Stitching Update!

So I've been bad about posting pictures. I framed a couple of pieces and stitched another.

First up! My pride and Joy! Fleur des Anges (modeled by Magic the cat) stitched on 32 ct antique white linen 2 over 2 in some places, 1 over 2 in others. I used my own fiber choice (Gloriana and Soie Cristale). Took me months to stitch this...I think its my biggest BAP to date.



I think I did a pretty good job on the framing.

Next is Joe's Valentines Day Present. I found the frame last year and then went and found something to stitch for it. I think it came out wonderful. The design is a freebie by Chocolate Cat, the fiber is In the Reds by Thread Gatherer, and the linen was something I had lying around in my stash for what seems forever. It is however 32 ct and its stitched one over one. This one took less than a week to stitch up.




Lastly, I got bored of working on my "home" project, so I pulled something out of my stash and worked on it. Took less than 2 weeks to finish. Its Pushing up Daisies by Raise the Roof designs, using the called for overdyed fibers (mix of GAST and WDW) on a piece of light blue Monaco I had in my stash (awful fabric, I'll never buy it again), and the buttons are by Just Another Button Co. Its stitched 2 over 2 on 28 ct. I think its both morbid and adorable. Its dedicated to all the childhood pets we've all buried in the back yard.




Hopefully there will be more soon.

HA!
