Some Finished Pieces




Most unusual for me but I have finished some pieces! With school holidays fast approaching I know there won't be much quiet time for creating wonderful things for a few weeks, so I have ignored the housework and got these done. They have gone through a few changes since the last pictures, with stitching added and bits torn off, and I have mounted them on canvas boards. Depending on how the hols go, I might persuade the children to join me in carrying out Cas's suggestion of pasting down all the left over bits and pieces in one giant random collage and then looking for interesting bits to work on. I'll let you know if it works.

Well done! I've not unpacked everything yet, but hope to do something this weekend.

They are beautiful! Thankyou so much for the lovely card which arrived this morning. I have been very touched by people's kindness. I am feeling loads better so I hope early treatment has done the trick.

Hi Jane, great results ...your samples look fantastic. Loved meeting up with you and the other distant stitchers, it was so much fun that I can't wait for next years!!! Let us know when you have music to go with your assessment piece.

Hi Jane, these are fab! I must dig out one of my other pieces from summer school to see if I can improve it.

These are wonderful -- so loose and light and airy, as if you've really let yourself go which (at least, for me!) is a real challenge! Bravo!

Hi-I found your blog via In a Minute Ago-only to discover you live very close by (I'm N. Wilts). I love this last piece you posted and am going to explore your other stitching too.
