This week I was able to finish three items. 2 were WIPS and 1 was a recent start and I also started a new project.
The first finish was the Victorian Hearts cross stitch. There were a lot of color changes in these. But they look nice now that they are done. Of course I still have to make them into hearts but the stitching is done.
The second finish is the tartan thistle bookmark I purchased from England late last year. This one I'm not to happy with. I may make another an change some to stitches on the tartan squares. When you do the backstitching, the long stitches get all messed up.
And lastly I finished a plastic canvas pincushion I had started years ago. It only took about an hour. Just have to add some lace to it later this week. No pictures of these finished yet, hopefully by the end of the week.
I started Scarecrow Sweetie. Having a bit of trouble because the fabric I chose to use is so close to floss colors I'm having a hard time seeing. I hoping when the detailing is done the apron on her will pop.
