New Project

Yesterday I started stitching up something new. It's another small project and (assuming nothing comes up unexpectedly) this time I plan to finish it in a timely manner - unlike the Alphabet Tree.


Sorry about the shading in the picture. I'm stitching this little guy up 1/1 and I'm loving how delicate it is turning out! I know there's relatively no hope of frogging anything done over 1, but I'm taking the risk. I want to make it into a tin to include in my "Sister Box" to, naturally, my sister. Here's hoping it turns out and my eyes can manage the strain until it's finished. This is also my first LHN project - even if it's a freebie :)

In other news, the April challenge for the Monthly Finishing Challenge has been posted. It's a needleroll. I'm nervous! Thank goodness we have a full month for this one!

Well I'm off to finish making myself presentable. We are having a memorial mass this morning for my FIL and then we are going to the cemetery to bury his ashes. Sorry to leave you all on a sad note.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!

This is beautiful! The over one gives it such a precious look, and I love the way the tree and the leaves look so delicate and detailed!
