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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.
