Photos of my Weekend Stitching









I promised photos....and here they are....
Firstly - detail of Papillion part 11 - finished on Saturday:

Also shown are the 4 seasons samplers all finished - still no idea how they will be 'finished'


Sunday I was busy and so pleased - here is the finished sampler - looks on a wonky angle because it was on the floor near the window for light..:







Here are 2 of my next projects: Both from the same JCS 2008 Ornie preview issue: Poppies and Memorial. Poppies I've started on 25ct natural fabric (starts with an 'F' I'm sure....Floban? - can't remember have not the fabric detail with me) Memorial looks like I'm going to tax myself and stitch on some 34count hand dyed Shanghai Linen - Bush Morning from Stitches & Spice. It's a soft eucalpyt green, but certainly one for stitching ONLY during the day. I'm not under a time constraint for this one either....


And to finish off the show.... here is my hyacinth bulb reappearing for this year....the other bulb is a mystery and it's now starting to shoot.... This is also a Work in Progress...photos to follow each week...

Beautiful stitching. And your new projects are lovely. Especially the poppies piece.
Hmmmmmmmm. I have never seen a hyacinth bloom twice in one year. I'll be watching this WIP. :)
