Well....I missed posting on the day, but I did get some stitching done yesterday...it was WIP Wednesday over at Friendly Stitchers.
This piece is Winter's Majesty. I started stitching her on Christmas day 2012. She has been languishing in the corner since August 2013. I LOVE this piece!! BUT....there is metallic thread, and blending filament, and Marlette thread, and I nearly lost my sanity! LOL I've decided I really want to place her on my wall...so I need to get busy. If I start to act deranged, please gently place me in a rubber room, but let me have my stitching! OK? She is going to be my Wednesday WIP, but also one of the Wipocalypse pieces I want to finish this year....so here we go. Here are before and after pictures of my progress yesterday.
Here is a little close up so you can see the detail of the snowflakes. It's a challenge with all those short stitches and the metallic thread.
I finished up another piece...except for the personalization at the bottom. I'll get to that later, but I'm calling it my second finish of the year. Unfortunately, I can't show pictures yet, as it's a gift...*sigh* I'll post it when I have given it to them.
Today I begin stitching on In the Land of the Free. I've had this in my stash for a couple of years. I had it on hand in case we did another patriotic exchange over at Friendly Stitchers. We never had another one...LOL!! I have always wanted to stitch it for myself though, BUT...I'm going to get it stitched now, and framed. I'm going to donate the finished product for a raffle for an organization that will help Veterans suffering from PTSD. I may even stitch one for myself while I'm at it! Off to get started now! Have a wonderful stitchy day!
