Stitch from Stash – March update

I’ve had quite a good stitching month during March. First of all I stitched some more on my Papillon Around the World in 80 Stitches until it looked like this…



I was going to carry straight on to the next part but I was overwhelmed with a need to finish something off…


I’m really pleased to have this finished. It isn’t framed yet as I was going to frame it myself but haven’t managed to find something that will fit it. I may give up and take it to the framing shop!

The ‘finishing off’ bug was still present so I moved on to finish Miss Peepers…


Again, she isn’t framed yet as I was going to frame her myself but again, I have failed to find a frame. I really think I will be paying a visit to the framing shop!

That ‘finishing off’ bug was still alive and kicking so I moved onto my Blackbird Designs  piece which went from this…


to this…


Not as much as I intended but you can at least tell where I’ve visited! I think the bug may be wearing off a bit now. My plan is to finish this part of the Blackbird Designs and then play with another part of Papillon. I am starting to feel the itch for a new start – I’m hoping that a section of Papillon will calm that down somewhat as I made a list of WIPs last weekend and it’s really quite shameful. Actually, I think I’ll post it here just to strengthen my resolve to shorten the list.

    That’s a fine list of WIPs :-p
    I thought I had a lot on the go. You’re putting me to shame.

    Papillon is looking smashing. Yours is so neat.

    I actually only have one WIP because it’s so huge and small and I can only work on it in daylight because I don’t have a great lamp to work by, but otherwise I can’t start a project and not finish it! I can’t imagine having that list of WIPs, I’d go nuts! 🙂
    The only exception is when I’m lost in back-stitching, cause back-stitching gets pretty boring after a while and sometimes I’m impatient to start another project. But I usually go right back to it because it ends up on my desk starting at me til I do. ha ha
