Another Happy WIP Wednesday

Another week another WIP Wednesday, and... another Happy Dance.  Happy stuff first of course!

 Stained Glass Holly
Just Cross Stitch Ornament Preview Issue 2014
Ink Circles
Stitched on 25ct Potato Lugana

Since my last update I finished last week's WIP, this over one ornament.  I haven't done the finishing on it yet, but I already have ideas.  I think eventually I'll pull out and stitch the tree by Ink Circles and in this year's JCS Ornament Issue, there's a Stained Glass Mistletoe too!


After this Christmas finish I moved onto Halloween.  I saw a couple of ladies working on this piece on Instagram (follow me @tkd_chick), and decided it had to be my next stitch!  I picked a hand dyed piece of fabric that's been in my stash for a long time... the company hasn't existed for years now.  I used the required threads where I had them, and DMC where I didn't.

What do you, as my reader think of what I've been doing for the last few weeks?  Do you enjoy these once a week WIP Wednesday posts and weekend PhotoHunts?  Would you like posts more often, less frequently?  Or are you enjoying what I've been doing?

Really love that new Halloween start, Dani... I pulled that one to stitch this fall, too, but don't know if I'll get to it. Pretty ornament as well... Always enjoy reading your blog no matter how often you post :)

Suz said...

I have a feed reader, so if you post more often than I read it, it just means less comments from me (usually), but I'm just happy when people are posting!

That Halloween piece is shaping up wonderfully!

I love the finish! and the new start. I got a fright in a shop recently ... there were Halloween stuff on sale ... is it that time of the year already. Not sure about frequency as my tendencies for posting and reading is all over the place.

Lovely ornament finish! I've had my eye on that Halloween design too :) I think I'm already following you on Instagram.

Lana said...

Lovely finish!! Can't wait to see your Halloween piece finished! I love your blog... Would it be too much to ask you to post 5 times a day? Just kidding!! Post when u can, I'm a die hard Dani fan and will keep reading whatever and whenever you post!

Andrea said...

A great finish and your WIP looks like it going to be spooky!
I don't mind what and when you post, I'm constantly catching up so I get there eventually. :)

Love your ornie, inspiring me to stitch that pair too!

I like people who post once or twice a week! More than that and I can't keep up LOL

Melanie said...

Lovely little ornament. (I'm not sure about a linen called POTATO though. Ha! That's funny to me for some reason.)

I have that Halloween piece done up and I just love it. It has great details/colors. (Nice size for framing as well!)

Brigitte said...

A lovely little ornament finish indeed. And wow, that Halloween piece is really interesting. Looking forward to seeing how it progresses.
AS for your posts - I always love to read them, so just post whenever you feel like.
