Theme-a-licious Check In - Airborne August


I'm going to start my Theme-a-licious check in with a project that doesn't quite meet the theme but as I mentioned in my plans for August I'm sure must have birds hiding in the trees...

I have finished 'A Stitch in Pine'.  I have the button to go on but I will add that when I (eventually) do the finishing.  I started in in November 2011, the chart and materials where a gift from a friend. She also sent a small cut of fabric to stitch the small pillow on the chart so I have gone straight onto working on that.

Now onto a project that does include birds - 'Fruits of the Vine'  We've been away on holiday this last week so I packed 'Fruits of the Vine' to work on, being away has meant I got some more stitching time than normal.  So I am very happy with my progress.

I have now finished both parts for the needleroll and fob as well as making a start on the sampler. 


I was hoping to be able to share Rosie's finished jumper as I finished the sewing up while away however when she came to try it on the neckband was too tight so I need to redo it and of course I hadn't taken suitable needles with me. So that's the first job for this week...

I love Fruits of the Vine, it's a neat design. What a pity about the neck not being right - that's very frustrating.

Beautiful projects and beautiful stitching!
