Needlequest - 30 June 2014

I did it, I did it, I DID it!  I actually stitched on my feather piece!  Twice, in fact!  Here's the result - the bits down the right hand side.

I even quite enjoyed it and that really was a surprise.

Of course, it's not finished yet, but it is back in progress and I plan to put in two lengths/fronds most working sessions so that it'll move slowly, but surely, towards completion over the coming weeks and months.

My major priority over the next fortnight is the wedding ring cushion on which I stitched the first five leaves last night.  Look out for a post on that on Friday or Saturday, hopefully with quite a lot of stitching completed.  Handover is to be on Thursday 17th July and I'll have to run up a dummy cushion for the rehearsal on the 11th!

What about you fellow Needlequesters?  So far, I'm aware of only one joining in the 'line' challenge.  Leave any links today, if you can, (I'll search for others from the list just in case), and I'll do the round up etc tomorrow.=)

Here is my most recent post on my June Needlequest project - Kogin I chose this because as well as fitting the "line" topic, it is a traditional Japanese technique. It will probably be a long term project as I completed only a couple of inches this month.

I like your peacock feather, but I understand why the pillow has to be top priority right now!

It's good to see you stitching on your peacock feather again and look forward to seeing it's continuing progress but I do realise the ring cushion has yo have top priority just now.

Actually, I have started something that fits in with the "line" theme, but I haven't been able to write about it yet, so you won't hear of it until next month...
