Stitching Away..

After last years Purple Flower project I decided on another flower project but this time slightly different, it's a button flower project. This uses one of my most hated stitches "Lazy Daisy", now I know that they're easy to do but I really really don't like them. I like symmetrical designs and this stitch rarely looks even when more than 1 is used...BUT this year I'm going to try and not do as much symmetrical stuff on the embroidery side and just let my needle play whenever the mood takes me.

FINALLY finished part 6 of my Around the World, taking part in WIP Wednesdays with Friendly Stitchers so decided that I need to catch up on ATW.

Here's my HAED after a couple of weeks of stitching at least 2hrs on 4 evenings a week....

Finally I managed to put in a few stitches on my Mary Wigham SAL on the Sunday Stitch In with The Stitch Specialists, not many as we spent a lot of the day out in the snow..

Finally here's DS2's photo from Thursday night

New Start for a new year

A couple of the projects I've been working on since New Years

Cruising The Information Highway by Randal Spangler (HAED)
Stitched 1 over 1 on 25ct

Around the World in 80 Stitches - parts 1-5
(Papillion Creations)

Mary Wigham SAL

The last 2 projects I work mainly in-hand and I don't like ironing my work until it's all completed and ready to be framed, hence the creases.  Working on an exchange piece now which I'm really enjoying.

Happy stitching, Jo x
