WIP Wednesday 25 January 2017


Sorry about missing last week, but I hadn't done any needlework at all, not one X, one purl or one knit plus I was feeling miserable.. However, it's a better day today.

Last post, I had just finished knitting the doll's booties


And here she is in her finery.



She still needs her hat which I hope to do this week.

Retirement is beaded! Gone from here


to here.


Neither picture shows the colour properly - its DMC equivalent is 501. I'm hoping to talk my craft partner Cynthia into helping me make a wall hanging out of it and get it to the recipient ASAP.

I belong to a Christmas Ornament SAL hosted by the lovely Kaye at Kitten Stitching (who, by the way, is having a giveaway at the moment) and I finished my January design.


This is from Dragon Dreams' "12 Dragonlets of 2012", 2 over 2 on 28 count fabric from Silkweavers. The colour is good in this picture, but the gold sparkle in the fabric is not showing up well. If you're interested in checking out the whole set, they are on Facebook page Dragon Dreams Inc.

Lovely finishes there Bea, I completely forgot about the dragonlets. Must add them to my to do list as I've stitched a fair few dragon dreams. You've done a fab job on yours.

Glad you are feeling better! Congratulations on the finishes...the dolly set is so sweet!

I have all those little dragons finished, and I even bought a wreath for them this year, but I need to turn them into ornaments!
