Hey there, fellow stitchers! I have some great progress on a couple of my pieces and one finish! I really honed in on three pieces, so there are only three progress pictures to post, but I'm still very proud of the work I did this month.
First things first: Poppy Pair. I have finished the half stitching on this one and have started the backstitching. I don't think I am going to stitch the words that go in the background, though. They don't actually say anything, and everyone I have asked thinks it would look fine without them. Really glad to be almost done with this one.
Mariner's Light: I am having too much fun working on this piece. There's a lot of detail, but at the same time, it's a small piece, so I feel like it is going pretty fast. This is a fun one to tackle if I have a lot of time and I want to watch a bit of TV in the background.
Finally, I have my first 2014 finish! I finished Tall Flowers two weeks ago, and I am so happy with how it looks. This one was pretty easy to do, and it is such a pretty pattern. I really like Just Nan patterns right now. I think I'll go out and buy myself another one soon. I'm not sure what I will do with this one. I'll probably frame it soon, but for now it goes with my other finished stitchwork (which believe me is a very small pile.)
That's it for my Turtle Trot pieces this month! I hope to have a lot more done by April, and hopefully I can have Poppy Pair finished by then.
Until next time,
Teenage Cross Stitcher
