To celebrate new life at spring I made an abstract Sumptuous Surface Embroidery picture with cherry petals,
For the Hina Festival I made a fish,
and my contribution to NHK's Partnership Charity Quilt project was this block of Swedish peppermint sweets,
I created a few new stumpwork portraits
and I visited a number of quilt shows, where I had the chance to enjoy the company of my many friends.
So what have I produced in the last week of this year?
TASTy Beads Galore
I used TAST #37 Beaded Hedebo Edge to start this flower.
Pile 'em On
Some more stitches were added to the 'mess' in the centre. I also started on another pulled work area, using Wave Stitch Filling.
I have measured,
and started stitching a bit on this 'mystery' project.
I'm a lucky girl who received lovely Appleton wool for Christmas; perfect for this project.
Work In Progress Wednesday was started as a support program by Sharon of Pintangel. It helps you focus on working towards completing a slow or stagnant needlework project, by reporting on your progress each Wednesday. It has worked wonders for me. Try it!
Wishing you all a good last day of 2014 and a bright, creative New Year.
