Hello Everyone and welcome to Works In Progress Wednesday. I actually only have one WIP that I’m currently working on, two finishes and a new start.
The one WIP is Scenic Farm. We are getting there! Another week or two and this one should be finished! It would be finished sooner if I didn’t stop working on it to finish something else, like I did this weekend!
I stayed up late on Halloween to get Pumpkin Pageant finished! This was a free handout in the ’90s from Cross Stitch Design and the chart is by Louise Young. I did further investigating and did find out that the inner part of the design was published by the Need’l Love Company It does look like the Leaflet might still be available. I am still happy to send anyone a copy if they want one.
I did make a few changes for the floss. I only used two greens, the darker one is DMC 166 and the lighter is 734. I changed the words from one of the yellows to DMC 413. I think it’s really cute and I will make a flat finish and display it on a board of some kind. I’m not sure if I’ll finish it now, or wait until next year.
I also finished a Raven’s Reply by Luminous Fiber Arts. I had hoped to get this one fully finished by now, but other things always seem to come up. I’m also thinking of making this a flat finish. I have several small wood items that I’ve collected over time. I’ll see if it will fit on one of them. This is stitched on 40 ct Porcelain hand dyed by Luminous Fiber Arts and stitched 1 over 2 with the called for threads.
My new start is Thanksgiving House by Melisa of Pinker n Pumpkin Quilting. I started it on Monday and finished about half of the house. I hope to have if finished by this weekend and made into a little pillow for my bowl.
I had hoped to do at least two other fall/Thanksgiving smalls, but I think after I finish the Thanksgiving house, I’m going to move on to Christmas stitching. There are a few things I started last year to finish and few new ones to start.
As I was going through my stitching things, I pulled out everything that I have finished, but needs to be fully finished. As you can see, a few Christmas/Winter things are included. I think I finally have a plan for the two large ones, Farmhouse Christmas (left) and Jack Frost’s Tree Farm (right) both by Little House Needleworks. I’ve had these finished for over a year now so it’s time to get these ready to display. For the Let’s Talk Winter (black fabric, lower left) all I have to do is lace it to the already prepped mat board, then it’s ready to go. Even though I would like to stitch a few more of the Prairie Schooler Ornaments (top), I am going to go ahead and fully finish these for this year. I’m just going to have to set aside a few days in a row to get these finished!
Besides all of this, I would like to get my County Fair quilt finished in time for the Holiday Season! It’s hard to get things done when we go out to play in our pretty area!
I hope you all have a great and productive week ahead. Thanks for stopping by!
