So I finally had one those weekends I’ve been waiting for & finished the card I mentioned in my last post. I’ve had a 3 day weekend because of how my shifts fall & used my Saturday well 🙂 Sunday was fairly productive & Today, not so much. But that’s ok, I got this done & that’s all I wanted from this weekend 🙂
Below is a picture of the completed project before I added the back stitch. I decided to show a photo before & after, more so I can compare how it looks. I don’t enjoy the back stitch point in any design but absolutely love the effect it has once it’s done! I always think that without back stitch a project never looks complete…. don’t get me wrong, I would love it if it wasn’t essential.
Here is a picture of the finished piece 🙂 🙂 I’m really happy with it & love the colours 🙂
Finally, Below I have put on a picture of the chart book I used for this project, as I said in my previous post I need to find a way to keep a record of who designed what I’m stitching. The Design above is by Lesley Teare. I LOVE this chart book that came free with a cross stitch magazine & usually use them well! I have used it a few times & still have a few more I want to use. If you come across this on eBay, I would recommend buying it!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I look forward to seeing everyones WIP posts on Wednesday. I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be stitching next… I’ll probably go back to something I haven’t finished. I go on Holiday to Sunny Morocco on Thursday for 2 weeks so I don’t want to start anything new!
I want to take some stitching away with me, Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how to go about doing this? I wish we could stitch on the plane but Its not possible without scissors and a needle 😦
Anyway, I hope to post on Wednesday before I go away & at least put some ‘Throwback Thursday’ posts in place as I have plenty of work to share with you…. 🙂
I hope you all have a good week!
