Well, needless to say, my rotation went right out the window this week. I don't know why I try one - it only works in the short term.
I received a beautiful Make a Wish from Jill this week. She stitched Sweetheart Needle Roll by Sweetheart Tree. It is so perfectly finished. Please check it out closer, the stitching is absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for such a delicate stitch Jill. I appreciate it.
I did stitch on my HAED. Although it looks like a black blob, it is actually two shades of navy.
I was so thrilled. I got to change colors. Wendy has asked to see the photo of the finished piece so I thought I would include it for those who are interested.
I stitched the gold heart on Danielle's Friendship Sampler RR and it is ready to go in the mail this week. This a fun RR as each heart only takes a day or so to stitch.
I finished the lovely Easter Squares that Melissa sent me into this pillow.
I tried to come up with something that would protect the bunny's silk chenille tail and also show off the work on Melissa's signature square. This is what I came up with. I hope Melissa likes what I did with her squares.
And, here is the progress on my Fairies in the Garden. I had managed a couple more of the flowers and when the mint green and flowers came together - I was in trouble. I was out by 1/2 stitch. I tried compensating for the error with no luck. It just kept compounding itself. I then took out the magnifier and searched for the mistake. Well, I found it. Way back in the second flower.
Now - what to do!!! I could not tear it all out. I thought about it for a few hours and then decided this was not going to work. I had struggled with seeing the holes in this fabric because of the color and realized I would only have the same problem again at some point. So, out came the scissors and this is what happened.
Yep, I cut it out!!!!
I am thinking of starting again (Start #4) on a pretty white opalescent 28 count fabric. What do you think? Maybe the fairies could use a little sparkle.
I am now working away on a set of Fair Squares and will try to work on my rotation a bit this week.
Have a great stitching week everyone!!!
