Hi everyone, this is the first chance I have had to finally get a blog post up and announce the winner of the stitch along, sorry it has taken so long!
I thought I would first show my progress on the Mirabilia Santa, it grows really quickly and is a surprising easy stitch as there are large blocks of colour together, I am really enjoying stitching on this piece, I only have the face to complete and stitch the beads on and he will be finished. Yay!!!!
Before I show more photos below I would like to say thankyou to the people who joined in the stitch along and sent me photos of their lovely projects, I have inserted photos below together with the announcement of the winner of the pillow and charms.
Work in progress of 30 years in he making
I am almost too embarrassed to admit this, but I have started stitching again on a project that I started 30 years ago when I was expecting my son, I never got around to finishing this piece even though there were only a few more stitches to put in and some back stitching to do. I purchased the kit and ran out of some of the threads so it got put in a bag and was never seen again, until now!
I knew it was there, I never forgot about it and always knew I would get around to it one day, better late than never I suppose! Lol…..
It is a really lovely pattern and when it is finished I will get it framed and it can become a family heirloom. (Photos below)
I started stitching the white, I always save that until last, I have the face to complete and there are a few beads to stitch and then it will be complete.
The colours in this piece are so pretty and bright
Here it is, the 30 years work in progress!
A Noah’s Ark design, I just have a bit of back stitching to do and some small areas of stitching and then it will be finished.
It was as if it was yesterday when I started this, I remember it so clearly sat by the window, in my armchair, anticipating the arrival of our only child, of course we were not to know that at the time but looking back I sincerely regret only having one child. I love our son more than words can possibly say but if I had my time over again I would have had at least two children.
To all you young Mums out there, cherish the moment you hold your child in your arms because that moment soon passes in the blink of an eye.
Congratulations June, you are the winner of the stitch along, you will receive the pillow and the tin with all of the charms and stitch markers in the photo.
