Some progress

As we are going away for the weekend tomorrow I thought it might be a good time this afternoon to update my blog as I won't have time tomorrow morning. I thought I would show you progress with Woodland Walk, I am stitching it on 32ct Douglas Fir hand-dyed Sugar Maple Fabrics Belfast linen, the bit you can see that I've started is the fox cubs head.
I also have been stitching my next house on my NRR due to the fact I have 9 squares on mine and there are only 8 of us in it, I am stitching a needlework shop, seeing as the love of the needle is what brought all of us together, and no I'm not showing progress on that one yet.

The fabric and chart and thread which is the next picture is what I am taking with me for our weekend away visiting the family, I have to take stitching with me just in case..... I am in the Wabbit mood and haven't done one of these for ages, so this one I am going to stitch on 32ct Spring Green hand-dyed linen by Kates Kolours and the threads I am using are those by Heavenly Hues - of course as usual I have totally changed all the colours, the wabbits tail I will do in Whisper thread. Hopefully I will get it finished as they are so quick to stitch.

Here is a finished picture of one I did a few years ago, this one is called Wabbits Wonder and I stitched it for a dear friends wife.


The other I did as a birthday gift for a work colleague, they look very different although they are the same design.

Thanks for sharing your picture of Woodland Walk - (I was confused thinking it was DT!)

Love those Wabbits! That Spring Green linen is scrumptious!

I like the Pollyanna Pickering designs ,she is from Derbyshire not that far from where I live.
The Wabbits are weally cute ;) it is interesting how different they look just by changing the background fabric.

This wabbit design is great! And both hearts look so different! Like you, I can't go to my family's without my cross stitch. Generally, I have a special "on-the-go" project for these occasions. I even have one that stays in my car, just in case...
Enjoy your week end!

Hi! I love your Wabbits and have a number of them in my stash. Can you tell me what type of ribbon you use and the secret of stitching it onto the heart? I've tried this technique on a number of pieces and I hate what the final results look like.

Your finishes are beautiful!

Lelia said...

These are darling! How cute! Thankx for sharing your hopping friends : )

AnneS said...

Aw, those wascally wabbits are really cute - what a fun design, and beautiful finishing with the ribbon :) Thanks also for posting the step-by-step piccies for the ribbon finish - you're a real sweetheart, and that's definitely gonna be printed off for the day I need it :)

Love those wabbits! I have not seen these two design before--I wonder if they are OOP. I have a couple of her other wabbits. I really have to try stitching one sometime! :)
