A Stitchey weekend

I started two new stitchalongs this weekend, one with Goldie for Summer Spell by Just Nan. What a neat stitch this was, and so many different colours for a little design. Goldie and I both thought the little ladybird stitched over 1 thread was so cute.

Then last night I started another SAL, this time with Kath and we're both going to stitch Shepherd's Bush Jillian stocking on Sundays. I don't have a pic to share just yet but will do next Sunday. I'd forgotten how nice the pearl 5 threads are to stitch with and so quick on the 18 count floba. Its going to be interesting later on this evening as I'm going to be stitching on Karen's Quaker RR and its on 40 count, talk about go from one extreme to the other, lol.

You might remember back in early May I finished Titania? Well, I've just had her framed and here she is (pic taken before the glass went in)

I can't wait to see it in real life now, once again my friend Jan, has done a super job. This is the same frame that I chose for my Petal Fairy.

I thought I had uploaded my recent progress pic on Open Heart but can't seem to locate it right now, nevermind, I'll save it for another post tomorrow. I can report though that I made some great progress on it last week, several more are bands done.

Have a happy day friends, thanks for stopping by!

Titania looks gorgeous in that frame. I simply must stitch her one of these days! Congrats on finishing your Summer Spell - I had such a hard time photographing this one, but yours really shows off all the stitching. I love the ladybug too!

You're a braver girl than I, Katrina. I never combine 18ct stitching with anything else. But then, your eyes are much younger than mine! LOL
