May stitching report

We got some longer leads so here are the first of the pictures! It turned out not a bad stitching month in spite of the furniture chaos. I finished my section on Anne's Quaker Friendship RR (sorry for the wrinkles - the iron still has a NZ plug, we need to buy some more UK ones):


And I stitched M Designs' Peace Tree for the Christmas ornament SAL (Gloriana Cranberry thread on 28ct Haystack linen):


I also made progress on a few other WIPs, helped by the fact that I seem to have acquired a stitching room! What used to be the tiny study is too tiny for a proper office now we're working from home, so all the bits of furniture have ended up in it. And so has my stash. Perfect for sitting quietly stitching. (Sue - look at the colour of the walls - just begging for the Rose and Butterfly Quilt to be displayed don't you think?!) I just need to get some finished pieces framed and displayed to go with my redwork collection!




So, to round up:

  2. I love your stitching space--lucky you, I'd kill for a designated crafty room :)

    I love the colors of Anne's RR, before I started reading and the picture popped up I thought 'that's not a Nicki color' and now I know why.

    Your ornament SAL piece looks great to! I am behind a couple of months on mine. I'm off to the copy shop today though to get a couple of charts ready.

    Glad you're getting settled!
