98% happy dance

Apart from the birth info Elliot’s birth sampler is finished.
It could be a few days before that’s added as Mel is currently in hospital 😢 she has a bad infection in her right wrist and is going to theatre in the morning to have it cleaned out so has more important things on her mind than deciding what info she wants!

It’s not like I don’t have other projects to do in the mean time 😁

Baby Ark Sampler
Bothy threads
Fabric changed to a oops piece from Sparklies
Started March 12, finished March 30 has to be one of my fastest ever

Second finish for the month

After finishing Beatrix I picked up Poppy once more and finished her after less than a week.
She was my Jan 1st last year and I put her down quite quickly to start something else, went back to her in December and put her down again to start Beatrix on Jan 1st this year.

She’s on 32 count opal Champagne from Sparklies ( the website isn’t working right now so no link this time) and I used the called for DMC and Krenick but I used beads from my stash 

I have another post to do that’s long overdue now so I’ll go and write that now and get it scheduled for tomorrow

Ta da

Beatrix is finished :)

The last stitch went in late last night.

I stitched her on 36 count strawflower from lakeside linens and used a silk from now Paint box threads as my main colour and for the highlights I used a needlepoint silk

Thread bear finish

I realised recently that although I finished this last year I never posted the finished article 🙁 and in the spirit of trying to post more I thought I’d fix that
