I just put the last stitches in this my last finish of 2020
It’s from Cross stitch with art on Etsy
The fabric is the October fabric club from Sparklies which actually a very pale blue and I used DMC 606 and 699
Earlier this year I bought a gently used chart off a Facebook selling site of a Harley after checking with my fella that he liked it and told him I’d stitch it for him next year.
The pattern is from Hookin’ to the beat
I’m one of her test beaders and when this one was posted I jumped at the chance to do it. I’ve also put in my claim to test next years version of it ready for the bump that’s on his way 🙂
I failed in my weekly update on these 🙁 but at least I’ve finally remembered to add the finished project!
Loved stitching these with a fiend and we have our next project planned but the kits are out of stock currently so until then we are doing ornaments from this years JCS ornament issue.
If your tempted to stitch these guys yourself, be quick as the kit is being discontinued in January
Another recent bead finish that I didn’t share!
This is as the post title says Winter Scene Christmas drop ornament and it’s from Threadabead
I’ve had the pattern for years and thought that while I’m in the mood to make ornaments I’d get it done
He knows I have the chart but not that the first few stitches have gone in. Lucky for me the hours he works will make it quite easy for me to stitch it in secret
A friend and I are having a SAL on Bothy Threads Slightly Dotty Snowmen each weekend.
Blogger has decided that no matter which way I upload the pics they have to be backwards!!
So this is after this last weekend
Weekend 2 (Sept 26/27) saw mine look like this
And after weekend one Sept 19/20
Not being a fan of Aida I switched to silver lurex Linda, the last piece in my stash 😢
Since finishing Persian Buttercup I’ve been working on my neglected Crimson Poppies.
I started these in 2008 and I have a feeling I’ve not worked on them since then!!
I’ve gone from this
The last few days have been hot here so I’ve not been stitching much but I just realised that another reason is that I’ve had enough of these for now so they are going away and I’m going to treat myself to a new start 😁
Fingers crossed it’s not another 12 years before I work on them again
