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.">Link
