A Finish and a Couple of WIP's

I'm back a little later than I'd intended, but I do have a finish to share with you. After a year of stitching, on and off, I've finally finished Prairie Schooler's "May". It's stitched, I think, on 32ct Antique White Murano using the called for DMC threads.


Last week I decided it was time to resurect an old WIP - Floralie from Papillon Creations. It's ages since I last showed a photo of this and I have worked on it since, before putting it down for other things. Last Friday afternoon I finished off the letter "X" and completed the letter "T".




I've also been stitching on Blackbird Designs Reward of Merit - Summer Iris. This is on 32ct Antique Ivory Belfast Linen using WDW and GAST threads.




Isn't technology great - when it works! Since upgrading to the new Blogger look I've had no end of trouble writing posts, trying to get things in the right place. I really wonder why they have to keep changing things, it all seemed to work okay before for me. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!! Other technology that isn't working for me is e-mails. I'm having no end of trouble e-mailing my friend Julianne in the U.S., my e-mails just don't seem to be getting to her. Julianne, if you're reading this I have replied to your last e-mail this afternoon.


Many thanks for all your lovely comments, and a warm welcome to my new followers and readers.

Such a wonderful finish, Nicola! I've just ordered this chart myself--love those darling lambs :)

Sure hope you can resolve your blogger and email problems--that sounds very frustrating...

Congrats on your finish. Those Prairie Schooler pieces look so easy and yet have such a lot of stitching in them.
Beautiful WIP's.

Julie said...

May has finished up so lovely Nicola.
Happy stitching!

Congratulations on the PS finish, I love those sheep.
Your other progress is lovely too. I need to work on WIPS too, but it is so fun to start something new.
Have a great weekend!

A gorgeous finish Nicola. Lovely WIPs too.

I hate the new blogger interface and found out from Becky's blog how to change back. On your dashboard there is an option gear in the top right hand corner. Click on that and it'll give you options. I've changed mine back.

Oh Nicola, what a wonderful finish this is - and just in time before May starts. I always want to stitch more PS designs because I love them so much, but unfortunately there are also many other designers whose designs I love, lol.
Both your WIPs are certainly just as much fun to stitch as the PS piece.

Goodness, Nicola, that Floralie is gorgeous! Look forward to seeing more!
