Quiet week

I seem to be having a quiet week this week, I have no new work to show you as yet, my neighbourhood RR hasn't been touched since the 15th, but plan to stitch it over the weekend, Barbara has finished hers and it looks great. I have been stitching a project I have wanted to do for so long now and you know when you really get the urge to start it, well that was me, so I'm currently stitching 'No honey' by Birds of a feather, I have chosen to do it 1/1 on 32ct evenweave, I will post a picture of my progress on Friday, I know I should have a rotation, but I tend to be one of those stitchers that when I REALLY want to stitch something, I can't stop til its finished, though believe it or not I'm like that with the RR, but my mind has gone blank a bit at the moment and I have frogged the tree out that was growing in the bottom right corner as I hated it.


The picture I have to show you is Tap and Blackberries, this is a design by Oehlenschlager (sp) with this I won 1st in the linen section of our local show this year and I was really happy about it, its a real favourite of Marks, I have the companion piece to stitch as yet, called spade and berries, I loved doing this one very much, it was stitched 1/2, 2/2 and 3/2 so it has depth and texture to it.

Su - Tap and Blackberries is stunning! My DH would just love this piece! Congratulations on taking 1st with it! I can see why it won!

This is a gorgeous piece, Su!

I'm like you, very whimsical about my choice of stitching projects, and also haven't really been able to do a true rotation.

Can't wait to see your house once the spirit moves you again!!

Tap & blackberries is gorgeous - and the framing really sets it off beautifully :) I try to stick to a rotation, but tend to come unrailed every now and then 'cos I don't want to put something down ... if that's the case then I keep stitching - no point putting something down that you're loving, then picking up something you're not in the mood to stitch, is my way of thinking. I then put it down when I feel ready - it work for me :)

You do beautiful work. I love Tap and Blackberries and all your other pieces too.

I didn't mind being tagged at all. I was actually quite fun.

For some reason it wouldn't take my first post. Anyway, your work is beautiful. I stitch on a whim too.. One minute its crochet the next cross stitch whatever I feel like.

By the way, I didn't mind being tagged. As a matter of fact I rather enjoyed it.

Tap and blackberries is gorgeous, Su. Congrats on winning 1st with this piece!

(I love ragdolls too - but they're so expensive, LOL!)

Hey Su, Tap and Blackberries is a wonderful piece, and with the different textures, I'm sure it looks even better IRL! Can't wait for 'No Bees No Honey'. That's one of my favourites, too. And what's this term 'rotation' you keep talking about? Doesn't appear in my dictionary...
