Progress on White Nights

This week was the turn of White Nights on the rotation. In all truth I had been dreading it as I knew that I would have loads of Algerian Eyelets to do. Late on Friday night I finished what I had hoped to do this week. Not bad for only four evenings stitching, well that's what I think.


This is a close up of one of the corners. The picture is not wonderfully clear as the zoom on my camera is not able to cope.



Today finished my holiday stitching, which was started on the flight to Naples, and yes, I did get my metal needle through airport security without any fuss. As this is a Christmas gift, no pictures for now.

Next week on the rotation it should be the St Nicholas Tree Skirt, back to the festive stitching. However, I haven't done my biscornu for November yet, so the Pale Blue Santa will have to stay in the stash room for another week. Never fear, this project has not turned into a UFO, it will return at the start of December!

A few people commented on the bespoke frame for Simply Christmas. It was made by Poppy Kreations for this design. My not so local LNS, The Nimble Thimble, over 75 miles away, which specialises in American designs is able to get them. All of my Waxing Moon stuff has been framed in the bespoke frame suggested and it really sets them off.

White Nights looks amazing. I'm always impressed by people who stitch Chatelaines. There's just too many specialty stuff for my liking.

Now Algerian eyelets and me, well that's a horror story!!!

Sorry about you November biscornu I can't believe you haven't done it and poor Santa. You'll have to make it up to him you know ot else you may not be on his drop off list.
Happy stitching to you.
