So here they are... the first one is a BBD, 'Willow House.' I couldn't get the recommended colour of linen, tobacco, so bought a one called brandy and that was a bright rust colour and I hated it.. so I used this instead.. because I wasn't fussy on the colour it got pushed to the bottom of my basket. But here it is,, ta-da... finished!
Then I stitched another motif on my Rose Manor, 'Spring Quaker,' so that is moving along.(it's the bottom one on the left as you look at it.
'Summer' Celtic Lady had been pushed this into my UFO basket because I had made a mistake and couldn't find it. But I sat one evening and frogged all of the pale blue section of her skirt and re-did it all, plus a bit more over two evenings. The gold was made easier by using thread heaven, why had I never heard of it for metallic threads before?? It made it so much easier and I happily stitched until I had finished all the blue section and all that's left now of her skirt, are the greens and some more gold.
And this Bothy Thread called 'Buzzy Days,' is my real UFO because having finished all the stitching, I had the back stitching to do... ugh!But in two hours I have managed to do the leaves and dandelions to the left of the little mouse. I re-did the outline of the mouse, as I had outlined it in black and it was supposed to be a thread colour called stone.
So I am feeling very virtuous as it was really hard to leave my 'Poppies' and also my Chatelaine 'Convent's Herbal Garden.' to do these other WIPs.
I intend to rotate all my WIPs for two evenings and try to finish one every other month.
I hope I can, as I am dangerously close to be stitching well into my hundreds!!!LOL
I hope you too can catch up on your WIPs...
