The stitchy bug that is! I seem to have become re-obsessed with stitching, though it could be a bit of a distraction to keep me away from my studies ;o)
I've got a couple of happy dances to share, so this post is a little photo heavy. The first is Forest Goddess, who I finished early in the new year:
I love her bling! She's stitched on Silkweaver's Tranquility Belfast linen with skin stitched over 1.
My other happy dance is a framing happy dance. This is the first project in all my 20 years of cross stitching that I've ever had framed for myself - all other framed finishes have been gifts for others, so I am pleased to share photos of framed Midnight Hunting with you:
The frame looks grey, but is brushed with metallic silver and goes well with the silver inner mount inbetween the two blue mounts. I thought my dragon was handsome anyway and now he looks magnificent! ;o)
I've even had a new start and bought the chart & Crescent Colours for Nora Corbett's Letter S with some Christmas money. As Nora's chart says that S is for Samantha, I just couldn't resist!
This was taken a couple of weeks ago and I've done a bit more since then. The fabric is an old PTP colour - Fantasia on Belfast linen.
I've not done as much stitching as I'd like recently due to uni work - during Jan, Feb and March there seems to be around six things I have to work on and submit. I like to try and relax in the evening with a little stitching though, even if I only get a dozen or so stitches in. Today I need to work on my assignment on Performance Management, for which I did lots of research yesterday and need to get typing today. I'd best get on with it now, so I can get to do some stitching later!
