Bank Holiday Stitching

I'm so pleased with the stitching I managed to do over the bank holiday weekend.   I have also kitted up another ornament so will stitch that this week as well as a bit more on my Mirabilia Siren and the Shipwreck.

Here is a photo of my Siren so far.

I cannot wait to finish her, she will look lovely on the wall with the two other Mirabilia mermaids I have finished.  They are The Mermaid Queen and Mermaid of the Pearls.

Happy stitching

Snow Place Like home

Not a lot of stitching lately,  I've been repainting our front room.  All decorated now and furniture back in place so I can get back to normal now.

I did stitch one of the Country Cottage Needleworks Snow Place Like Home charts, Snow Place 1.

I also stitched a bit more on my Siren and the Shipwreck

I'm going to spend the bank holiday working on the Siren, I'll post an update next week.  It will be nice to be able to spend some time just stitching.

Happy stitching

ABC and a Siren

I have a small finish,   Little  House  Needleworks  ABC sampler ornament. 

This was a lovely quick stitch and I will make it into a pillow ornament.   I like the idea of putting them all into a bowl or something similar to display  them.

I have also started The Siren and the Shipwreck,  thus will be my main stitch with smaller ornaments along side it.

Here us the start of my  mermaid.

I was supposed to be going to Wildwood today with my granddaughter but it is tipping it down,   the rain has not stopped all morning.  Looks like we will have to go next week.  The weather is more like late autumn no sign of summer here at the moment.

Happy stitching

She's finished...

I have finally finished Mirabilia's Winter Queen.  I cannot believe I put her aside for so many years.  I have the Spring, Summer and Autumn ones as well to do but they will have to wait.

She is more beautiful in real life then she looks in the photo.  The beads took forever but so worth the effort.

Not sure if I'm going to start Mirabilia's Siren and the Shipwreck or Snow Queen next.  They are both calling me to start them.

Happy stitching
