Start And Finish

I know, I know, it's been far too long since I've last blogged. For some reason I have found the process of getting pictures off of my Cannon DSL on to the computer, editing them and blogging from my laptop such a burden. Lately I've been thinking about blogging again, I don't know why I just have.  So I'm going to try this on my iPad with not as great quality pictures, but it should be easier and faster and hopefully I'll blog regularly again. 

I've been busy stitching that's for sure, but not to be overwhelmed with a massive catchup post I'm just going to start with NOW. 

At the moment I'm in the middle of several good-sized projects, two are over one, two are over two and one is on 40 count. Lately I've not been committed or "feeling" any one piece, I've just been going with what I have the energy for or what's closest to hand. 


Despite quite a few projects on the go I've had the urge for a new start! On Saturday I was rather impulsive and kitted up yet another project!  For some reason I've been thinking about Just Nan's Peacock Alphabet... So I dive into the stash, pulled all the necessary threads and started it Saturday afternoon!



By Sunday night I started the beading, but my eyes were done and I put it away, not quote finished! The horror, I know! Monday I had a stitchy date with my good friend Janice so I was able to celebrate my happy dance with a good friend!

Peacock Alphabet by Just Nan
32ct Opalescent Lugana, GAST, DMC & Mill Hill Beads

I'm just in love with the blues and greens in this, the fabric, of course sparkly, the beads lovely and the button gorgeous!!!!!  This was an enjoyable, fast stitch.

Beautiful finish--and glad to see you back!

Glad you're back!
What a beautiful finish! The colours are just wonderful. I can see this design being added to my wish list ;)

Love the blues. I personally use my Samsung S4 to take pictures (it has a good camera). The pictures automatically get uploaded to google+ and there is a photo editor there. It makes things much easier to post pictures on my blog since blogger is linked to google+.

Yay it is you!! Peacock Alphabet is pretty. Come back soon!

Gorgeous finish and welcome back. I do photos and write my blog on my phone. It makes it so much quicker than all the uploading.

What a great finish to welcome us back! I've been on a Just Nan kick too, love her designs.

I do take photos with my iPad for FB and then download them to the PC but the quality is pretty poor. For finishes I'd rather take the time to use my camera. I probably spend an hour on each post from start to finish. Which is why I don't blog daily!

Karen said...

Bea said...

What a fun finish, the colors are wonderful. Your earlier finish of Spring Quakers was beautiful too, love all the colors and motifs that the Quakers design had, so much to look at, gorgeous!
