X-Stitching Xmas 2012 – April Update


Hello, my fellow Xmas X-stitchers,
And welcome to the FOURTH monthly update!

Firstly, please let me apologise to my fellow challengers – this post should have been up last Saturday, but I’ve been so busy lately I didn’t get round to any of my regular blogging at all.

Anyway, let me make amends by sharing the pieces I’ve been working on a little. Progress is slow because I’ve had a commission to stitch (which is now finished, but I can’t show that yet as it’s wedding invitations for someone!) and am also working on other projects, fitting them all in between real life – LOL!

 

The first piece is the Winter Quaker Bookmark. I’m actually no further on with this than I was last month, as I was working on the aforementioned commission and projects.

The second piece is a new start. Another Quaker-style design, this is a small kit which I plan to make into an ornament for our Yule tree this year.

Don’t forget to check back the first Saturday of May (5th May) for another update post.

I hope all my fellow challengers will post a comment linking to their own progress so we can
cheer each other on.

Please link directly to your progress post, not to your blog homepage

Happy stitching!

Crazy January Challenge – Project #14

Crazy January Challenge
Project #14: Quaker Bookmark by Kincavel Krosses
Info: Ribband 14-count ecru bookmark; DMC 321 & 797

I’ve meant to stitch this bookmark ever since I first designed it, but it’s taken this challenge for me to get round to actually picking up a needle and making a start on it! I don’t think it will take very long to stitch, but I think it will look great when it’s finished.

Come back tomorrow night to see project #15:

Crazy January Challenge – Project #6

Crazy January Challenge
Project #6: Winter Quaker Bookmark by Kincavel Krosses
Info: White 14-count aida; Venus M018 floss

This is the second of my bookmark projects and I only managed to stitch the middle snowflake as I was working tonight, but it’s a start. I like the frostiness of the variegated floss on the white aida and I think it’s going to look rather pretty when it’s finished.

I’m actually considering finishing the wintery-looking bookmarks as hanging ornaments to display at Xmas, but I haven’t made any final decisions as yet…

Come back tomorrow night to see project #7:
