This week seems to be the week of returns, returning to regular blogging on projects, reading and now stitching.
It has been many years from I had cross stitch out and having recently come across a tub of projects intended to be worked on, I decided now might be the time to get working some more on these.
I went through the various projects and have selected two to work on.
The first project I’m working on are the Cottage of the Month series from Country Cottage Needleworks. I’m using 40ct linen and I’m making a large sampler of all the cottages on the one piece of linen. To ensure the project wouldn’t be too big I went down to a 40ct linen. Progress on this is happening but it’s slow as I had quite forgotten how small 40ct linen is but I do love the fine needlework effect I am achieving.
The second project I’m working on at the moment is Rosey by Little House Needleworks. This project is easier on the eyes as it is being worked on 30ct Cocoa linen. It took some time to find the threads as for some strange reason they were put in a different place to the project itself. All has been found now and I’m hoping to press on with this particular project ad it’s a little over half finished.
In the tub of projects in a separate folder I came across this finished piece. It just needs to be pressed and framed. I can’t remember the name of the piece, I’ve been calling it Beds of Roses from I discovered it. I can’t recall what count linen it’s on either. I do think I used my Belle Soie silk threads on this piece, but it was a happy discovery as I had quiet forgot about it and it is a lovely piece.
That is where this weeks projects are at, until next week.
