It has been a very productive month for me this last month! I got the job I went for - yay!!! so I am going to be a busy bee as I have about eight years of not working to catch up on. I think with this realisation, I have got super busy with my needle to try and get my wips down whilst I can. I have so many charts that I have kitted up ready to stitch and want to stitch and if I don't get going on them now then I fear I will never get a chance to do them.
First up, I finished my Sampler au Bouquets by Jardin de Prive. Oooooh I loved working on this one right through to the last stitch. It was such a pleasure and joy. A simple colour palette which truly worked on the Vintage Country mocha linen I used. All the motifs were nice to stitch and I loved the little bunnies and birds and flowers. It was quite difficult to photograph in its entirety so have chunked it up into smaller pictures as well:
My next WIP to pull out to work on is CHS Helen Bell's Multiplication Sampler. I am using Silkweaver's Dark Tan 32 count fabric and Victorian Motto Threads in Heathers. Speeding along quite nicely with this one I think although I am hoping I am counting correctly for the backstitch grid as it is quite difficult to see.
So I think that's great progress for the WIPocalypse if I may say so myself!
So that's me. Hoping to find some peace today to stitch up an exchange and think about how to finish it :-S. Thanks for reading and popping in.
