Firstly the Heirloom Wedding Sampler. I had left it with all the Kloster bock set up for the Hardanger. So armed with 'Basics and Beyond' and 'Fundamentals Made Fancy' by Janice Love I got going on the Woven Bars, Doves Eyes and Picots followed by Divided Wrapped Bars and a Curled V in a Fan.
As you can see I went on to do some partial and full Greek Crosses.
This section is now finished apart from adding three tear drop shaped beads. In total, this was two days of stitching. This weekend I was able to make a start on the final section, the floral heart at the top of the design. This week is a free week on the rotation so I intend to do more work on this, starting with the remaining bullion knot rose.
In spare moments, and for a change, I managed to get a few more stitches in to Joy to the World.
So last week on the rotation it was Halloween week. Whilst in Yorkshire for a few days I was able to stitch the Happy Pumpkin Scissor Fob from Shepherd's Bush.
I wasn't too happy with the finishing of this, mainly the ribbon edging and how it was done, and I won't be doing any more of those unless I can find a tutorial somewhere that gives better instructions. So that's my half term round up. I hope you all had a productive stitching week.
