My machine sewing supplies continue to be all packed away waiting for the move that is happening in the next couple of months. So in the meantime, I slow stitch by hand. And that is a good thing because it is soothing and relaxing. It just might get warm enough today to actually take my stitching outside into the sun..... I hope.
I have finished the Victoria Samplers Family Sampler. We went and picked out frames for it last week. I’m hoping they will be in this week and then I can get it stretched and framed so it can count as fully finished. Here’s a close up showing the finished pulled thread work at the bottom. I have never done anything like this before, so it was a bit of a challenge. But I like learning new things so it was fun too.
And then because I’ve had a couple of finishes in the past couple of weeks, I treated myself to a new start. This is also from the Victoria Sampler people. Considering I started this last Wednesday, it is going quickly. It a piece celebrating Canada.
It has the cutest goose in the row I’m currently doing. This is row 7 out of 15 so almost halfway done this one. I am hoping that in our new place I will have a wall somewhere dedicated to this kind of needle work.
