A Windy Day

As I have completed my sewing project at Mum and Dad’s, I have the pleasure of starting a new one! I went round yesterday with this one to start:

This is another All Our Yesterdays piece – created by DMC, the same as Playing on the Swing. As you can tell my lighting wasn’t great, which made sorting the threads out hard…it ended up coming down to a process of elimination! I often find sorting threads out hard, what they class as “dark peach” I would call red! Never mind, got the floss sorted so was ready to go:

However, it took so long to sort the threads out, I didn’t get much done:

At least it has been started…! If you can’t tell, that is the beginning of the sea. This looks like it will be another fun one to create. Hopefully I’ll get more done when I am round there later this week.

The Sky is Complete!

I have spent some more time on the Girl, and now the sky is complete and the tree has grown some more!

I am loving stitching this, can’t wait until it is finished, ready for Christmas!

The Girl

I haven’t stitched this for a long time, but last night the girl in the red coat came out again. This is how far I got last night:

I have decided to bring this home so it is finished in time for Christmas. I have been stitching tonight in front of a film, and I am now here:

The top of this is harder than the bottom, several different shades of brown and green but I am enjoying it :-)

Playing on the Swing

I have been working on the girl again, and finally learned the name of the piece:

Playing on the Swing

I have finished the bottom half of the piece, and I cannot believe the difference back stitch makes, it has made this picture come alive! I cannot wait to get this finished, although I’m sure I will miss it:

A Day of Stitching

On Friday I spent the day with at my parents watching the cricket and sewing. Below are progress pictures taken throughout the day. As you can see, I’m not very fast at sewing.

This is where I left it:

The Girl Again

I have done some more stitching on The Girl. As you can see the tree is starting to grow. This is still a delight to sew.

The Girl in the Red Coat

I have been at my parent’s, which means I have done more on the girl. I am really enjoying sewing her. She is finished, except for the outline so I’ll be working on the rest of the picture – the tree and swing. I think this is looking good:

A Collection of Work

I have framed the anniversary sampler:

(Yes that is me with my finished piece!)

I have spent some time at my parents recently so I have been working on my piece there:

At home I started a new section on The Olde World Map. The first corner is not finished but  I fancied a change:
