Belated WIP Wednesday

Were you looking for my WIP Wednesday post last night or today?  Sorry I didn't get anything up on my blog, I was too tired to blog.

I'm still not settled 100% on any one project, this week saw me working on three of my WIPs.  My friends and regular readers know that's very unlike me to flit from one project to the other!  I am certainly a one at a time girl!

I've put a few more thread lengths into Arabian Woman, a Lanarte Kit.  I think I'm going to really look forward to focusing on her at some point.

I've also put a few hours over the weekend on The Big Red by The Silver Lining, I think I missed working over one!

I think I've spent most of my stitching time on Peacock by Alessandra Adelaide Needleworks.  On the up side, I finished all of the dark outlining and now its time to fill it in with all of the gorgeous blues that remind me of the beach in the Dominican Republic!  Also I'd say the end is in sight with this piece!



I was determined to do a little finishing this weekend, its certainly piling up!  I finished up these three motifs from Red Threads by Rosewood Manor.  These are all whip stitched together with a beaded edge.


Next out of the to be finished bin was this Primitive Hare freebie.  I've done a flat finish on this and embellished it with a red/white polka-dot ribbon bow on the top and a pearl head pin.  Ideally I'd like to get a few pieces finished each weekend, we'll see how ambitious I am this weekend!

Oh I love your finished ornametns with the beaded edges. I love beaded edges but rarely ever use them for my finsihes. I should change that. Great finishing on the Primitive Hare piece as well. You were on a roll, weren't you :) Nice progress on your WIPs.

I love your finishing work. Great progress on your WIPs regardless of how much it is :)

Carol said...

I am a one project at a time stitcher, too, Dani, so I can understand your feelings about the three big WIPs you have going. They're looking great, though, and your finishes are darling--love the polka dot ribbon on the last one :)

I really love your peacock! Can't wait to see it all filled in. Your ornaments are really nice too...I have so many laying around that I have to "finish"...One of these days!

Peacock is gorgeous. I like the idea of doing the "colouring in" next!
Your ornies are lovely too, especially the beaded edges.

Justine said...

Great job on your finishes! They're lovely. I really like the Lanarte woman. Peacock is looking gorgeous too. I can't tell what the other one is going to be...Will have to look up the finished piece!

It'll be interesting to see which one becomes your focus piece I can see an attraction in each one. Great finishes - something I need to get working on.

Pretty finishes and I love a good mini rotation of WIPs.

Your finishes look great, that's one thing I'm terrible at actually doing, I've a whole box of things that should be finished. Peacock is coming along great, looks like it will be fun filling in the missing colors, like a coloring book project :)

Julie said...

Love the spotty ribbon on the little finish.

Meari said...

Congrats on your ornament finishes. I say finish Peacock. You're so close and I have a feeling it will be beautiful!

Lovely finishes Dani and your WIPs look amazing.
