After my first finish for 2014, I picked up a WIP that has been around way too long. At least a few years. You may remember her; Angel of Grace? Well here is how she looks now:
I’m getting really close to a finish. She certainly is a challenge on that fabric. It is 28 ct Salmon and Gold Linen Banding. It is the most uneven fabric I have ever worked on. The pattern is Angel of Grace by Lorri Birmingham Designs. I am hoping to finish this by the end of the weekend. I just have her ruffle to finish and some gold stitching on the right of the dress, then outlining and some charms, buttons and beads. I am so happy this one is actually coming to a finish. It is a gift for someone special and I will by happy to finally have it crossed off of my WIP list.
And because I don’t have enough Mira stash, this is what I purchased on Saturday from Stitches N Things:
This month is my birthday, so I went on a birthday month shopping spree. Shown here is the lovely Biancabella and her bead pack and one of two Waterlilies needed. The other is on backorder. I love the colors in Biancabella. I am thinking of adding a snowflake in her hand instead of the apple. She is my favorite winter colors, so I think a snowflake will be perfect. Some day I will get to work on her. I also ordered a couple of patterns that were not in the shop yet.
So now, back to stitching on Angel of Grace. What WIP have you had in your stash for a very long time?
