Stitching Update...

Count Your Blessings Etui
 I finished stitching The Victoria Sampler, Count Your Blessings Etui a last week, but just now got round to taking a photograph.  I still have the beads to put on and then the finishing.

I have also finished stitching the Scissor Pocket from the this set and am almost finished the Pin Keep, that just leaves the Scissor Fob.  There is a hardanger heart to put on the front that still needs stitched.  I think that I've left it till the end to pluck of the courage to attempt it.  I've only done hardanger a couple of times and find the chart/instructions a bit daunting.  Probably will get to it eventually. 

Once all the stitching is finished it will be finishing.  Will have to set a whole weekend aside to finish all the pieces.  I'm looking forward to the completely finished piece.

Count Your Blessings Scissor Pocket and Pin Keep

I will have to practice taking photographs, these ones aren't very clear, but hopefully you will have some idea of what they look like.  All the pieces have lots of different stitches and it has been a fun stitch.


  1. Wow, Fiona, that looks terrific! I remember you starting that at MB - you've gotten quite a bit done really quickly! Good going.

  2. Such beautiful stitching! Can't wait to see the finished product - it will surely be lovely.
