As this blog is supposed to be about my stitching projects I thought I'd start with the ones I have completed so far, that is since 1 January 2009.
First to be completed was the 'Cat Lovers' biscornu from The Sweetheart Tree. My mum has always given me a little sewing project on Christmas day and this was the one for 2008. I had previously done the matching scissor fob. The chart was again a gift from my mum to cheer me up after the death, in early December, of one of my cats.
As originally charted the cats did not have whiskers so I added them using the scissor fob chart as a guide.
The February picture of the Mill Hill 2003 calendar series took a week to complete. This picture does not reflect how much the beads and the metallic ribbon make it sparkle.
This little treasure took just a few evenings. Barnabee's Bride from Just Nan. A cross stitch scissor fob fits inside the body of a jeweled bee which has a treasure inside it. In the stash I also have the matching biscornu 'When Barnabee met Bella' . The final photo for this post shows the needle roll inside the bee!
