Slow Sunday Stitching on Kathy's Quilts blog has lots of eye candy every week.
I put the last stitches into the Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers #21 project I have been working on happily for several months. Looking back on my blog, I started stitching on May 2; however I tea-dyed the 28 count Cashel linen for the project in mid April.
All the lettering was finished and I added my initials and year below the "Z". I may change the date location as to me it is a bit distracting. Opinions welcome. Now I will consider framing options, after washing and pressing. I love this embroidery.
There are a lot of finished embroidered pieces in the Hoosier cabinet that also need to get to display status.
The poinsettia and pomegranate has been waiting several years. It is a pin keep. The Gingiber bear I think I finished just last year, and maybe the year before for the Lizzie Kate Stitching Forever? I enjoyed them all! I do have displayed last summer's Lizzie Kate stitch. I remixed some motifs I liked better.
Perhaps I should add a few backstitches around Mr. Gull's belly to make it stand out more from the Aida. Alright, now I'm off to the sewing room to get some more quilt blocks made.
