Good afternoon every one! I hope you've all had a lovely Friday and have got a pleasant weekend ahead :)
I'm making it my mission over the summer to make more time for craft and get a few things done. I counted my stitched-finished, but not finished-finished projects this morning. The magic number was 23!
(Only a few of the finished pieces I have lurking!)
I'm sure some of you will recognise some of the pieces above, I'm sure most of them have been featured on the blog at some point. I said to myself, it's high time I get these stitched pieces out on display. They've been hiding in a box for long enough! So, as I had a day off from work today, out came the scissors and the iron and I managed to tick three designs off my to-finish list :)
First up is Mississippi Riverboat by LHN. I think this might be my favourite finish of the day. The simple frame design fits the simple life of the characters. Really pleased with how this one turned out. I'm hoping to get it up on the wall soon.
The second piece made it up on the wall straight away! I know the pattern was from an old cross stitch magazine, either CrossStitcher or The World of Cross Stitching. I stitched up this one awhile ago and I smile every time I see it.
The final design fitted perfectly into a frame I picked up at a carboot sale last summer. Gingerbread Cottage by CCN is such a sweet little design. I've put this one away so it can be displayed at Christmas time. I hope to create more Christmas themed projects soon, so I can decorate my room accordingly :)
Coming up soon, pictures of the 5 projects I've got my needles in at the moment. Quite unusual for me to have so many on the go, but a couple were inherited from my sister and I couldn't wait to get started on them. I hope I have many more posts about finished items. My room is going to be full to the brim with my creations and I can't wait :D
Best wishes to all,
