ISHW!!







I managed to get some decent progress this round. The fob is from "Ewe & Eye & Freinds" with some slight modifications, I used fibers I had on hand and did it over1 on 28ct, and then used dmc 729 for the cord and tassel, and added french knot bees. The back did not have a design so I backstitched "Bee Kind" and scattered more bees around. The bird project is "Mary Wigham Wardrobe" by Judy Odell and so far I got the first panel done and another started. It is on 28ct Light Mocha with Needle Nessessities 196. Very easy since it's just one color and a simplistic design but it packs some punch I think. I chose a brighter color sceme than the recommended, mine is more fall flower colors. I plan to make other changes as well when I get that far. But for now I'm off to see how everyone else did for ISHW... Thanks for stoppin by! :)

BTW... did the package ever get to you? Every one else have received theirs but since I haven't heard from you, I hope it's not lost. :(

Kate said...

I had sent an email but maybe it got lost? Everything did come and thank you, I'm working on a return-the -favor... but no hints ;)

Both are beautiful! I love the NN thread you are using. It really makes the Quaker motif come alive.
