April's progress

Just a little update as I have a couple of finishes to share - firstly March's Round in Circles. Unfortunately Ilke's mum passed away and so understandingly March and early April so a slight pause in Mabel Figworthy's Round in Circles Hardanger Stitch-along - however I finished my March piece and am looking forward to starting April's when Ilke is ready - there are times when life, love and family are more important than stitching.

March - Round in Circles SAL
I have also finished Jardin Prive's Autumn Tree which means my Four Season's SAL 2015 with Needlecraft Haven is now complete - a little late but it's done. It means now I can change the design in my frame for each season. I do need to iron and back my autumn tree with interfacing to stiffen it so it looks a little bumpy in the photo but I wanted to show it in the frame.

You can find the charts on Jardin Prive's free charts page.

My stitching plans for April are to catch up on the Monthly Christmas Challenge on Needlecraft Haven - I need to stitch last months and this month's free chart has been revealed.

I love running Needlecraft Haven - it is a members only forum so if you'd like to apply for membership this is the link Needlecraft Haven link.

  9. The hardanger looks so lovely, I really must give it another go sometime... I say that about a lot of things recently.

  10. The hardanger is lovely. It's one type of embroidery I would really like to try. The 4 seasons look lovely. I only got as far as stitching Spring in my choice for the seasons sal so I plan to do summer next month, another thing that will get finished eventually! I really like the frame yours are in.

  11. You've used lovely colours in your hardanger. It's nice to have each of the seasonal trees completed.
