WIPs Wednesday For Wednesday, March 16, 2016

This past weekend was my birthday weekend, which meant a three day weekend for me. I always thought that people should have the day off with pay on their birthday. Even if you don't do anything, it's better than being at work.

This meant that I had plenty of time to stitch. I worked on three projects this past weekend; Motifs Abécédaire 30 , Ocean Daughter, and Lady Of The Flag. I did not get too far with  Lady of the Flag, but I am hoping to get some time in on her again this upcoming weekend. There is not enough to show at this particular point in time, but hopefully soon. 

I did get quite a bit of time in on Motifs Abécédaire 30, but I think I am getting burned out on it. It's a bit larger than I had anticipated, but I am plugging through as I do not want this to end up in the infamous Bin O'Shame


Fabric Used36 count Edinburgh linen in White

Fibers Used: Au Ver a Soie Soie 100/3 Spun Silk in 124, 126, 303 and 663

Stitcher's Notes: Began Friday, March 4, 2016.

I also picked up more than my fair share of birthday stash. This next new start is one of the ones that I managed to snag here recently. I have wanted to stitch this for a very long time. I was able to purchase the chart at a reasonable price and could not wait to get started. This one will be a nice break from other projects as it is a single color design. 


Design: Ocean Daughter (retired)

Designer: Who Knew?! (Retired as of 2012. Formerly distributed by Picture This Plus)

Fibers Used: Au Ver À Soie  Soie d'Alger in #205 (Paon)

Stitcher's Notes: Began Monday, March 14, 2016. Chart picked up as part of birthday bash. Substituted the fabric ( Crystal Lagoon 32 count Belfast) and the Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk (Bejeweled).  Who Knew?! used Alison Tanner’s Mermaid and Garden Fairy stencils which were available at the time from Stensource International (which is now part of Quilting Creations). Stitched with one strand of silk over two fabric threads. 

Time for me to go. I hope everyone is recovering from Daylight Savings Time and is having a great week. :)
