Quick Stitching update.....

Gentle friends now that I have wrapped up my "Travel Log" I am almost at a loss as to what to post about....  I did want to thank you all for you kind comments and emails about the trip.  

Today I think I'll post a couple of stitching things....  

First up will be a piece  I stitched for an Exchange I did over on the HOE Blog.  My partner was Leigh at Kielrain's Stitches..... and here's what I made and sent.....

... if I remember correctly I stitched it on 32ct Silkweaver "Sterling" using Belle Soie "Plush Plum" silk, the chart is called "French Country Letter's" and is from JBW Designs.  I liked the idea of buttons (the model has a little button decoration) along the top and so I pulled out my button bag and found some older and newer ones that worked.

I have been stitching along on "Feast of Friendship" and here is a snap of the progress.....


.... The colours are all wonky because the light was odd and photoshop didn't help a bit........  I am a bit further along than this as I took the photo on Friday.  I have switched up a couple of floss choices and will make sure to post them.

That's about it for today sports fans - thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Beautiful stitching Edgar! The colors in Feast of Friendship are so pretty, and they must be enjoyable to stitch. JBW Designs are always pretty too!

What a darling exchange piece! I bet Leigh will be thrilled.

Such a pretty exchange gift you sent.

Love the fruit bowl, that's so colourful.

Melissa said...

Lovely stitching!

The piece you made for the exchange is really cute - I like how you have the pins in the corners like that!

The BBD piece is nice - love the colours!

Joy said...

That new piece is gorgeous. Is the fabric hand dyed or is it just the problems with the lighting? I'm being turned to the overdyed fabric/thread side slowly but surely.

Beautiful, both pieces.

Colleen said...

Thanks you so much for the wonderful travel log :) You are so fortunate to be able to go to those beautiful places.

I love the exchange you made. I'm sure she'll love it too.

Your blog is the first one I check out each day and you never disappoint me with what you're doing, making, or baking.
