I am back again after a pretty productive week or so. Finished up a woolfelt candle mat from last year. This is Autumn Apples..
It's cute. I have more woolfelt kits that I really should start doing.
And here are a couple of WIP finishes, yay! First is Blackbird by BBD..
I wanted to ruche brown ribbon for the trim but turns out I had none. Shucks. So I took two pieces of transparent ribbon and just attached it to the bottom. It's a different look. This is my 5th finish for 2016 and was a DUCJ/FSAL2015 start.
The second WIP I finished is Peep, a Cricket Collection design from the chart called Rabbits Delight #243, in case you want to know..
Adorable! Peep has been in the WIP pile for two years and stitched up rather fast. All I had was the triangular portion at the top done. So last night watching yet another Harry Potter marathon, I finished Peep. I used black beads for the eyes instead of French knots which I can't get the hang of. I have another carrot from the designer that I finished with stuffing and trim. This one though, I'm thinking of a flat ornament with large white ric rac sandwiched between the pieces of mat board that I use. This is finish #6.
And of course, I still have the startitis! Here is Witches Night Out by Brenda Gervais..
It looks slightly blurry and skies are somewhat overcast. On 36 ct Mello. I got so used to stitching on lower count fabrics that this one is dainty. I just have the kettle and the pumpkins to stitch. I stopped at this point because I've been looking at that kettle with some trepidation! There's a lot of kettle! Lol. I'll pick it back up once I get the big girl panties on!
That's it. I have two Easter-y/Spring-y freebies that I want to stitch and they shouldn't take long.
Take care all! Appreciate your stopping in!
