All Stitched Up....

Well, I didn't get the 'Welcome' sign anything like finished last week, but I have got all the sewing up that I wanted to do done. Here are the two Orange Blossom pieces:


I still have to put s few stitches in the Lilac Time needlecase as the tassel cord is a bit loose and doesn't look very good at the mo. Will post that one tomorrow when it's finally done and photographed.

I've got 'elco' and about half of the 'W' done on the sign as well as the leaf and stem done, so really not much progress. It's very hard work and I think I might have bitten off a bigger chunk than I can chew, but I seem to have the habit of wanting to shoot for the stars with a kid's catapult!=( Let's hope somewhere local does last minute framing..... Planning on working on this one a lot today and getting the 'W' finished and the back of the silk shading on the lily broken.

Speaking of which: Lili, I don't design all my pieces, just a few here and there. I've done about 100 pieces of needlework since I started stitching and I think I actually designed about 10 of them, most of which are hardanger cards anyway! The only CS piece I designed was really only heavy adaptation of a freebie 'L' and adding to it. Don't be too impressed!!!=)

I am not able to do so, so I have a right to be impressed! Let me be impressed! I want to be impressed! Just kidding... Your lovely work is impressive, sorry Elisabeth... Still, I dare comment, so it's OK I guess?
Lots of hugs!

Your Orange Blossom pieces are simply charming! You'll get Welcome done, just a little at a time. :D

the orange blossom set is quite lovely. Very springy, which is still needed at the moment.
