#42 last WIP post of 2015

Hello! 

I hope this post finds you all well… So Christmas is done & dusted already. How on earth did that happen? 

I had 4 whole days off over Christmas which were lovely and quiet which is just what the doctor ordered.With my time off I wanted to finish an existing WIP rather than starting a new one. It took so much self control not to start something new!! (A crafters ongoing battle I know…) Here’s what I got done:

  
I spent Christmas finishing the box at the bottom ready for the baby name, date of birth & weight. I also completed the border & finished the back stitch. This is pretty much done now whilst I wait for my friend to pop! Once baby is born I’ll add in the details & brave the French knots. After so much back stitching I couldn’t face them just yet. I need to psych myself up haha! Is it just me that has a love/hate relationship with French knots??!! 

I’m really happy with how it’s turned out & get an awesome feeling of accomplishment when I admire my work… Finishing something so nice really motivates me to stitch more… It certainly keeps my stitchy bug glowing πŸ‘πŸ»

Once I was done with this (finished by the Sunday) I thought it would be good to stitch something from a new book I purchased a little while ago. (Subversive Cross stitch- 50 clever designs for your sassy side- by Julie Jackson) see post #36

Here’s a sneak peak…

  
It’s stitched on fancy hand dyed Evenweave fabric by.Chromatic Alchemy The picture doesn’t do it justice… It’s all sparkly. ☺️ I’d recommend using this site for colourful fabrics. πŸ’™

I have now finished the wording on this piece & just have the border to do. But I’ll share a picture next week. It did feel odd stitching a swear word… The little girl in me or maybe it’s just the adult was slightly disapproving that I was stitching ‘I fucking love you’ to frame in my house ha. Heyho, we all have different tastes as it seems appropriate for me & my partner as it’s something we shout at each other frequently πŸ˜‹
How have you all been getting on over Christmas? Stitched much or been too full to move? Hehe

If I don’t post before, I wish you all a healthy & happy new year!! πŸ’™

  1. Happy New Year! And Congrats on the finish! The sampler is so sweet and the recipient is going to love it. I also congratulate you for finishing a WIP to end your year. I know that you are feeling quite happy about it. It definitely is a battle for us stitchers, isn’t it? I also had a bit of self control myself; picking up a WIP for my new year’s project rather than start a new one. It is definitely a challenge. I wish you all the best in 2016 and many stitchy finishes πŸ™‚
