WIPocalyse and BAP progress

This is The Arbour by Shepherds Bush. A small that should have taken no time at all.. I say should have but I didn't like the rows between each section so I chose to stitch different stitches.
I had a few tries on some scap linen to see the effect, hence why it took longer. But I am pleased with the results. Its very pretty and delicate looking and should be finished this coming week.


And this is my BAP Rosewood Manor Quakers and Quilts. This is going to be my year long project but I have several bigger designs to stitch as well.....
So the sooner I have posted this, the sooner I can get back to my stitching!!

Happy Stitching all

Great starts Chris!!

Arbor is very, very pretty! I think I would tire of all the starting and stopping of threads, though. Can't wait to see your BAP progress!

I have that SB design and just love the colors. Love the ideas of the different bands on it as well.
