I have been busy getting on with my stitching. This UFO has all the stitching complete, just got to do the top stitching, which I hate! I think just an hour a week will do for me!
And this has been an easy stitch. Its called Poppies by Bothy Threads and a delight to relax with each evening.
And this is my Chatelaine Convent's Herbal Garden.
I have had this to stitch for over three years and have been slightly afraid to get started on it.. but I have some stitching friends who also have Chatelaines which have never been started.
The chart and all the silk floss was really costly and I kept thinking I should make a start,,
The Fabric I bought from Polstitches and when it arrived I was terribly disapointed because it was just too too a bright blue. So I soaked it in hot water, then in cold with a few drops of bleach and this is how it turned out. It looks really nice.
The middle picture of the flower (unfinished at this time ) was 1 over 1 and I was glad of my magnifying glass.
I have stitched around the middle picture and stitched some of the Algerian eyelets.
I think its going to be a lovely year long project.
Happy stitching everyone.
