June IHSW results

I got quite a lot done this IHSW.  I managed to get Papillon Creations SAL part two done (minus the beads because I ran out of Nymo thread). This went a lot better than the last part.  I am so pleased with my progress.  I went for it and did the cutwork Hardanger,  it's not perfect but I think it is good for a first attempt.  I am so pleased with it I have decided to do the cutwork in part three that has just been really.  I feel so positive about it that instead of returning to my rotation I am going straight on to complete part three right away.



I also completed the freebie that Abi Gurden sent out to members of The Stitch Specialists yahoo group.  It was so quick to stitch up I did it during the England football game on Friday.  I couldn't really take a great picture, the colours are quite pale but show up nice on the fabric.  For the first time I used the threads from The Crafty Kitten website.  They were really nice to use, the colours were delicious!!!



Happy Stitching Everybody !!!

  2. Your hardanger looks great -- the first time is always the scariest!

  3. Wow Donna that's more than just good for a first attempt. It's stunning. I've been meaning to have a go at one of these but been afraid to, you have inspired me. Great progress on the IHSW!
