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.



  1. The birth sampler is lovely! Fairy is devine! love the fabric you used.

  2. Cute birth sampler. You're such a good friend to finish it for your friend, especially when you dislike stitching on Aida.

    Summer Fairy is gorgeous. The simple frame really makes her stand out all the more.


  3. You are a star Steph! xxx

    Love your framed Summer Fairy. She is a beauty :-)
