The Next Project

Tonight I have done the lace filling on two more diamonds of the hardanger runner and hemmed around half of it.   As a reward I selected the floss and fabric for my next project which is to be of little crosses:-)
These colours don't look very festive but they are destined to be a Mary Beale Christmas Wreath = Merry Christmas I (here).   I plan to stitch on a piece of 28 count raw linen from stash and will back it with red velvet.   Of course this will not happen until I have finished the Florentine Pocket and made that into a tote bag.   What a good feeling to know that all the ingredients come from stash.

The end of current WIPs is in sight and I am already in planning mode for the next projects!

  1. A day full of good feeling, eh?
    I think your choice of colour is delightful - why does Christmas have to be bright red/green/gold and harsh white?

  4. Thanks for the link to Mary Beale's website. The photos aren't great but you can see the ornies look lovely and quite Christmassy in subtle colours.
    I love the Advent Sampler she has too. I also had a good laugh at the "How to be British" part of the shop, and on the last page of it - the essential raincoat! I told you that you would need one LOL
