WIP Wednesday May 12, 2021

Hello Everyone! Welcome to Works in Progress Wednesday where I share progress on my cross stitch projects. I have two finishes to share today, too! Yippee!

I finished Salute to Abigail by Blackbird Designs. I made a lot of progress on it during the first weekend of May for the #bbdweekendsal and decided I would continue to stitch on it until it was finished. I’m not sure how I’m going to fully finish it yet, maybe something very simple or maybe framed.

I started Abigail as part of my Patriotic Maynia last year. I have not added up the days stitched on it yet, but here are the rest of the statistics:

  • Fabric – 32 ct Lakeside Sand Dune
  • Floss – CCW Cupid and DMC 115 (red), CCW Blacksmith Blue (dark blue), Weeks Sky (med blue), DMC 3865 (white) Note: used 2 skeins of all except 3865.
  • Date started – May 16, 2020
  • Date finished – May 6, 2021

I also finished the Let’s Talk Spring small by Hands on Design. I haven’t decided how to fully finish this one either, but it will probably be round.

  • Fabric – 32 ct Charcoal Lugana
  • Floss – all called for
  • Date Started – April 20, 2021
  • Date Finished – May 5, 2021
  • Days Stitched – 7

I also got a little time in on Gathering Berries by Luminous Fiber Arts. I finished the left side border and after recounting several times, I think it’s the right number of stitches. When I work on it next, I’ll continue to work on the borders just to make sure they meet.

Previous Scenic Farm progress.

Scenic Farms current progress. I haven’t worked on this every morning since the last time you saw it since I took time out to work on Abigail so progress has slowed a little. I will say working white stitches on white fabric is not the easiest. I had to be really careful with the placement and we’ll just say that some of it had to be redone occasionally. I will work a little bit more on the bottom, then do the backstitching in the trees before moving to the bottom section. I’m getting ready to stitch the stone house which will require lots of color changes.

I didn’t take pictures, but I took a day to kit up several new starts. I got the rest of the called for DMC for Flea Market Flowers by Lori Holt so it’s ready to go. I plan to start my version of Liberty Quaker by Misty of Luminous Fiber Arts. I hope the finish will work out as planned. I also kitted up two new freebie Saltbox houses by Melisa of Pinker n Punkin Quilting & Stitching, Sarah Jane’s 1776 Saltbox and Katie Anne’s Saltbox. These should keep me busy for a while, plus continuing to work on my other WIPs.

I hope you have a great rest of your week and thanks for stopping by.
