My First Finish For 2015!

I did it!  I finally finished Autumn Snowman on January 19.  Here he is:

Autumn Snowman finishI still have to turn him into a bellpull, but for now, the stitching is finished and I am one happy camper!  The other night I picked up this which I had started in December for hubby.  I had only put a couple of stitches in until this week:

Nimue FairyIt is Fairy Dust by Nimue and hubby loved it when he saw it in a Local needlework shop.  I am stitching it on a Silkweaver Solo fabric, in 16ct Aida.  It shouldn’t take me too long to stitch, but I am still keeping up with the PR SAL and section 8 arrived in my email box yesterday.  I will show progress on that when I am finished stitching.  Come back tomorrow to see all of my Birthday mail that arrived in the last few days.  Lots of fun things!

    1. Thank you, Good Woman. I did visit your blog and LOVE the stitch that you did post and the story behind it. Congratulations on your new blog and I look forward to visiting.


  1. Thank you so much. Right now I am working on a project for my daughter’s birthday. It’s smaller with the saying “I love you more” which I designed myself. I needed to regroup a little after the big project. And now that I am blogging I am not finding much time to stitch–I really have to find the right balance.


    1. Thanks Fawn. Yes, it does have 2 different whites. I’m ok with it. I will give him a bath before I finish him as I tend to stitch tight and he is a bit bumpy. Maybe it will help give the white a more even tone. If not, I’m ok with it.


  2. Fawn, I usually don’t wash before framing unless there is a spot. But in this case, he is really bumpy because I tend to stitch tight and I did leave him on the scroll rods a bit long 😉 I am hoping to reshape him before I get to sewing on him to turn him into a bell pull. We shall see how it turns out. I’m not ready for that part yet, so I will post when I get it done.
