Progress

Two posts in one day LOL!

Thought I would share some progress with you on both my Shepherds Bush 'Finch Song' and my other new start which is EEF 'Remember Me'


First up is 'Finch Song' I do really like the colours used in this design and the silk threads give it such lustre.



Of course I had to get that wee sheep finished , but as you can see overall I haven't made loads of progress.

Next up is 'Remember Me' by Ewe & Eye & Frieds (EEF), as those who know me know, EEF are one of my favourite designers of all time, and this is such a pretty design as always with EEF it hasn't disappointed me.

I just love the variety of different stitches used on most of these designs and this one has lots - satin stitch, Eyelet stitch, Rhodes, smyrnas and some 1/1 as well.

I'm stitching this on 36ct Antique white linen, using 1 strand of DMC, and I am using the recommended colours, as I just loved them.

Hope you are all having a great Sunday

Su, both your WIP are really lovely. You are right about the colours of Finch's Song. They are really jewel like but also subtle and warm. EEF is one of my favourite designers too and this is a lovely example of their designs. The heart in the roof is so pretty.
Warm hugs and happy Valentine's Day :>)
