Red Poppy and Great Escape Update!!!

I have completed the next part of The Great Escape (from The Stitch Specialists yahoo group).  The stitch was called Queen stitch and made up the feet of the owl.  I was really pleased with how they turned out and found them quite simple to do once I got the hang of them.  However, in stitching up the feet I noticed that I had done alot of the previous part (the buttonhole stitch) in the wrong place.  A lot of frogging and restitching later and voila.......

I have also completed the project that I take around with me on my travels.  This was an internet freebie but I am not sure where I got it from now as it has been on my computer for so long!!!!  I love the bright colours and it has been really cheery to stitch in the horrible weather:

28 count linen fabric
recommended DMC threads
internet freebie
54 stitches by 54 stitches

Next time I hope to update with my HAED Siberian Forest.  I am approximately a third of the way through and it looks fabulous!!!!!

Happy Stitching Everybody!!!


  1. Congrats on red poppy. Looks great. Your Great Escape looks awesome... sorry you had to frog. :(

  2. Your WOL is looking absolutely beautiful! I'm currently doing the same SAL and have to frog some wheat stitches and I've been putting it off *grins* Keep up the fab work :)
