Winter Quaker


It's been so long since I had anything to post about that I've all but forgotten I even have a blog! It's not that I haven't been busy - I have, but most of what I've been working on is top secret. Hopefully I'll have pictures to share in a few weeks.
Meanwhile one small thing that can be shown is the Winter design in a set of four seasonal quakers by Homespun Elegance. I love this series and want to stitch the other three in the set. This one (my favourite) is done on 32ct Lambswool linen using Carries threads.
Thanks for looking!

Margaret

This is such a sweet little pillow. I have never seen this design ~ that stash diet thing again...lol. Have fun stitching up the other three. And thank you for your comments on CTS. I love to decorate and hope by sharing that, others will start to decorate more. I am glad you remembered that blog now too. :)

Hola Margaret! I love your Merry Winter, and as always, you did a gorgeous job of stitching and finishing! I have looked at this series several times, and now you have inspired me (or is it enabled me!). Very beautiful!

Beautiful little pillow, Margaret. It looks very cute in your tree. I haven't had much time for blogging lately, either. I hope you have a very happy Christmas.

Your little stitchery is very nice! I am very attracted to these. I received one as a gift from a blogging friend. I am not sure if it is from the same set of designs but it is very similar.

Brigitte said...

Such a beautiful design. I love Homespun Elegance very much. And I love it being finished in a little pillow. my favourite way of finishing at the moment.

32 Count sounds tiny. Is it difficult to see to make the stitches? The smallest count I've ever used was 22, would that be hardanger cloth, I can't recall. I don't do cross stitch anymore but I always loved doing it.

Joni said...

Oh, Margaret, this is just beautiful. I love Carrie's Threads as they are so vibrant. Lovely job.

Have a nice weekend
