Holiday Stitching to Commence

At least, that’s what should be happening J. I’ve got my ornament for the year picked out and I will start it soon. In the meantime Celtic Spring has rather taken over.


I do love purple! It’s exciting how the swirls are beginning to take shape now. I’ll try to fit her into my holiday stitching now though, rather than the other way around J.

 
I have managed a bit more on the Winter Lady too. The metallic border is coming along and adding some nice sparkle to the piece.

A Finish and Some Progress

My cousin’s wedding was last weekend and a good time was had by all J. I finished the Lizzie Kate 3 Little Words piece I was making for the newlyweds and was able to find a frame in time too:


I really liked how it looked with the double mats but it was trickier than I expected to frame it- there wasn’t enough room for glass or a proper backing board! I got the back of the frame on finally but it was still rather tight haha!

I’ve also completed all the half stitching on the Winter Lady now too!
 
Yay! Just the metallic stitching and the back stitching left to go on her now. I’m aiming to try to complete the metallic cross stitching by the end of the year, but I’m not going to worry about getting her completely finished this year. If I only have backstitching left she can be my first finish of next year J.
