The Flappers Are Dancing....

...Or at least I am because my flapper girls are done at last. I decided to take a little respite from Water Tiger until after the weekend firstly so that I could get Jasmine done; and secondly because I have my grandson here for the weekend which mean any stitching I do needs for my concentration to be divided. Well she was such an easy stitch and I actually got her finished before I went to bed on thursday night (just with about 10 minutes to go until Friday morning).

So may I present Jasmin (with perfume) and Amber (with compact) -


Do you like them, would you like to win the charts for this thoroughly modern pair. If so please state "enter me for the draw" in your comment on this post and I will draw the name for the pair of charts next weekend.

Last night I did this - uh I can hear you saying and what is that meant to be! Well its my homework for the hardanger group this week. I do not like the colour I feel it is far too vibrant for my sort of hardanger, which is why I decided to use it on a small learning piece. Also I hate wrapped bars. I would far rather to woven bars they are so much easier and look so much neater, but alas we have been told it must be wrapped bars. I cannot remember the names of the stitches we are to learn but I will show you the results next time I post.

I will be back to WT on Monday but I am going to use what stitching time I get over the weekend to work on Winter Spot and see if I can have another HD before the month is out.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend doing whatever they enjoy doing. Till next time -

Hugs


may your frogs stay in there ponds

Congratulations on your finishes. I love being a grandma too - it's my best thing besides my stitching and I'm about to have (well not me personally) my 3rd grandchild - well in August. I really love your stitching and my blog list has just grown by yet another one. Love Patti xxx

Lovely finishes.

I'm with you on the hardranger colours but I guess in this case it's all about the experience and not the finished piece.
