I have at last got batteries for my camera – so have managed to take pictures of my latest bits and pieces. I did not realise I had so much on the go until I took these photos! Whoops.
First up is Polstitches 15 side biscornu. I have not stuck to the same colour thread or fabric, but using up some blue evenweave which I had in my stash and some DMC variegated as well. I have dug out some beads to go on this, but as of yet not fixed them on. I need to stitch 15 blocks in total, these are the first 4 and a 1/2. So a few more to go yet.
The next picture is of another biscornu in progress. This is a canvaswork one though but Sue Hawkins and is worked in Perle thread, two variegated colours. This comes from Stitch magazine Aug/Sep 2009.
Going on from the biscornu theme – Sue Hawkins in the latest Stitch Magazine has a 15 side version out, again done on canvas using Oliver Twist threads, but I am going to adapt it to use perle threads.
This next bit of stitching was inspired by the material that I bought last year. It will show a knickers and bra set, a corset (not yet stitched) and a petticoat or nightie depending on your outlook! Once finished I am going to make this into a small Lavender Bag, as I just think it is very girly!
Well done if you have made it this far and not given up reading. Next is Waxing Moon Summer, part of their Simply Seasonal Series. I have Winter already made up as a cushion and Spring is currently waiting to be made up into a pinkeep just for an alternative finish. In the meantime here is Summer, hopefully more will get done shortly as I had run out of the green for the leaves and had to purchase some more.
And finally, we have a Country Companions. I love these designs and have stitched many of them. I am not too keen on the latest ones, as since moving to Anchor from DMC they have kind of softened them. This is a Christmas picture, and out of all the above is the one that I have hardly touched in the last 3 months plus.
So there you have all my WIPs. Typing this I know I have more stuff ‘on the go’ but that is mainly stuff that is finished and needs to be made up. I have got quite a few canvaswork bookmarkers to finish off, but I think I will leave that for another day and another post.
