March Madness – Another Update

Three more WIPs have been hit by this month’s madness…

#4 – Textile Heritage Fairytale Bookmark

Before & After (6 hours):

#5 – Hinzeit Dark Shadows

After (3.5 hours – busy couple of days).  I thought I had a before shot, but evidently not!  When I picked it up I had the “H” and the spider done, so not bad for the short time 🙂

#6 – Textile Heritage Welsh Farm (new start!)

Completed in 5.5 hours:

#7 – Primrose Needleworks LUV Letters


45 minutes in and I remember why I put it down.  There’s a border of GAST Buttermilk on the Magnolia 40-ct linen (part of it is already stitched above the “Letters”) and it’s like stitching white on white…. ugh.

Progress and a First 2013 Finish

I’ve finished off two more rotation slots:

The Scarlett House’s Christmastide at Holly House:

I added the roof, the apple basket and two trees with this 10 hour block.

And my first DH Small finish:  Edinburgh Castle from Textile Heritage

Don’t let the small size fool you (like it did me).  This little baby took 11.5 hours to complete.

I’m about halfway thru my next slot… 🙂
