Here is my Beatrix Potter January progress. I am using Victorian Mottos threads in Antique Wine set on Sassy's Tan Marble Jobelan. It is so nice to work on. I am loving the blends of the colour and they go so well together. Some people have asked if I have a plan for doing the colours but I don't really. I am just ad-libbing and seeing how it comes out. I am not going to get over stressed with this piece.
My two recent exchanges have arrived I have been told by the recipients. Mamajoan was my recipient for the Winter House sbebb exchange and this is what I made her:
It is taken from the Just Cross Stitch Christmas ornie mag from last year and the design is a PS one. It was a joy to stitch and finish into this miniature pinkeep.
I have also heard from Su that she has got my Blackbird Design sbebb exchange. This exchange was cancelled but I had already started it and was prepared to send it anyway and Su really likes it I believe. I stitched it on some special fabric that Stephanie gave me from Silkweaver and used Cresent Colour threads and antique glass beads to edge it.
Speaking of Christmas ornies... I got this through today and intend to use it for the Christmas ornament challenge blog. I have bought some Holly green coloured felt and am awaiting some Fiskars pinking Shears so I can finish them just like the picture:
So guess what I'll be working on this weekend?
Have a good weekend to all my readers and commenters. I love hearing from you and finding new blogs to visit. xx
