WIP Update

I have spent the past couple of days on two projects. First is a magnet for a exchange in my ILCS group. I can't share a picture of that one with you yet but will as soon as my partner receives it. I still have a little backstitching to do on it and then as soon as the beads I ordered arrive it will be finished and winging it' s way across the pond.

The second project I've been working on is the "Hen Pincushion" from the "Coq Au Pins" set. Again I'm waiting on a order of thread for this one. It's almost half done now and am really anxious to get the threads so I can finish the hen and get on to the other parts of the set.


"Coq Au Pins" Hen
Tonight I finally have gotten back to working on finishing "Queen of the Needle". I would love to have it done so I can take it across town to the framers. I have never used this frame shop but the owner is also a stitcher and I have seen the amazing work they do. This will probably cost a arm, leg and first born child to get done but after stitching on it for 6 months I think it will be worth it.
Until Next Time when I announce the PIF winners......Happy Stitching

Your WIP is looking great, it sure is frustrating when you have to wait for threads to arrive!

Looks really nice. Don't you hate it when you run out of thread!

Lovely subtle variegated shades in this thread!Splurge a little on the frame.... it will be oh so worth it.

Really pretty - especially like the thread. Just got one of mine back from the framer and it makes it look so much nicer. Queen is worth paying a little (ok, maybe a lot) extra for.
Love your description!

Can't wait to see your Coq au pins growing. That thread your are using for it is just lovely.
