County Durham - Finished!

Hi all,

I'm pleased to say that I've finally finished County Durham!

Classic Embroidery by Angela Beazley
14 count ivory aida
2 over 1, backstitch & French Knots
Started: December 2005
Finished: 8th February 2014
Total number of hours: 79

Looking at those figures, I'm really surprised at how long it's taken me to finish it!  I suppose that's a symptom of having so many gorgeous WIPs!

I'm going to be finishing off those Valentine's cards today and then doing a bit of my secret project - I can't wait to show you it when the recipient has got it!

Then I'm picking up my Summer Olympic new start - Lady Bug Love, which I'm really excited about!  My yearly goal for this is to finish page 1, so I'm going to try and finish that next.

Hope you're all having a lovely day,

Happy Stitching! xxx

County Durham Progress!

Hello all,

As promised, here is an update of County Durham:

Although I didn't get as much done as I wanted to (I wanted to finish it), at least you can see progress.

I'm really hopeful that next weekend I will get close to finishing it, but that depends on the number of valentine's cards I have to make.

I hand make all my own cards and make lots to order too, especially for my work colleagues.  At some time this year I'll finally get some pictures put on my Arty Sam blog.

Happy Stitching! xxx
