Firstly I've finished the eyelet band on A Flamestitch and I am very pleased with how it has turned out! I love the colours and the shading - AVAS continues to be a joy to work with and my favourite solid brand of silk!
I've also completed the plants and flowers in the cross stitch band:
All that is left to do on this one now is the flamestitch band and to fill in the cross stitch band with black.
I also wanted to say a big thank you to Mii Stitch! I was very lucky to win her giveaway of the chart Pink Sparrow Sampler by Brenda Gervais. It arrived on what turned out to be a very stressful and upsetting day, so was a welcome ray of sunshine!
It goes without saying that this one has been added to the Projects for 2016 list :).
I had thought once I had finished the eyelet band on A Flamestitch that I would move on to other projects, but it is such a beautiful simple stitch that I may just stick with it until the finish - simple and easy is what I need right now!
