Some finishes...small ones :)

I completed my first PS Block for my quilt. It had quite a lot of stitching involved. I've added two more birds on the right side of the garden as I plan to do away with the personalisation parts for all the blocks. Margaret W and me are planning to design an 11th block specially for that. Yasmin is joining Margaret and me for the SAL.

Stitched on Antique White Belfast with DMC threads

Next up is another finish...yeah we're on a roll here! :) This is my final installment for the Be Glad Sajou, a SAL with Jess. Jess has one more part to go that it is the lace fringe beneath the blocks. Mine will be finished as a stitcher's wallet and I have some ideas juggling around. Also there's going to be a wee bit more of stitching for the wee pincushion and a scissor sheath that I have planned for the wallet. Stay tuned dear friends ;)

And here's a load of my sis X'mas stitching finish. She's on the run!! Their mainly from Cross Stitch Crazy Mag, some years back. The white ones are stitched on 16ct Aida and the green one on 18ct Davosa. I think she's getting used to these higher counts. We're like a little factory, she stitches and I finish them. I need to get into the finishing groove somehow ... before Christmas!




Have a nice weekend everyone!

Comment Notes: Hey Lizzy, you finished with 'My Needle and My Floss' yet?? I see Harmien coming with a cane!! :D The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pattern must prevail! (written with gusto) :)

  1. Wow, you've been busy!! Love the PS block AND the Be Glad Sajou (I may have to start that one too now, hee hee!). BUT don't you dare use me to pester poor Lizzy... LOL!!! I'm sure she'll finish it in her own good time and then the journey continues for our Comforting Lady! I still enjoy her travels, even though she's far away!
