Back with some finishes!

So, yet another two months since my last post, again for various reasons, but the good news is I've got my stitchy mojo back!

At the beginning of the school holidays we went on holiday to France for a week on the way out, by train, and at our first destination I stitched on The Sweetheart Tree's Halloween Quadrielle.  Our second destination was Paris so no stitching was done there.


This project came as a kit and was stitched on 28 ct lambswool linen with DMC floss. Here are a few pictures of it made up.




Before going on holiday I finished Just Nan's Lady Scarlet's Christmas. This was stitched on 28 ct raw linen with the recommended DMC floss.



Since being back I have stitched on Halloween Rules from Lizzie*Kate finishing Carve a Pumpkin.  As you can see form the photo Scare a Crow is not far from being finished too!


There are two weeks of the school holidays left so I am ditching the rotation until the start of September.  Hopefully, Halloween Rules will be finished by then.

Happy stitching!

Glad you have your mojo back.

Wow! You really made a lot of stitching progress & did some great finishing! I envy you just being able to get on the train & head off to Paris. Great thing about Europe ... just get on a train & travel at a whim : )

I love all the finishes (or almost-finishes) you've posted, but especially The Sweetheart Tree's Halloween Quadrielle - it is beautiful.

I loved the quadrielle. It is beautiful. You have given me an idea for my car. It is now over one year since i have the car, and it is still not got its ornament!!
