One Stitch At A Time

I've been working hard on my Noah's Ark project lately, finally I can see some actual progress. The Supertwist thread used for the rainbow has really been a pain challenge to work with but perseverance with lots of encouragement from Friendly Stitchers has had me plodding along.  Not long to go now before I'm on the last 3 pages at the bottom....


Don't faint either but I've finally finished my Purple Flower project. Sat down yesterday with DH who had the day off work and put the last 2 petals together.

Stitches used in this are :-

Up and Down Buttonhole
Chain
Bullion Knots
Running
French Knots
Couching
Basque
Pistil
Sheaf
Pekinese

A quilt square as well. The centre piece was part of my TAST challenge and I just quilted round it. (seriously must start putting these together soon!)

I finally managed to complete part 3 of Around the World in 80 Stitches by Papillion Creations as well...here she is

And I couldn't resist putting a photo on that DH took last month. We all went on the Bluebell Wood Wellie Walk at Clumber Park (Bluebell Wood is a children's hospice near to us) and Luke thought meeting the squirrel who's the mascot was fantastic. He just couldn't stop laughing at her and DH managed to capture it.
