Weekend Stitching

Made some good progress on "Tea and Stitches". Now Sarah has a house and a village. She will have to wait to invite Abagail over for tea until I get her garden and table done. There is still some backstitching to be done on the little buildings and the branches for the tree but that will have to wait for a couple of days while I work on a couple other WIP's.




In between stitching the buildings I took a little break and finished this Easter dragon I stitched last year and just put away. Nancy M has talked about the finishing forms that can be used for ornaments and I decided to order one and try it. They really are easy to use and I think make for a very nice finish. I will be ordering more of them that's for sure.



"Easter Dragon" 2008 Free design by Dragon Dreams
stitched on Opalescent fabric with DMC
I also stitched up and finished another cupcake but since it too will be used for a B-day gift I can't share that yet. I can tell you that I did this one on a light tan fabric so it looks like it has milk chocolate frosting (another brain storm that came out as imagined).
Going to put some more x's and bs on "Stitcher's Roll" before it's time to work on Monopoly again tomorrow.
Until Next Time....Thank you for all the inspiring comments and have a Great Stitching week.
