A couple of finishes.
It's a while since I blogged, but I have been stitching honest. I've done some secret stitching, which obviously I can't show, and then I've stitched on the Monthly Challenge, but have yet to make that up, and that's another thing I can't show until reveal day. But I can show these ....
First we have Radiant Diamond Sampler by The Sweetheart Tree, I started this on Friday night, and finished it on Saturday night. I was just tidying my stash when I came across this pattern, it was probably an ebay win, and decided to stitch it there and then. It had the fabric with the chart, so I only had to pull the threads. I'm undecided how to finish it, so would love to hear your thoughts.
Next we have Tracy's Round Robin. I just hope that Tracy likes how I chose the colours.
As Tracy's main colour is the green, and then highlights in purple, I admit that I found it really hard to decide which parts to do in the purple in the second page. I was going to do all the flowers in purple, but then thought it would be just too much with those big flowers, and then there would be more purple than green. Anyway I suppose everyone would have stitched it differently, and it's easier to say with hindsight. But the idea is to make it individual, so fingers crossed that Tracy likes it.
