Hi Blogger Friends,
Thank you for the lovely comments on my last blog.
Well this is what I have been up to over the last week.
Daily Project - Prairie Schooler Alphabet
This project has gone from this
This took 24hrs 45 mins over 16days. I am now working on Letter C and this is where I have got to so far
Monthly Project 2 - Joyful World SAL (The Snowflower Diaries)
This is the progress I have made on the February section of the project
Rotation 3 - A Stitch in Time (HAED)
This went from this
I spent another 10 hrs over 3 days, making the total time so far over 30 hrs. I have come to the conclusion I do not like Max Colors far too much confetti for me. This project as it is will be abandoned. I am going to purchase the regular chart, regular colors and change the fabric to 28 ct 1 over 1 and use parking like I have with Large Treasure Hunt Bookshelf. It is unlikely that I will be restarting this project this year but I do love the design so I will do it at some stage.
So for the remainder of my Rotation Week I pulled out a full coverage UFO called When Dreams Come True, this design has artwork by Leonid Afremov whose work I love and was charted by Love Thy Thread who are no longer in business. I have the kitted version which I had on 18ct Aida below is the cover art, my starting point (originally started in November 2014 and then left) and where I got to. I will continue with this project in Week 3 of next months rotation before swapping it out for 3 months for Large Treasure Hunt Bookshelf
Save the Stitches - Blackwork Journey
This went from
and here is a close up of the area I worked. I spent 4 hrs this week on this project and again I am really pleased with the progress I have made, I intend to complete this block next Thursday.
However, I did embark on another project. I had been watching a You Tube Floss Tube video and the lady on it showed this project that was a freebie chart with Cross Stitch Crazy last year. I knew I had the chart and when I got the magazine had not been that impressed, but seeing the finish on the video changed my opinion. I also wanted to give my able stretcher frame another go, it was boxed up to go to the charity shop as when I first used it I did not get along with it very well. Any way below is a photo of what it should look like and my progress so far. I am stitching it on 28ct Star Sapphire Linen using the recommended DMC floss and the design is by Riverdrift House
On Sunday I succumbed to making a very measly start on a kit my daughter got me for Christmas/Birthday. It is the Winter Russian Doll by Alisa
Finally on Saturday I purchased three charts Lady Lilac which I wrote about on my last blog post, White Dragon and Loneliness of Autumn all from Artecy. I think at £6.86 per pdf download is really reasonable for charts of this type. They might not be quite as detailed as the HAED charts but I think for me are more achievable in the short term.
So that's it for this week.
I hope you all have had good stitchy weeks and I will be back next Monday with my next update.
Bye for Now
