I don't have an actual recent WIP picture for you today, but I do have a Happy Dance! I finished last week's WIP shortly after 11PM last night. Once again this isn't my usual "stitching style" but WIP pictures of this piece kept popping up on my feed on Instagram (follow me @tkd_chick) and I was loving watching a couple of ladies stitch it up. So being the nosy stitcher I am, I asked what design it was and how I could get my hands on it. I was told it was from the 2013 Just Cross Stitch Halloween Issue. Well, of course I had it in my stash! I just love the piece of fabric I used, its been in my stash for many years and its such a shame the company isn't in business anymore I'd love to get my hands on more! I suppose I should do the finishing on this sooner rather than later?
Since I don't have a new WIP for you, how about an old one? This piece is on my mind, its a cross stitch adaptation of the painting "The Accolade". The chart was a gift from my friend Beth who I met through stitching and I've been working on it for quite a few years now. I'll be picking this back up real soon!
Now, how about I share another ornament I did the finishing on back in the summer! This pair are from a chart by Midnight Stitching called Heartstruck Quakers. Aren't these guys adorable? I have to say I found the heart-shaped ornaments a challenge, but I'm very happy with how this cute little duo turned out!
