Another 2 finishes :) did read correct!! I have 2 new finishes - 1 of which is framed and another is currently drying ready for ironing/framing tomorrow.

The second finish for 2012 is Autumn Fairy by Joan Elliott.  I finished her last night after having to wait for an extra reel of kreinik for her wings (from now on I will buy an extra reel to what is suggested as I've ran out on both Summer and Autumn now).

The next finish I have is the I Stitch Therefore I Stash sampler.  It became a slight UFO due to the french knots, so I attempted to change them into beads.  I finally decided tonight that it would look a lot nicer if I just left them out, so I took all the beads that I had put on off and framed it in a simple wooden frame.  Here it is:

Until next time :)

Well it is that time fast does time fly from one New Moon to the next?!  I have had a really good month this time round and have managed lots of stitching.  Here is my jar this month (all contents have now been put into the larger jar so I can start again)

A New Finish and a Framed Piece

Wow!! It has definitely been a while since I posted an actual stitching update.  I have to say though, my stitching bug did run away for a little bit and in it's place came tiredness due to pregnancy.  Now I'm feeling a lot less tired, I've managed a lot more stitching.

First up is a sampler I took over stitching for a friend.  It is stitched on 14ct aida, and I have to say I hate stitching on the stuff.  It took me a few weeks, but I finally finished it and here is the finished piece.

As you know from a long ago previous post, I finished my Summer Fairy and then just popped her away.  Well  I finally went to Hobbycraft and bought 2 new frames, one for Summer Fairy and the other for Autumn Fairy (when she gets finished that is).  Here is Summer Fairy looking lovely in her frame.

I've pulled Autumn Fairy back out again and I've also got the threads and beads ready for the next seasonal fairy - Winter.  I may not be able to start her for a little while though as I do have lots of projects on the go and need to shift some of them first.

Until next time, I hope you are all well.
