What I've been stitching lately

I have been keeping up with the Frosty Forest series, managing to get each one finished before the next arrives. I will stitch the buttons on at the very end. I'm not sure that I'll like the buttons on the finished piece, but I decided to get them anyway.



Last year I was lucky enough to win Midnight Ride by Blackbird Designs and the threads to stitch it from the lovely Melissa. It is a striking design, especially with that pop of orange. I think I will finish this simply with a black round embroidery hoop (unless I can find a round box at the craft store). Thanks again Melissa!



I currently have two projects on the go. First up is French Country Baby Carriage (which I've posted about before). I just have to personalise it with the details of Annabelle's birth.



Next up is Just Nan's Little Snow (which finishes up as an owl ornament). I was quite enjoying this piece until last night, when my eyes decided that they just couldn't distinguish between the fabric and thread anymore. The colours are quite muted. I think I'll have to finish it off during daylight hours.



Hopefully I'll be back soon with a couple of finishes.
