Stitching. . .

Again!  You, my friends and clients, with all of your lovely stitching passing through my studio, have inspired me to pick up needle and thread.

Thank you for that and a sincere thank you to all that entrusted me with finishing their work.  The plan is...finish in the morning and stitch for myself in the evening.  Please remind me of that if you see no stitching here on occasion.

Yes, you're seeing correctly...this piece "Eleanor Rigby" by Blackbird Designs was started in 2014 and just today finished.  I hope never to take that long again.  Threads get lost, patterns misplaced and just pure chaos arises.


What are you stitching in 2016?

Lovely finish, Joy! At the moment, I am working on my January 1st start, One Loving Heart by Misty Hill Studio. There are many ornaments on my list for 2016. I love stitching and gifting ornaments and smalls.

Out of all the tribute to the Beetles...this one was my favorite and the Strawberry Fields one too :)
Perfectly lovely!

Love it!! I got discouraged by the usual overdyed floss issue with Yellow Submarine -- the colors just don't look good on my version. Which is so frustrating! Hate overdyed floss. Tell those nice BBD ladies that for me. :D Beautiful finish!

What a pretty finish, Joy! I am so bad about finishing older projects--that is why I tend to finish as I go as I often don't get back to the old WIPs stuck in drawers!!
