Finishing

I have been busy over the last week and have neglected my blog somewhat, but I have got things to show you because of it. The first is a small ABC sampler freebie by Anne Les Petites Croix which I stitched last year sometime (I think it was then), its been lying in the drawer waiting to be finished, I finished it as a small door hanging, its stitched on 32ct evenweave which is hand-dyed, I thought this was a nice spring coloured design..


The second is another by Anne Les Petites Croix, this is one of the 4 seasonal hearts she has in her freebies, they are beautiful, this one is Spring, again its been sat in the drawer waiting to be finished. I have stitched this one on 32ct hand-dyed linen by Kates Specials Kolours Klub, I thought it was a really nice spring coloured fabric, I loved doing this one and hopefully will complete all 4 when I have the time. I have made it into a small cushion and it is now hanging off the bedstead.



My 3rd finish I have had done for ever, but just not finished it, so I decided I would make a small pillow out of it and place it in the pillow basket. Its by Lizzie*Kate and its self explanatory, I stitched in on Aida, I always feel L*K designs suit Aida better, I changed the colours somewhat and used my own, its more muted than it should be

Now, I have a fourth, which I started stitching on Tuesday and finished on Thursday night, I have done all the finishing on it too yesterday and it looks lovely, but I can't show you yet as its a gift for someone, and I know she comes to my blog, so as I don't want to spoil the surprise you'll have to wait for that one.

some great finishing there.I like the house in the background on the photo of the Lizzie Kate project.The french designs are so pretty ,I like the fresh clean colours used.I always found myself going for designs using earthy tones but now find I am leaning towards more delicate pastels.
Thanks for your help on the tagging,wasn't sure how it worked as you were the first to tagg me :)

I am very glad to reach your blog today! That's because I wanted to thank you for your kind comment on my heart. I am absolutely delighted to see all your finishings, and also to see how much we have in common when it comes to tastes: designs in cross stitch, singers, movies... Funny, really!
I'll place your blog in my favs right now so I can come back and visit! Have a nice monday (although I hate mondays, it can't be the same for everyone, can it?!!)
