Hi Blogger Friends
I have been very lax of late in keeping up with my Blog, but at least I have been doing some stitching.
The following is my latest update.
Firstly here is this months Ornament for the 2013 Ornament SAL, I chose to stitch one of the Santa's from the Prairie Schooler Bk 20. St. Nicholas - as usual I will finish it off nearer to Christmas ready for my tree.
As I have managed to hurt my shoulder and neck I have been unable to sit and stitch at either of my Lowery Stand or my new Needle Needs one, so I have been using hand frames, hoops or stitching freehand. Below is what I have been up to
This will eventually be a folded needlesafe. It is worked on a linen band so no difficult finishing is required so I should be able to make it up without to much difficulty. It includes lots of different speciality stitches and I enjoyed my evening working on it. I actually made quite a bit of progress.
I spent a day working on Janury by Prairie Schooler and had a very good stitching session.
I then started work on my next FWC Card Exchange project, above is the start I have made it will be Foxgloves when completed, hopefully by my next post.
I then spent a couple of evenings working on English Garden, it is coming along very well and I am hoping to get this completed before the end of May.
The next bit of stitching I have worked on recently is the Roll Your Own Mandala which is a design by Tracy Horner of Ink Circles and can be found at this yahoo group page Roll Your Own 2013 .
Basically the design consists of four colour families and you select your own colours.
Below is my start on the colours I chose. I have so far come up with about 12 different combinations, it is a lot of fun.
Finally I dragged out my All Our Yesterdays design In the Poppy Field, below is my progress to date.
I have also managed to do some work on my Crochet Blanket, I am hoping by the winter it will be big enough to cover my legs it is currently about 2 foot square.
This has been my 99th post since restarting my Blog last November. For my 100th post I will do a giveaway and so will have a looksy through my stash and see what I can come up with for it.
Bye for now
