2017 WIPs

I came into 2017 with 12 WIPs. I was thrilled as I started 2016 with 17 WIPs. I will list them for you now in no particular order over the next few blog posts. 

1. Mini Alice and Snow White by Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED)
I am delighted to announce I finished this on January 9th. It will be framed and given to my daughter who loves everything fairytales especially the TV show Once Upon A Time. 
It is stitched on 25 ct evenweave using two over one tent stitch. 
 

2. Four Seasons by HAED
This is my HAED focus for 2017. I am currently madly stitching the second page of this for a FB challenge. This is stitched on 28 ct evenweave one over one. 
 

 

3. The Enchanted Mermaid by Mirabilia

I made this a focus from mid-2016 and have now stitched a half. It is much bigger than I imagined and takes lots of patience but I am loving how it looks! This is stitched on 28ct hand-dyed fabric by Chromatic Alchemy using two over two Threads. 

 

 

I will be back soon to post more WIPs.

Congratulations on your amazing finish! That really is a fabulous project and you stitched it really quickly too. It's always inspiring to see a finished HAED.
Your new start is great, I've admired that chart in the past and it will be stunning I'm sure. Fun to stitch each season!
Love the mermaid and the fabric you've chosen is perfect.

Looking forward to seeing your other WIPS soon!

You certainly know how to keep busy! Alice and Snow White look fantastic, I bet your DD will be so thrilled to have it once it's framed.
Nice starts on your HAED and mermaid, she's going to be beautiful.
