Here are some more of my WIPs
This is the newest wip, I bought this design before Christmas, started it with great enthusiasm and this is how far I've got. In my defense I am finding it very hard to stitch pale colours on pale fabric. My eyes aren't as good as they used to be. I will need to stitch this one over the summer in good day light.
This lady is for DD and is one of a pair, it is also another one that I'm stuggling with, needing daylight for but I've got to get on with this as DD will probably move out sometime this year and will want them for her new home.
I started this one ages ago, probably around 2005. I think I started it in mind to give my Mum. I've done quite a bit of work on this one over the last week or so.
It is a design from 'The World of Cross Stitching' magazine
Unfortunately I can't find the colour picture of this one and I can't remember when I started it but it is a while ago. I know that because since I started quilting around the time I started this blog in 2007 I've hardly done any cross stitch although it used to be my first love.
This design is of a wizard with a dragon and a crystal ball and it is for my Dad. He is a great fan of this sort of thing and would love me to do one of the designs on black fabric that are about but my eyes can't cope so this one will have to do.
Now Manxgirl posted about her wips the other day and I contacted her to invite her to join me in a stitch along to encourage us to get some of our wips finished. We will be posting a photo of our success or otherwise once a week. I am going to concentrate on the wizard for Dad as I would like it finished for his birthday in August.
There is cross stitch part 3 to come and these are the kits I've got in hand waiting to be started-LOL
