Three Finishes

In the past week I've had a few finishes - I decided to get some smaller projects done so have put my bigger wips aside for a bit. Sorry the photos are not very clear today, its been raining and still very grey looking outside.

This is Home Sweet Home by Country Cottage Needleworks, stitched on 28ct cream lugana. I think I'm going to finish this into some sort of zippered bag.




Next up is the baby sampler I've had on the go for a few weeks now: Sweet Sweet Baby by Sam Sarah Design Studio, stitched on 32ct cream lugana. I'll have my friend Jan frame this for me once I've attached a few buttons.


and lastly, Royal Blossoms by Just Nan. This is a freebie pattern with purchase of the bee charm. Stitched on 32ct natural belfast. Perfect shape to be made into a pin keep.


Look where I found Miss Poppy on Sunday morning, tucked up on one of my basket of stitched pieces that sits next to my printer :)

Hi Katrina --

You've really been busy stitching lately - wow, so many beautiful finishes! A friend of mine is having a baby soon - I sure like your stitched "Sweet Sweet Babe!"

Aussie Stitcher said...

Poppy looks very cozy. Your finishes are beautiful

*marci* said...

Love all your finishes... I really must pick up a needle and thread sometime soon. Now that autumn is here and winter will soon be settling in, I'll probably do so.

Love your black cat too - mine does the same thing, only on top of my beads!
