Once again) It’s been ages since my last update but I have been stitching!

Here’s what I’ve done:

-I’ve finished Saint George and the dragon and I’m very happy with itJ

-I’ve finished Home sweet home and made it into my very first pillow! A slightly asymmetrical pillow but a pillow nevertheless.
-I’ve started Home of a needleworker too by Little House needleworks. I really like it, at the end of the week I should get a few colours of Crescent colours that I’m still missing. The linen is 28 count hand-dyed jobelan "Sand castle", I first thought it might be a bit reddish but now I like it.

-I’ve started Winter welcome, Holly&Ivy sampler, Blueberries and Strawberries, all either by Little house needleworks or Country Cottage needleworks

(I know, a lot of new Wips but small ones and “almost finished”…)


-I’ve signed up for my very first Chatelaine!!!!! Holland Springtime landscape, I really like the look of it. And I’ve started it, the NPI silks should arrive this week so I can continue the first part. So far I’m lovin’ it!! I just hope the piece of fabric that I got is wide enough. The fabric is called Mercedes and is by Picture this, it’s the first time that I’m using their fabrics.

What else, what else….

I’ve also started a new cat apron, it’s for my aunt and compared with the first one I did, this is a much better work, much more carefully done, I would almost like to take the first one back from my boyfriends mother and re-stitch it...

Yesterday I stitched a bit of Mary Queen of Scots, I finished the hawk/eagle and the castle on the left corner and did the letter “M”.

Now my priorities are to finish the Cat apron, Mary QofS, Home of a needleworker too, continue my wonderful beautiful Chatelaine and then I want to start Bois le Duc by Long Dog Samplers and their new blue design, Words alone.
Then I've also promised to stitch some Christmas tree ornaments for a magazine that my aunt is editing. I haven't done any yet and I'll see her in June so I better hurry...

Hienoja töitä kaikki ja kuvat myös! Tuo Mary Queen of Scots on kyllä tosi kaunis, kiva nähdä sen edistymistä. Oi Chatelainet ovat niin ihania, minulla odottaa aloittamista se Provence Mandala tuolla, kunhan päätän mille kankaalle teen.
