Over the Christmas break I started reading blogs again after a long hiatus and I discovered the Ten Hour Stitcher’s Fully Finished Gallery SAL. It has inspired me to start tackling the drawer/wardrobe of shame! I have a drawer full of small unfinished pieces, and several larger ones which are hanging ready to be framed.
I have two finishes to start off this post with. Firstly a larger one, the Peak District sampler. I stitched this years ago, I don’t remember exactly when. I bought the frame last year but hadn’t got around to actually framing it. I originally bought a double mount, but I’d got my measurements wrong, failing to account for the fact that I’d want some fabric visible outside the green border, so I had to scrap the inner one. I think it looks good with just the green though.
Second, a tiny little FFO I’m calling party time raccoon! Again it was stitched a while ago, it came with the frame and little mount so I don’t know why I hadn’t done this earlier. The only thing putting me off was the instructions were in french. I google translated them but they didn’t really tell me anything I couldn’t have worked out myself!
Hopefully I will have some more ready for next month, fingers crossed.
