It has been quite some time since I last updated this blog! It was a busy almost month but the good news is that I have two finishes to share with you :)
They are both World of Charity Stitching pieces that I signed up to stitch.
The first is R is for Redwork it is a freebie from http://www.brookesbooks.com and there is a letter for each letter in the alphabet that will be turned into a beautiful quilt for a deserving person. Here is my finished piece...
It is actually very small piece so I thought it would go a lot quicker than it did. Filling in the cream color in the center seemed to drag on and take forever! But once I was done the backstitching went very fast. This may be the first time in history that I was looking forward to backstitching haha.
The second piece is for a Veggie themed quilt and I chose my favorite veggie...avocado! I found the pattern at http://www.happy-stitch.net/2012/avocado-pillow-chart/. I thought that this one would take longer but I think I might have stitched it in a shorter period of time than the first piece. I stitched it on 28 count evenweave two over two. Here is my first progress picture...
I meant to take a picture after every color but that didn't quite happen...Here is my next image about halfway done.
This design stitched up rather quickly but I had a few small issues. First the chart had symbols that weren't on the color legend so I had to look at the image and kind of guess on some of the colors where they went. The colors of green and yellow are really not my favorite so I am actually looking forward to stitching the pinks and purples on Birds as soon as I can now. Overall I think it turned out pretty good and I was able to get both of these sent away in the mail today so they can reach their destination in time!
Thank you all for reading. I have been a very bad commenter lately. I have been using the Bloglovin app on my phone so I have been viewing all of your posts and work but it makes it too easy for me to be lazy and not comment on your posts. I'm sorry I will try to be more active with the comments again soon.
