Hello - How are things in your neck of the woods? What a wonderful couple of days I've had - I'm making the most of all the rain we've been having and have been stitching my heart out. Finally - it has been such a long time - the last stitches went into Leanne's Stitching Round the Block piece, here is a little sneak peek. This is going back to Leanne and she is going to stitch her own Round Three. Don't you love her colours? (Hi Leanne, it will go in post probably Friday when I go into town) Now Raewyn, it's on to your gorgeous piece.............
And another long neglected project, A Gardener's Journal by Anni Downs. I have completed some more stitcheries, but in my usual haphazard way, none of the blocks have all the stitcheries needed done, so no more piecing yet! I believe the SAL deadline is March, when the girls are starting the next project, so better get my butt moving on this one too. The new SAL project Chookyblue is organising looks tempting too .......
There have also been a few stitches into Virtues Sampler by LHN, below is a headless girl and a tree missing a branch, but progress all the same. Last time I photographed this, I think she had a head, but there was a very sad case of unpicking and restitching of the dress required. I hate it when that happens.
Believe it or not, there has even been a little stitching on some Butterfly Garden miniblocks, no pics yet though. I think all this WIP stitching is to ease my guilt over signing up to stitch Vignette, the lovely new Mystery Block Quilt by Leanne Beasley. But really, how could I turn down starting a gorgeous new quilt of Leanne's when I already have two others of hers started?? Thankfully, I'm still waiting on the fabrics and threads ordered before Christmas, so that'll give me some time to work on a few other long suffering WIP's!
There's a brand new blog, Vignette in Stitches, for all those keen on stitching projects from Leanne's gorgeous new mag 'Vignette'. Pop on over there and see what some of the girls have done already! Thanks Perri for starting the blog and also to Ms Farmyard Crafts for tempting me into starting *another* project! Didn't need much persuading though, did I? Maree from Farmyard Crafts and I have something in common - a very long list of WIP's - at least mine would be long if I finally finish making it. AWIP list of WIP's! lol
I think I really do need help - when I told her that she suggested I start something else! LOL
Can't thank you enough for the lovely comments about my SSCS and 6 Things swap goodies, I really appreciate you stopping by and reading and/or sharing your thoughts with me.
Till next time, happy stitching to you ........... Nicky
