Recent Finishes

'Home of a Needleworker Too' by Little House Needleworks-stitched with Crescent Colours on 28 count lambswool linen. I changed the green, but can't remember the name....maybe Spinach? Oh, I also changed the blue as I didn't care for the dirty looking blue color for my house, so changed to GAST 'dungarees'. Check dye lots if interested in doing the same thing-some dye lots of 'dungarees' have plenty of the dirty blue in them too.

This is 'Bunny Blossoms' by Full Circle Designs, stitched on 28 count Vintage Autumn Field linen. I used the DMC colors (model was stitched with GAST), because they were prettier and 'popped' more. The chart came with a little piece of WDW wool, which looks exactly like some regular cream colored wool, out of which I cut the cute bunny and blanket stitched him on.

Caffe Latte by Little House Needleworks, stitched on 40 count Lakeside Vintage Examplar linen with Belle Soie silks.

And hot off the ironing board!!!! is 'Where My Heart Blooms' by Blackbird Designs, stitched on 30 count R&R Korty's Special Blend with WDW and Crescent Colours. I changed WDW 'olive' to CC 'Joshua Tree'. And I changed the Shaker White to CC 'Khaki Mocha'.
I was determined to finish this sampler before starting anything new, and I'm so glad to have stuck with it. The house seemed to drag on forever...... Anyway, I have several WIPS (ufos) that I'm feeling guilty about and thinking I should give some attention to. The trouble is that I also have a lot of things I'd like to start. But I'm sure nobody else can relate to that. ;) I'll gather up all the WIPS in one place later on today for a reality check.
It's a really overcast day here today, so that's my excuse for bla pictures this time.

Well, I'm off to decide what to stitch on next.

Excellent job on the finishes : ) I particularly like the bunny one, tho, I tend to have bunny motifs in a lot of my stitching!

Enjoy the day

A very VERY belated comment to your post (I'm sooo far behind with my blog reading it's not funny!) - anyway, I wanted to say how gorgeous all your finishes were, but also to thank you for including what blue floss you swapped for LHN's Home of a Needleworker Too ... I hated using Old Blue Jeans for the Sampler Lady (plenty of 'dirty' bits!), and I've been wondering what to use instead - considering I'm a "blue" girl I don't have a huge collection of blue threads and not much on display on the LNS, so that's great to see another option stitched up :D
