A Spot of Spring

Spring has definitely sprung round here and to celebrate I stitched The Drawn Threads Spot of Spring.

Photobucket

Worked on some miscellaneous 36 count linen from my stash and the recommended DMC threads. I still need to attach the charm which I will do when I get round to the finishing. I'll probably wait until I've stitched all of the other Spots (hopefully this year!) before I decide on the finishing.

I've also been working on Shepherds Bush's Baby Bug Ball for Rosie. I was hoping to get it finished for her birthday but life got in the way. Still hopefully shouldn't be too long now before it's done.

I've always thought Baby Bug Ball was a cute design - it's coming along nicely, Karoline.

Congratulations on your Spot of Spring finish.

That spot series is such fun, and they stitch up really quickly - of course you'll be done this year! Your Spring is very sweet, and so the Ball WIP.

Paula said...

They both look great.

Oooh, two of my favouritest designs!! DT's Spring is next in line to be stitched, and I just took my Baby Bug Ball out of the 'finished' drawer to take to the framer's for Pelle's room. You're making great progress. And isn't it a fantastic piece to stitch?

Pretty Drawn Thread finish. I've had this chart for a few years, and don't know why I haven't stitched it yet - it's so pretty.

I like Baby Bug Ball too, and look forward to seeing your progress.

Enjoy your Spring (it's definitely Autumnal down here, this morning is a bit chilly but it's shaping up to be a warm day).
