A winter finish and a spring start was the title I chose for my post last Monday. What post last Monday? Last Monday was half term week and I spent it away from home, so I decided to post from the iPad. Having downloaded the app, composed the post, I then tried to add the photos and that is where it all went wrong, so after a couple of attempts I gave up!
My winter finish was the Winter Arbor from the Drawn Thread.
This project came as a kit and was stitched on 32ct 'Smokey Pearl' Belfast Linen and was stitched with NPI silk.
My spring start, which became a finish, was Just Nan's Lady Scarlet's Scissor Roll.
Here are a few close ups.
This was stitched with the recommended floss (DMC) on 32ct 'Limestone' Belfast Linen. I'm hoping to make it into the scissor roll at the weekend.
As we did a lot of travelling over half term I was able to make more progress on Hand Wash Only.
This week it's back to the tree skirt, back stitching, beading and couching!
