Here are all 12 in a pile …..
The only thing I have left to do is the over one stitching on this top square….that is all!! I figured if I posted about it here maybe it would spur me on to actually sit down and get it done…..let’s see!
And that’s about it on the stitching front. I’m hoping March will be a better month for me stitching-wise. I’m feeling the need of working on something Spring related and moving on to working with brighter colours.
Hope all is well with you and yours. As always, thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I do appreciate it.
Until next time…..
