Gorgeous stitcheries and FNSI


It is Friday night again, and another FNSI - so lovely to join in with so many others.
I have been working on some stitcheries lately. These 2 are projects from our Lets Get Stitched weekend.
 Above is the beautiful stitchery for Vicki's table runner.  For this I used the Aurifil 12 threads in the colours Vicki had used in her sample (because I liked it so much).  These threads are so lovely to work with.  I am now ready to sew the table runner - maybe at the weekend.
 This is the stitchery design from Rosalie Quinlan, which I worked in Cottage Garden thread - Delphinium.  I now have to decide how I am going to use the stitchery.
In the bottom corner is the Christmas bird stitchery I am working on now.  It is a Teddlywinks design I purchased in Melbourne.  I am using some of the Aurifil threads as well as some DMC stranded cotton for this one.  I think I will continue working on it tonight.

As well, I have some secret stitching to have finished for Sunday, but I cant show that until the end of the year.

Hope you all enjoy your Friday Stitching - and have some yummy goodies to share.

The table runner stitchery is lovely - and of course the Rosalie Quinlan one is too! Dont want to get tempted by Aurifil threads - that will start another collection! You got a lot done!
