Summer Hill finish and some new starts

My Summer Hill by By The Bay Needleart is finished - she has more in different seasons that I want to stitch - I have Spring Hill which I will stitch next.


This is my Alphabet Rhyme that I started a while back and I had to unpick the entire alphabet song which I had stitched one stitch out - grrr - then my Qsnap squashed my girl flat which I tried to ignore but in the end couldn't so I unpicked her as well - grrr grrr - but I've got my stitching mojo back for her and this is my progress although I am going to run out of red thread and will have to order in from the good old U S of A - GRRRR!


This is my Blessings and Kind Wishes start from BBD's


I won a giveaway from Carol at Stitching'n'Stashing and this is one of the charts she gave me - I didn't like their choice of fabric for the chart so I decided to pick my own and this is what I came up with - Bitter Betty Brew from R&R



Pray this post finds everyone in good health!

  1. Hi Amanda, some great progress and I love your new start - so frustrating when you have to frog, though, isn't it?

  3. Beautiful finish! I can understand frustrations with projects...heck, I've even thrown away a WIP to just start it all over again before! But great progress on the new start, and wonderful new stash!

  4. Summer Hill is very pretty. I use strips of cotton batting in between Qsnaps and stitched linen. It prevents the squashing. :)

  9. Your finished work is beautiful. I have spent hours taking things apart when they don't come out right, I know you will be glad you did it. I am thinking I want to start one of my projects that has been set aside a while.
