WIP Wednesday


Goodness Wednesdays roll around quickly! Not a huge amount of stitching done even though I was involved in a stitching marathon this weekend. Just feeling "Blah". However, here's what I did manage -

Pack of Cards on the 21st:


and today.


Back to the border, right hand side.

Wedding Sampler on the 21st:


and today - close up of the section worked on. And yes, that really is how old this UFO is!


All the cross stitches and half cross stitches are done - back stitch, long stitch, satin stitch, Lazy Daisy, Elongated Smyrna, French knots and beads still to come. All the capital letters have vines and leaves twined through them - that will be my focus next so all the letters will be completely finished.

In January I decided that this would be the year to focus on completing some WIPs, but I forgot I had signed up for a "New Year, New Start" challenge. This week I did just enough to complete the challenge - here's what I chose.


This will get a little more attention in February as part of a "Stitch An Animal" challenge, but it will definitely take a back burner to my older WIPs.

You've accomplished quite a lot! I keep thinking the Wedding sampler is done but there are still more stitches to add in! It will be well worth it in the end though :D
