We will start with my current WIP report, I will show pictures of the wips I actually worked on. The first is Marquise by Jardin Prive'
Chicago is definitely living up to it's nickname "The Windy City" I can almost fill the chill. Next is my old friend the Sea Goddess by Joan Elliott.
All of her back stitching has been done and she is now on my scroll rods waiting to have her many, many, many beads to be added. I did get a start on my August-Snowflower Diaries SAL.
It was put aside so I could finish the back stitching on Sea Goddess and something came over me and I have not picked it back up. I have the chart all printed out for this next one Linen & Thread Mystery SAL, it's complete thru July
but I have been consumed but a couple of things. One is...
and the other is a NEW Start:
This is another Joan Elliott mermaid called Belle de Mer
I am absolutely loving stitching this one. It started as a Facebook SAL and I can't put is down even knowing my other two SALs will get behind. I also have a few other new starts, they are Four Freedoms by Little House Needleworks.
This was one of my starts for July which everyone on Facebook is calling patriotic month so I had to join in. The other one is called Seeds of Freedom by Silver Creek Samplers. Stitched on coffee and tea dyed fabric following Vonna Pfeiffer's bake and baste instructions.
I also drank the (koolaid) or should I say coffee and started the Coffee Quaker from Heartstring Samplery. Also on bake and basted fabric.
I think June was everything coffee month, this is one of my recent finishes, it's called This Is How We Brew It, part of the Cool Beans series from Hands On Design
I have the other charts for this 9 part series to be stitched at a later date. I also finished a small ornament for a Christmas in July SAL piece, it is 'Twas the Night from JBW /designs.
These are quick small designs and make great ornaments, I made three of them last year. I didn't forget to finish stitching the May, June and July pieces from Snowflower Diaries.
Last but not least is the finish of Frida Kahlo, one of Mexico's greatest artist.
It is a simple design but I think it is perfect. I will share when I have it in it's perfect frame.
Well thank you all for staying and reading this whole post and for following my blog. I really do appreciate you all. Until next time I will be making those wonderful little xxs.
