Holiday finishes!

The school holidays are over so it was back to work today.  During the second week of the holiday I was able to a lot of stitching, so here we go with the progress pics.

I decided to change the order of the rotation.  The last time Just Nan's Lady Scarlet's Journey was on the rotation very little got done as I was stitching it during a school week, so to avoid the same thing happening again I worked on this last week, finishing Part 3 and making good progress on Part 2.

I was also able to finish The Drawn Thread's Have a Heart.

This chart came kitted up from The Nimble Thimble and was stitched on 30 ct Dower Quality Legacy Linen, Custard Cream with the recommended NPI floss.  I did make a modification and that was not to add the phrase 'Have a heart' to the border but to continue with the heart one.

A fun finish was the cover kit from the latest edition of World of Cross Stitch.  Called Always Time for Tea I changed the fabric to Aida band and added a tassel with the remaining floss.

Here is a close up.

So on the rotation this week is something from The Drawn Thread. I still need to sort out the fabric and floss for this one, so I'm off to do this now.

Happy stitching!

It is always fun to see your finishes. And then to see what new project you have started. I love the "Always time for Tea". The Drawn Thread's Have a Heart is very pretty. You do beautiful work.

'Always Time for Tea' it.

DT finish looks so delicate beautifully with envy yet again.

Waiting to see what appears out of your stash next.

Hope Bella's settling in OK

Great stitching. I like the aida band you've chosen for the tea time design. Might steal that idea!

I love that you've used the remaining floss to make a tassel, genius idea!
Best wishes.
