Two Finishes / SAL Progress!

I want to start off by thanking you all for your kind birthday wishes. I have never had so many comments and am thrilled I have reached over 200 followers.

I stitched and finished Lizzie Kate's Peep last week and used the fabric in the background to make it into a pillow. The finishing is not great I had trouble with the corners but I am still quite pleased with it.

I also finished up Lizzie Kate's Sampling Easter the same way, this finish is a little better.

I thought I would show you a picture of them in my spring basket. I may stitch a couple more this year but haven't decided.

Finally my progress on LHN's The Tea Room. I am stitching this with Angela. I have to say I am loving it. I love the colours the design uses. I am stitching it on 14ct blue marble aida.

Talking of Angela, she has asked if I would like to stitch an ornament a month with her. I, of course agreed, and my March ornament will be LHN's All is Calm and I will show my finish at the end of the month.

Until next time, happy stithcing

Congrats on the finishes. I love them both and you did a great job at making them into pillows. The Tea Room is looking good. I started it last year for the 2100 CJC and haven't touched it since.

Sally said...

Your finishes are so sweet Lesleyanne. Love your Spring basket.

Gorgeous progress on your SAL with Angela.

Dani - tkdchick said...

Your spring basket is looking great!!! As for your corners do you want crisp, sharp corners? If so before turning your piece right side out clip the corner with scissors so you have an angle then when you turn it right side out, use something to help poke those corners out from the inside.

lesli said...

Two finishes! I'm so jealous! :) They are just lovely, Lesleyanne! congratulations!
Beautiful update on The Tea Room!

Pumpkin said...
