In my continued participation in Needlework Days I have finished one project (thank you eBay for having such fab sellers!) and unearthed a few that I’ve not completed yet. I hope you enjoy!
“Red Rose”. Again using DMC threads. I’m sewing this for a friend. I temporarily forget who the designer of this pattern is, but I have many more to get started on and I adore the quality.
This “Spindleberry Fairy” is a project that I completely forgot about – it’s probably been hanging in my sewing cupboard for at least two years! This is another 18-count DMC project; I grew up being read the Flower Fairy poems and have loved them ever since!
This would be the finished version of the TARDIS pattern. It is utterly tiny; I cannot believe that I can sew text so small! It says “If this TARDIS is a rockin’ don’t come a knockin’”, but even macro wasn’t able to pick that up properly. Anyway, it’s completed and Minibreak Mummy could easily adapt this very small project into a bookmark!
More on my current main project – the Lanarte ballerina. This is a huge project and I don’t expect her to be recognisable any time soon, even though I plug away at her daily!
Last, but not least, Queen Nefertiti. She’s a DMC thread project on 16-count aida and I havent actually worked on her for a long time. I love the colours, but you will also notice much usage of The Metallic Thread Of Doom! It took me months just to get this far, but now that I’ve taken it out of my sewing cupboard and had a look I’m itching to get on with it again!
What’s everybody else up to?
