My first finishes for 2010




I promised photos - and here they are: my blackwork sampler - which only took me 18months or more to finish....stitched on something like 28count scrap of evenweave in my stash - using DMC ecru and DMC metallic. I'm going to sew some calico to either edge so that the framer has something to grip - and get it matted and properly framed - it glitters too nicely to simply make a fabric wallhanging from it. - Sorry it looks a bit crooked at the moment....It has been lying crumpled at the bottom of my 'take my stitching to work in the hope that i'll stitch at lunchtime' bag.


Oh and something from my win - I stitched up this pre-made pillow - my first Christmas finish for 2010 - it was a quick stitch - only took a couple of days from go to whoa!


I've got the chart and the leftover floss (i think DMC) if anybody is interested for the pillow - you just need to supply your own fabric and beads (star bead for the tree and 3 little red beads for the gingerbread man) You know the routine.....leave a message and I'll draw a name next weekend! I might even find something else to add to the envelope - don't know yet....

Great finish, Bronny! The blackwork will look stunning when it's all framed. Very cute Christmas pillow!

Just wanted to comment on how very lovely your blackwork sampler is. But don't put me in the drawing ... I have more than enough stash of my own to stitch without getting greedy.
