Needlework Days - October 2012

It's time for Needlework Days over at Feisty Tapas! I must admit that I've not been stitching as diligently as before for the last couple of months, but I do have some progress to show on my long-term work in progress!


I think that this is the first time that I have shown a photograph of the entire sampler, and it's coming along nicely. It makes it look so much closer to completion when the border goes all the way around, although it's deceptive because there is lots left to stitch. Of course the border didn't match when I came to join the two parts, but fortunately I only had to undo a little bit to find the mistake!

I'm working on the top left corner at the moment, just because there were lots of bits in the same colour. I like to finish off a colour of thread rather than leaving odd little bits lying around.

Here's a link to the original sampler by Moira Blackburn, and I'm working it from a kit. The kit seemed expensive at the time, but in terms of the amount of time that it has kept be occupied for it has been well worth it!

Do you have any needlework projects to share? We'd love to see them, come over and share them!

  1. Fantastic and no, you hadn't shown us the whole thing yet. I love the mistake part, I do that all the time, in fact when I'm tired sometimes it's all I do! Thank you for joining in!

    1. Thank you! I do seem to have spent a lot of time unpicking lately, perhaps because I usually stitch in front of the television!

    1. Thank you! I am very pleased with how it is turning out. It's taking ages, but I'll be sad when it's finished so I don't want to do it too quickly!
