After a pretty rainy New England spring week, I made some progress on my Victorian Ladies piece for my friend's birthday, which is coming up in about 2 weeks. Hopefully, it will be finished sometime today, and then I can choose a nice complimentary frame for it.
This was a design from a Gift of Stitching issue, which provided only the printed instructions, without an actually finished piece to view. The piece looks quite different from the colored, charted instructions.
There were very few backstitching instructions except for the words, stems and parasol handles. So I am having to decide the other areas that really need some more backstitching, so that the designs will "pop" out, if you know what I mean. I hope that it all looks nice when it is finished. We'll see!
I'm already thinking of my next piece to start stitching....Thinking about Jenny Bean's "Humble Servant Sampler", which has been in my stitching stash for a few months, calling out to me...."Stitch Me Next"!
Well, my "Stitching Nest" is calling me for some nice cozy stitching time and of course, a nice cup of tea.....what else?
Wishing all of my dear friends a very happy, hopefully restful weekend, which, hopefully, will include some special time just for you!
