Back from the Framers & Stitching Challenge Revealed!

This week I have picked up my All Our Yesterdays The Lighthouse back from the framers. I really love how this looks and am really pleased with the finished result. Not cheap but I think it is worth it.



I have also finished the Stitch and Stash Monthly Stitching Challenge this week with the help of my mum and her sewing machine, only a week late. I finished it into a stuffed ornament and have to say it is not too bad for a first attempt well my second really but they are almost a year apart so I am classing it as my first attempt lol.



The fabric behind it is what I backed it with. I have to say I really loved stitching this and love the colour, Crescent Colours, a blue, not sure which lol.

I have been stitching on my Lady in Blue and will post a picture next week so you don't all get bored of seeing it. I really loving this one and haven't stitched on anything else all week.

Until next time, happy stitching

AOY Liughthouse is brilliant, the framer did a fab job.

I love this ornament in blue, might have to do it again myself, i tend to handsew ornaments as i make a mess of them when using the machine LOL

I love the blue you chose for the ornament, Lesleyanne! I've never seen it in anything but red, but I just love the blue. And your AOY piece is darling--wonderful work :)

That AOY has been framed beautifully and yes definitely worth the money! And well done on the S&S monthly challenge I love the colours you've chosen.
Happy Stitching

Your AOY looks fab - I know framing can be expensive but after all the hours work that goes into a piece it is definitely worth the money to show it off so beautifully :D Cute ornament too :)

The Lighthouse looks fantastic Lesleyanne. Most definitely worth it:)

Love your ornament. The blue is really pretty.

Lisa said...

Your framed Lighthouse looks gorgeous, I love designs like that, wish I lived on the coast.
And your ornament is very cute, I stitched this design last year and made it into an ornie for a friend.
